If you’re looking into greener, more cost-effective ways to heat your home, you may already have some knowledge about heat pumps. The term ‘heat pump’ refers to the collective technology that incorporates HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) devices. These pumps provide heat and hot water through a property-wide system. At Steve Cross Heat Pumps, we want you to have complete confidence and clarity before committing to any of our services. As such, on this page, we look at the components found in heat pump systems.
Operating out of Kidlington, our company covers Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey. Some of our key service areas include Oxford, Abingdon, Aylesbury, Banbury, Brackley and Witney, to name a few.
To understand how these devices heat and cool air, it helps to understand the various parts that make up heat pump systems.
Our team installs air-source and ground-source heat pumps. Despite many shared similarities, these systems consist of different configurations. We explore both below.
Air-source Heat Pumps
Typically, the air-source devices we install in Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey consist of two separate systems. Using the process of vapour compression, they transfer hot air from one place to another in much the same way as a refrigerator – albeit reversed.
If you have, or decide to install, one of our air-source heat pump systems at your home, be it in Oxford, Abingdon, Aylesbury, Banbury, Brackley, Witney or the neighbouring areas, it includes four major elements:
Ground-source Heat Pumps
When it comes to ground-source heat pump systems in Oxfordshire, the Cotswolds, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire and Surrey, the basic elements include the ground loop, the distribution system and the heat pump itself. Each of these consists of their own separate closed circuit. While it is possible to create an open ground loop, this isn’t a common configuration.
Despite being separate from one another, these systems don’t work independently. We connect the distribution system and ground loop to the heat pump, where they exchange heat.
If you’re considering a ground-source system at your property in Oxford, Abingdon, Aylesbury, Banbury, Brackley, Witney or the neighbouring areas, you can familiarise yourself with these 3 aspects below.
Our team excels in the installation of both the above heat pump systems. We can provide guidance and advice during an initial consultation to ensure we find the perfect solution for your needs.
