Ambien now offer GROUND SOURCE, AIR SOURCE and SOLAR PV renewable solutions.
The basic purpose of a ground source heat pump system is to transfer heat from the soil (or a pond or lake) to the inside of a building. Notice that a heat pump can also work the other way round, that is, extracting heat form the building and releasing it in the ground. In this post the first functioning mode is taken as a frame of reference. Next you will find a technical explanation of the operation of a ground source heat pump.
The basic elements of a ground source heat pump system are the heat pump itself, the ground loop and the distribution system. Each one of them is a separate closed circuit (the ground loop can be established as an open loop, although this is not its most common configuration), but this doesn’t mean they work independently.
Both the ground loop and the distribution system are connected to the heat pump, with which they exchange heat.
Air Source Heat Pumps transfer heat from the ambient air to water, providing high-temperature hot water up to 60°C. The unique Cool Energy heat hump is widely used for house heating or hot water.
With our innovative & advanced technology, the pro mono block range of heat pumps can operate very well down to-15°C
ambient temperature with high output temperatures up to 60°C. Compared with traditional Oil/LPG boilers, Cool Energy heat pumps produces up to 50% less CO² whilst saves up to 80% on running costs. Cool Energy heat pumps are not only highly efficient, but also easy and safe to operate.
1 Low running costs and high efficiency
• A high coefficient of performance (COP) of up to 5, results in lower running costs compared with traditional ASHP technology.
• No immersion heater supplement is required.
2 Reduced Capital Costs
• Simple installation
• Compatible with traditional radiator systems, under floor heating or fan coils
3 High Comfort Levels
• High storage temperature results in increased hot water availability.
4 No potential danger of any inflammable, gas poisoning, explosion, fire, electrical shock which are associated with other heating systems
5 A digital controller is incorporated to maintain the desired water temperature
6 Long-life and corrosion resistant composite cabinet stands up to severe climates
7 The latest compressor technology ensures outstanding performance, ultra-energy efficiency, durability and quiet operation
8 Self-diagnostic control panel monitors and troubleshoots heat pump operations to ensure safe and reliable operations
9 Intelligent digital controller with friendly user interface and blue LED back light
10 Separate isolated electrical compartment prevents internal corrosion and extends heat pump life
11 The heat pump can operate down to ambient air temperature of –15°C
Using free energy from the sun to produce electricity, solar PV panels produce their energy from daylight, rather than solar radiation, meaning energy is produced even on cloudy days. Suitable for homes, businesses, schools or community buildings and with no moving parts, solar PV provides one of the easiest and most reliable ways to future proof against rising energy costs whilst reducing CO2 emissions.
• Using natural unlimited resources’ to produce zero carbon energy
• Generating up to half of a building’s annual electrical needs from renewable energy.
• Reducing dependency on commercial electricity providers by generating your own electricity.
• Reducing energy bills and minimising the impact of rising energy costs.
• Saving approximately 650kg of CO2 per year (typical 2kWp system)
• Investment in a highly reliable system with a typical lifetime of 25+ years
• Adding value to your property and adding to your green credentials
• Low maintenance - PV systems are silent and have no moving parts.
• Easily meeting planning requirements for minimum contribution from renewable energy.
