Heat Pump Technology

The majority of air conditioning systems installed by Pentland Services incorporate heat pump technology.

This technology enables the refrigeration cycle to operate ‘in reverse’, utilising energy
from the external environment to produce heat which is then distributed indoors.

The heat pump cycle is extremely reliable and energy efficient. No electrical heating elements or
gas burners are involved and unlike gas or electrical heating where some of the energy of the fuel
is inevitably wasted, for every 1kW of electrical energy used, usually around 3 to 5kW of heat is
produced. This can reduce your fuel costs and carbon emissions by up to 50%.

Heat pump technology enables ‘free energy’ to be extracted from the ambient air, making heat
pumps extremely cost effective and environmentally friendly as a source of comfort heating.

Air conditioning with integrated heat pump technology provides year-round comfort and avoids the
need for additional space heating systems such as electric panel heaters, radiators or boilers.

Heat pumps are available in a wide range of capacities and can also be used to produce hot water for
heating and sanitary applications.
