Why use a heat pump?
A heat pump may be used to upgrade low temperature waste heat to useful, higher temperature levels with high efficiency. This makes it possible to use energy that would have been discarded otherwise! A global drive towards lower emissions and more efficient use of energy has led to a host of improvements and innovation in heat pump technology. They present a strong case with their technical and economic feasibility.
Even though there are a few large scale installations, widespread use of large scale heat pumps is not yet common. A lack of awareness is probably one of the main reasons for this. If you work in a facility that generates a lot of waste heat, it could be interesting for you to look into alternatives for reusing this lost energy and a heat pump may be one of the potential solutions to your problem.
Compared to conventional systems, heat pumps can bring about 50 – 70% savings in energy costs. How can you determine whether a heat pump would be beneficial for your company? On this website, we help you with information on the technology behind heat pumps and methods to estimate technical and economic feasibility of heat pumps at your site!
