In response to rising energy costs and coupled with the public’s increasing environmental and carbon footprint awareness, there is a growing need for a more efficient method of heating the home with a lower impact on the environment and reduced running costs.
We have developed a range of Open Loop Ground Source Heat Pumps aimed at domestic and commercial applications. The heat pump draws water from the ground (typically a borehole) and extracts heat from it, which is then raised in temperature and delivered to the heated area. Two separate water circuits are available, one for space heating up to 55 °C and another for potable domestic hot water up to 65°C.
Refcool’s Soleco range (below) offer efficiency factors (COP) of 4.5 typically.
