Heat Pump Technology

How heat pumps work

Heat pumps are integral to an air conditioning system, transferring heat from one environment to another via a refrigerant. Heat pumps also offer a cost-effective heating solution. Air source heat pumps are recognized as a renewable heat technology.

In cooling mode, heat pumps work by transferring the heat from a room or internal space to the outside air, thus cooling the inside area. In reverse, heat pumps can extract latent heat from the outside air (even when the temperature outside is down to -20°C) and pump it inside to heat indoor spaces.

Efficiency of a heat pump

The heat pumps efficiency is around 300%. This means that for every unit of energy used by the heat pump in operation, three or more units of heat are generated to heat the building.

As heat pumps work by extracting available heat from the outside air, they are far more efficient than even the most efficient fossil fuel based heating systems. Heat pumps featuring UNIC's inverter technology are particularly efficient for all kinds of indoor heating.

Using an integrated heat pump solution to both cool and heat a building can also mean a lower initial investment, as well as simpler operation and maintenance procedures.

Heat pumps for homes

UNIC has applied its heat pump expertise to create the new range of domestic heating solutions. High temperature and low temperature options are available to suit all kinds of properties, new and old, large or small. Now UNIC is offering a unique new heat pump solution for single house and for collective buildings.

Heat pumps for commerce and industry

UNIC's commercial heat pump products include VRVs and chillers, which offer highly efficient cooling as well as heating capacity. Within industrial settings, heat pumps also deliver unparalleled process efficiency to meet the most exacting industrial cooling and heating requirements.
