Heat Pumps for Residential Premises

According to the Australian Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources,  approximately 50% of energy is used for heating or cooling homes. Further, the Department highlights that the contribution of air conditioners to utility bills is almost 40%. This is huge. Now, the question is: Do you want to reduce your electricity bills by replacing your heating and cooling system through advanced energy management? If your answer is yes, then heat pumps are your solution. 

What are Heat Pumps?

Heat pumps are an advanced energy solution system that uses the basic principle of heat transfer to cool down or warm up your house. Unlike other cooling and heating systems, this advanced energy solution does not use fuel; it just moves the heat from one point to another. The heat pump incorporates several components, a refrigerant, compressor, presser value, and reversing value. This advanced energy solution takes air from outside and uses it to heat the refrigerant and convert it into vapours during the heating process. These vapours travel through ducts, and the compressor compresses them to further increase their temperature. Now, these high-temperature vapours travel through the ducts inside the room to warm it. During the cooling process, this process is reversed using reversing value. 

Why heat pumps are useful for residential premises?

Heat pumps represent an advanced energy management system that is very beneficial for residential premises. Some of them are discussed below. 

1. No need to install separate systems to heat and cool your home

The other cooling or heating systems require a separate system to heat up or cool down the rooms. But this is not the case with this advanced energy management system. In this system, you can use only one system to heat up and cool down your rooms. During cooling, it transfers the heat from inside the room to the outside, while during heating, this advanced energy management system uses external air to heat up the room using the same system. 

2. Work extremely efficiently

This advanced energy management system is very efficient. Unlike other heating systems such as gas furnaces, it runs on electricity that is cleaner than oil and gas. Moreover, it only involves heat transfer, so it becomes very efficient. 

3. It saves money

It saves money in multiple ways. First, it uses air as a source of energy, so you don’t need to spend money on a heat source like oil and gas. Secondly, it does not require a separate system to heat or cool the room. So, you save on installation costs. Lastly, the heat pump system itself is not expensive.

4. It is environmentally friendly 

Last but not least, this energy management system is environmentally friendly. It does not use oil, gas, or other fossil fuels, so it does not produce carbon. Hence, it is an important advanced energy management system that helps in reducing carbon emissions, consequently mitigating the impacts of climate change.

Heat management through heat pumps is exceptionally beneficial for use in residential premises. If you are looking for an energy management system in Melbourne, then Advanced Energy Management is the best option.
