Great post. I've been thinking about writing something along these lines myself, but you've done a splendid job on the issues of heat pumps. Thanks.


Heat pumps have some impact on the environment as they need electricity to run, but the heat they extract from the ground, air, or water is constantly being renewed naturally.

Tapping into geothermal resourses can save homeowners quite a bit of money and I can understand how a pre-installed heat pump could make the purchase of a house quite attractive.

Geothermal heat pumps;
Air-water heat pumps;
Exhaust air heat pumps.

They are energy efficient complete systems for heating and cooling which is both economic and environmentally sustainable .
This technology is available both for residential single / multi-family and industrial and commercial buildings.

The geothermal heat pump uses as a heat source the subsoil or ground water and allows a cost savings for the heating up to 80%.
You do not need to reside in a thermal area to enjoy the benefits of underground heat: from 10 m depth the soil temperature remains almost constant throughout the year, and around 100 meters the temperatures are around the 10-12 °C constituting a heat source for the optimum operation of the heat pump.

The air-water heat pump uses as a source of heat the outside air and allows a cost savings for the heating up to 50-60%.
It can produce hot water for heating or sanitary uses up to temperatures of 65 °C with only the compressor and work up to temperatures of -25 °C!

The exhaust air heat pump uses as a heat source stale air present in the house, allows a cost savings for the heating up to 50%.
