Air Source Heat Pumps
If you are looking to reduce spend on your energy bills by generating your own heat, then Air Source Heat Pumps may provide the ideal solution for you. Usually placed outdoors, air source pumps serve as an alternative way to heat your building by taking heat from the air and increasing the temperature using a heat pump. The pump uses less electrical energy than the heat it produces, resulting in being cost effective against the electricity it needs to run.
What Is A Ground Source Heat Pump?
Ground Source Heat Pump Systems harness natural heat from underground by pumping water through a network of pipes that is then heated further by a heat pump at ground level. The size of your building and how much heat you require will determine the size of the ground loop, so if you have need of heating for a large building then you will need plenty of space for the system to be installed.
How Do They Work?
Ground Source Heat Pumps work by absorbing heat from the ground, circulating water through piping in the ground and transferring the heat into the building through circulating hot water through radiators, or underfloor piping circuits. A ground source heat pump can increase the temperature from the ground to around 50°C, although the hotter you heat your water, the more electricity you’ll use. Whether you’ll need an additional back-up heating system will depend on your property.
A ground source heat pump system can help to lower your carbon footprint as it uses a renewable, natural source of heat. A heat pump is very efficient at providing more heat energy than it uses to perform the work needed. This is because most of the energy transferred into the building is procured from the ground and this energy is free.
Solar PV Technology works by converting the sun’s energy into electricity, which can then be distributed throughout a chosen building to reduce the amount of electricity imported from the National Grid. During the day PV systems are actively generating, which can significantly reduce energy bills for busy homes and businesses.
How much energy you generate will depend upon the size of the system you install, which can be determined by the roof/ground space available and the capacity of the local grid. At Thermatic we can help with selecting the right technologies for your business and assist in reducing your energy costs.
Where Does A Solar PV System Work Best?
A Solar PV System works best in sunlight, however, they will still generate energy when it is overcast using ‘diffuse sunlight’. The less obstructions (trees or other buildings) between the panels and the sun the better. Fortunately, we are able to predict likely PV generation as the UK has a fairly consistent level on sunlight.
If it’s a new or Retrofit System you require, we have a dedicated in-house team to deliver just that. With our own design engineers, CAD technicians and experienced project managers, we can take care of your install and replacement needs across all M&E services.
We deliver around 400 installs of varying sizes each year. We deliver very fast turnaround of bespoke solutions and have a formidable track record in rolling out multi-site programmes. Installing commercial HVAC and Electrical services has been at the core of our business for nearly 50 years, so we know what works and can find the best solution for all types of properties.
We are approved installers for all the major heating and air conditioning manufacturers and can present options for any scenario.
Sub Metering and Data Logging
Why might you look to install submetering or data loggers on your site? When further detail is required of a site’s consumption, submetering or data loggers can be installed downstream from the utility meter to give specific focus to areas or equipment of interest.
When you are looking at smaller sites with a fairly simple setup, the main utility meters can often tell you a great deal about how the building is being used, however once you start trying to review a much more complex building it can be advantageous to survey and identify potential large consumers, or areas that could be out of control. In addition to this, through smart planning, virtual meters.
The term IoT is used all the time, but what does it actually mean? IOT stands for the ‘Internet of Things’, and the term refers to an unlimited number of different devices all communicating through the internet to pull together their information.
Why would we engage around IoT?
There is so much information about our businesses, daily lives and the world around us being captured that often there is just too much data to use positively. They key to IoT is taking the hard work out of storing and analysing this data to allow it to produce meaningful action and activity.
