Split Heat Pumps

There are many options when it comes to domestic and commercial heat pumps.


Split Heat Pumps | Air Source Heat Pump made up of Two Units

Contrary to what the name suggests, heat pumps do much more than simply heating. These modern systems provide air conditioning and run humidity control. Technically heat pumps transfer heat to cold areas as opposed generating heat. For example during heating season, heat pumps transfer heat from the cold outside to inside your property, and during cooler seasons it transfers the heat from your home to the warm outdoors. There are different types of heat pumps available, depending on the type of property you have and the type of service you are looking for will determine what heat pump is the most suitable for you.

What Are Split Heat Pumps?

Split Heat Pumps are a type of Air Source Heat Pump. There are High Temperature Split Heat Pumps and Low Temperature Heat Pumps. Split Heat Pumps are also known as Ductless Heat Pumps, Mini Split Heat Pumps and Split-Ductless Heat Pumps. Although there are different variations, the shared feature of all Split Heat Pumps is that they have two units: an outdoor compressor or condenser, and one to four indoor air handlers. Split Heat Pumps have a conduit, holding the power cable, refrigerant tubing, suction tubing and condensate drain, links the outdoor and indoor units.

High Temperature Split Heat Pump

HP Energy provide various sizes of High Temperature Split Heat Pumps to fit any property. We cover both the domestic and commercial sectors. High Temperature Split Heat Pumps are less efficient than Low Temperature Split Heat Pumps, however High Temperature Split Heat Pumps only use a portion of energy to that of standard Gas Boilers.


How Do High Temperature Split Heat Pumps Work?

This appliance operates with a hot water storage tank designed to provide sufficient water to suit the individual property requirements. The process of installing a High Temperature Split Heat Pump has minimum disruption as this appliance operates with existing plumbing and radiators. Therefore High Temperature Split Heat Pumps can save you money, improve your energy efficiency and won’t cause you to change any other appliances in your home.


Low Temperature Split Heat Pump

Similar to the High Temperature version, the Low Temperature Split Heat Pump comes in a variety of sizes, fitted to suit both domestic and commercial properties. A Low Temperature Heat Pump operates at much lower temperatures than traditional heating structures. The Low Temperature Heat Pump is best suited for underfloor heating or large radiators. If designed and implemented well this appliance will save you considerable amounts pf energy in comparison to Electric, Gas or Oil heating.


How Split Heat Pumps Work

Split Heat Pumps have two units, one indoors and one outdoors. The indoor unit is much quieter and is installed high on a wall or on the ceiling, much like Air Source Heat Pumps, and are operated by a remote control. Split Heat Pumps have refrigerant flowing through the tubing that connects the indoor and outdoor units. Split-Ductless Heat Pumps don’t need ductwork to function, therefore they are great when used as a single room addition or for homes without ducts. Plus these types of Split Heat Pumps don’t suffer the same energy loss associated with ductwork, which in some cases accounts for 30% of a property’s energy consumption for air conditioning. Also Split Heat Pump systems offer design flexibility.


Split Heat Pumps Cost

The cost of installing a Split Heat Pump with several indoor units can be higher than other systems. However as the Split Heat Pump is a source of renewable heat energy you can apply for RHI to help with the costs.


Ecodan Split Air to Water Heat Pumps

At HP Energy, one of the brands we use is Ecodan. The Ecodan PUHZ-SW is a brand new Air Source Heat Pump Split System. This system can operate singularly or it can also form part of a multiple unit system. The PUHZ-SW unit will be placed outside the property and there will be a Cylinder or Hydrobox placed inside the property. Two refrigerant pipes join the Ecodan outdoor unit to the indoor Cylinder. When this split system is implemented with multiple indoor units, it can cascade the linked units on and off to meet the requirements for the property. This special feature of the PUHZ-SW system is available with the use of up to six units. Although The Ecodan PUHZ-SW split system is compatible with a wide range of commercial and domestic properties however small commercial building units and flats are ideal. This is due to the long pipe runs and the fact that there is no need for water connections outside.
