Many people are aware of the benefits of a solar hot water system and they’re roughly aware of how it exactly works, but little know that you can also generate hot water with the combining aid of a heat pump. With more and more people embracing environmentally sustainable living choices, heat pumps and solar panels are becoming a more popular arrangement choice.
A heat pump is another great way of making use of renewable energy and provides a larger amount of efficiency when it comes to the energy used up throughout your property and heating utilities.
Heat pumps work all-year round
By using a heat exchange system, the heat pump will transfer the heat in the air outside to be used to increase the temperature in the water that is stored inside the heater. The heat pump, which would obviously be generated and operated through the energy obtained from the property’s solar panels, can be used throughout the winter and in lower temperatures due to a special type of refrigerant being used in the piping.
That means that, even though it might feel cold to us, it’ll still be warm enough to cause the refrigerant to ‘boil’, which will result in it becoming gaseous and compressed to heat the water supply.
They provide a superior cost-to-performance ratio
The use of a heat pump combined with solar panels offers a much greater value for money than the use of a traditional heating system, and it’s also much more environmentally friendly. The installation costs can be rather high initially, but this factor is quickly redeemed by the amount of money you’ll then be saving.
When comparing the cost-to-performance ratio, property owners will have the ability to save so much more money on their utility costs by combining the two forms of renewable energy sources. The different energy sources have opposite notable time periods of efficiency throughout the year, which allows the combination to complement each other nicely and ensure maximum efficiency.
