WHAT ARE GROUND SOURCE HEAT PUMPS?

Ground Source systems are considered more efficient in providing a consistent energy supply and deliver higher performance, economy and reliability for your heating and hot water systems. This type of technology extracts it’s energy from the earth using stored solar and geothermal energy. This energy is transformed by a refrigeration process into hot water and is used for your power and heat requirements. 

How We Work

We offer an End to End service with 5 defined phases, ensuring your project runs with ease from start to finish.

Consultation

We’ll start by meeting with you to discuss your project.

Quote

Once we’ve ascertained the scope of the project, we’ll put together a custom quote for you.

Design

We’ll then produce schematics of your system and send your options to you for approval.

Install

We will install your system using the most up to date technologies and techniques.

Commission

On completion, we will conduct your system commissioning, signing your system off as complete.

HOW DO THEY WORK?

This type of technology extracts it’s energy from the earth using stored solar and geothermal energy. This energy is transformed by a refrigeration process into hot water and is used for your power and heat requirements. 

The Heat Pump Cycle

The Heat Pump Cycle is built up of 4 Phases.

Phase 1- Evaporation:

By means of a heat exchanger, the liquid refrigerant extracts renewable energy from the heat source (air, ground or water) and evaporates the refrigerant into a gas.

Phase 2 - Compression:

By the introduction of electrical energy, the now gaseous, but still cold refrigerant, is compressed in a compressor and thus heated. The refrigerant leaves the compressor as a hot gas.

Phase 3 - Liquefying/ Condensing:

The hot gas now reaches the condenser and transfers energy into the heating system. During this energy exchange the gas condenses and leaves the condenser as warm fluid refrigerant.

Phase 4 - Decompression:

The warm fluid refrigerant is now transported to the expansion valve. As the refrigerant passes through the expansion valve, a significant reduction in pressue lowers the refrigerant temperature without any loss of energy. The cold fluid refridgerant is then reintroduced into the evaporator and the cycle begins again.

OCHSNER Heat Pumps

OCHSNER Heat Pumps of Austria, like EcoSaveIt are a family run business with over 40 years of experience in the Heat Pump industry. Their Heat Pumps are considered one of the best in the Renewable sector due to their quality of build, rigidity of design and engineering and reliability as a green heating system. When you install an OCHSNER heat pump, you are installing something that lasts the test of time.
