The air-to-water heat pump is an increasingly popular choice in both new and old buildings due to its energy efficiency and versatility. But what parts does an air-to-water heat pump consist of and how much space does it require in installations? And is it a suitable solution for old houses as well? Let's consider these questions in more detail.
Air-water heat pump parts:
- Outdoor unit: This is the part that takes energy from the outside air. It consists of a compressor, a condenser coil and a fan. The outdoor unit is placed outside, usually on the wall of the building or on the ground on separate racks.
- Indoor unit: The indoor unit converts the heat collected by the outdoor unit into a suitable one for the heating system and directs it to the water circulation heating system. The indoor unit also contains a hot water heater if the device is also intended for hot water heating.
- Piping: To circulate the refrigerant, a piping system is needed that connects the outdoor and indoor units.
The outdoor unit usually takes up less space than the average air conditioner. It can be placed on the outside wall of the building or on the ground. It is important to ensure that there is sufficient air space around the unit in order for it to function effectively.
The indoor unit can be larger and require more space, especially if it contains a hot water heater. Usually, the indoor unit is placed in a technical space, such as a utility room or a warehouse.
Installation in old houses
The air-to-water heat pump is also excellently suitable for old houses. However, old houses can have challenges, such as a lack of space or an outdated water circulation heating system. Expert installation is especially important in older buildings to ensure that the system works efficiently and safely.
In summary, it can be said that the air-to-water heat pump is a versatile and flexible solution for many types of sites, including old buildings. The most important thing in the installation is to choose an experienced and reliable installer who knows how to take into account the special features of the building and ensure the functionality of the system.
