Heat Pumps

Heat Pumps

Industrial heat pumps can be installed to improve the economic performance of your existing hotel heating or cooling needs. A heat pump is essentially an air-conditioner operating in reverse. When used for heating, a heat pump, in effect replaces the current geyser’s electrical element as an alternative source of water heating. The system employs an evaporator, a compressor, a condenser, refrigerant gas, and an expansion valve as its main components, forming a closed heating circuit. Operational times and desired water temperature can custom set to suite factory requirement.
