Conservatory Heat Pumps
The conservatory is an important extra room in the home yet many people accept they use the conservatory in the summer months and overlook it as a place to enjoy in the winter. For these reasons, they do not bother to heat the conservatory meaning it is not a place people want to be.
However, a heated conservatory adds so much value to your enjoyment of the home and makes a great overflow area if you are entertaining and can be adapted in so many ways if you have guests staying for example. If you have heat, it makes an exciting sleep over option for kids, a great place for morning coffee with friends, and somewhere to sit and watch the night sky on clear nights.
One highly affordable and efficient way to heat your conservatory is with a heat pump. A heat pump is an electric cooling and heating system used to compress and decompress gas to heat or cool the space required. This mechanical device pumps heat from a cooler area into a warmer area and depending on type can extract heat from air, water or the earth. Heat pumps function like an air conditioner in the summer and an electric heater in the winter, encompassing both a heating and cooling unit in one device.
For moderate climates like Yorkshire in the UK, heat pumps are the most resourceful form of electric heating for conservatories. There are three types of heat pump: air-to-air, water source and ground source. Most conservatory heat pump devices will extract air from the outside and convert it to warm air that fills the entire conservatory space. The energy efficiency of these heat pumps is excellent and the devices are relatively economical to run. They are operated simply by means of a switch or timer meaning you can have instant heat on demand.
We have a selection of heat pumps to suit all conservatories.
It is important to choose the right one for the size and type of your conservatory and we can make sure you end up with a product that will give you endless years of satisfaction and enjoyment.
Today’s heat pumps at 0 Degrees Celsius outside return 3kw of heat for every 1 kW of electricity fed into them making them perfect for the average home conservatory.
They are simple to install and will transform how you use your conservatory. Heat pumps are even more efficient in temperate climates like the UK as milder temperatures in winter (especially with global warming) means less electricity is required to heat the incoming air.
In any home, it is always convenient to have a stand-alone source of heating and in an emergency perhaps when the boiler has broken down, you can at least sit in your conservatory in the warmth while waiting on a repair. Best of all we can install heat pumps for you with minimum fuss and disruption in a matter of hours with a guaranteed job done by our accredited engineers. Do not leave your conservatory to freeze this winter, enjoy having extra space at Christmas time and all year round with a heat pump. –Contact us here at Sub Zero Climate Control, serving Yorkshire and the surrounding areas.
