Troubleshooting Ecotec Heat Pumps Ltd
To fully exploit the self-replenishing ‘renewable-energy’ from the air and provide a low-carbon
emission means of energy efficiency.
To maintain the buildings internal temperature requirements and, where applicable, provide
‘domestic’ hot water.
To understand the technology: air-source heat pump systems consist of just two parts: the heat pump
assembly, and the heating-delivery system. The heat pump is basically a system of heat exchangers
near the building lifting low-temperature heat from the ambient air and uplifting it to high, useful
temperatures. A brine-mix (usually a mixture of water and antifreeze) circulates through the plate
exchangers to absorb low-temperature heat from the air when heating a building or the rejection of
heat harmlessly back to the air when cooling a building.
To engage a specialist heat pump contractor to ensure the supply of major components, the
installation, testing, commissioning, and balancing of an air-source heat pump system.
