Heat pump – a tried-and-tested principle
A heat pump uses electrically operated compressors to compress energy in a refrigerant circuit and use it at a higher level. It works on the same principle as every fridge. The compressor at the back of the fridge produces cooling energy by drawing heat from the contents of the fridge and dispensing it into the ambient air in the room. As a result the kitchen is heated (often without anyone noticing) and the contents of the fridge are chilled.
The heat pump works in exactly the opposite way: The surroundings (ambient air, outside air or ground) are cooled slightly so that the house is heated to a comfortable temperature.
Heat without direct use of oil or gas
The modern heat pumps from Schüco are a high-quality replacement for conventional heating systems. Using Schüco heat pumps you can heat or cool your home with energy from the air or from the ground, thereby increasing your independence from oil and gas. Heating energy costs can be reduced by up to 75% by using a heat pump.
For houses without a central heating system, Schüco provides a hot water heat pump that heats only the drinking water.
