The goal of net zero emissions is a global movement and the built environment has a huge role to play. Buildings contribute about a quarter of the country’s total emissions and, compared to other industries, they provide the most attractive opportunities to drive down this number. Emissions from heavy industries ...

Multifunction 4 pipe Heat Pumps are designed to optimise performance and energy efficiency through the use of additional heat exchangers and intelligent control systems. Multifunctional heat pumps can operate in cooling only, heating only or in combined mode with any combination of cooling and heating. During combined mode, the 4 ...
Heat pumps can be classified based on parameters like heat source and system configuration. Among the various types of heat pumps available in the market today, however, the two major types that are mainly used for heating of building interiors and domestic hot water in Australia are Air-source Heat Pumps ...
CO2 heat pumps are rapidly becoming available in a wide variety of configurations and from a wide range of suppliers. In this final article, we use the Revere™ CO2 heat pumps available from Automatic Heating to demonstrate the key performance features of CO2 heat pumps. CO2 Heat Pump ...
The story of heat pumps, from early refrigeration experiments in the 1700s to modern energy-efficient solutions, is a remarkable journey of innovation and improvement. Let’s delve into this fascinating history. The history of heat pump, and refrigeration in general, goes back a long way and have been studied since the ...
The evolving refrigerant market reflects our growing environmental consciousness. From ozone-damaging CFCs and HCFCs to global-warming contributing HFCs, the quest for sustainable options continues. This article delves into this significant journey towards environmental responsibility. The refrigerant market has been subject to significant changes over the past 40 years because of ...
Heat pumps redefine energy efficiency. They harness power not just to generate heat, but to move it, achieving an output that remarkably surpasses the input energy. Let’s delve deeper into this game-changing concept. Normally when we think of efficiency, we think of a percentage, i.e. of the energy we put ...
An Introduction to Heat Pumps A heat pump is a device that is primarily used to transfer heat from a lower ambient temperature into a higher temperature system. Its function is, in essence, pumping heat from one place to another, that is why it is called a ‘heat pump’. This ...
Commercial Heat Pumps for Hot Water and Heating Hot Water Heat Pumps provide a highly efficient means of heating hot water for many commercial and industrial applications. Achieving an average COP of 4.2 means that the energy efficiency of Heat Pumps is over 4 times that of conventional water heaters. Being ...
