A heating and ventilation business may decide to offer installation of heat pumps as one of their services. Industry considers electric heat pumps energy efficient devices that can heat and cool a building or home. Heat pumps have no emissions or byproducts, making it a green appliance.

The best heat pumps work by moving heat from one location to another location, and prices vary depending on the type of equipment offered. The two main types of heat pumps are air source heat pumps and geothermal heat pumps. Air source heat pumps draw heat from the air. Air source heat pumps have open cycle and closed cycle models, which refers to the way in which their cooling fluids circulate. Geothermal heat pumps draw heat from the ground or sometimes a body of water.

Making the most of heat pumps relies upon selecting the correct equipment for the application. Once your business selects its merchandise, you can list your products and services so that your customers can buy a heat pump online.

1. Look at the types of air source heat pumps.

2. Study the advantages of geothermal heat pumps.

3. Explore the uses of industrial heat pumps.

Consider the types of air source heat pumps

Air source heat pumps make a better choice in mild climates. Since these types of heat pumps use air as a source, they become less efficient in extreme hot or cold environments. A closed cycle air source heat pump takes heat from warm, moist air to heat water, a common application for commercial kitchens, laundries and indoor pools.

Consider high efficiency geothermal heat pumps for your customers

Geothermal heat pumps draw heat from the ground or groundwater, which stays at a more constant temperature all year round, leading to higher efficiency with no variation across seasons. Heat pumps that take heat from groundwater produce heat at a higher efficiency than those that draw heat from the soil. The customer will pay more for installation of this type of heat pump because they require wells or trenches for the pipes to carry heat exchange fluid.

Look at industrial heat pumps for specific applications

Industrial heat pumps may consist of either air source or geothermal type heat pumps. This type of equipment may consist of multiple units, split systems and customized installation.
  • Look at some key features of the best heat pumps. A two-speed saves energy and wear and tear on the system, variable speed motor save energy and help eliminate hot and cold spots. Use a scroll compressor to compress the refrigerant for more efficient functioning and quieter operation.
