Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a cost-effective and ultra-efficient way to replace or enhance your existing heating system. With additional sustainable options, such as PV panels, the savings both financially and environmentally are increased. What makes a heat pump so efficient is that the output of heat produced is more than the input of electricity used.

To understand how heat pumps work, read this Tidyco blog.

Heat pumps - from Samsung, Daikin and Mitsubishi

We work with a number of the most well-known manufacturers of heat pumps. These particular units are the outdoor units, which you often see on the side of buildings. These are often air-to-air or air-to-water.


Depending on your requirements, there are a number of options available. Tidyco's Climate team are here to guide and advise.

Diagram of how a heat pump works:

  1. Air is drawn in from outside via a fan and passed through a heat exchanger. The heat from the air relative to the refrigerant running through it is higher and therefore heats the liquid past its boiling point so that it becomes a gas.
  2. The gas is then passed through a compressor. This increases the pressure and causes a rise in temperature.
  3. The heated refrigerant gas is then passed through another heat exchanger, where the heat is transferred to either air which is pumped straight into a building or the central heating system and / or hot water system.
  4. As the refrigerant loses its heat, it condenses and returns to a liquid state. As it does, it moves round the system to initial heat exchanger to begin the process again.
