Industrial applications that require hot water typically use electrical heaters or fossil-fuel based solutions.
Modern heat pumps use compressors, evaporators and condensers to heat water up to 90°C using ambient heat (> 15 C) and a small amount of electricity. Based on the source of ambient heat, they are classified into air, water or ground-source heat pumps.
A heat pump system can help save 30-60% of the energy costs of running electric heaters or diesel-fired boilers. Heat pump systems also do not produce any exhaust fumes, hence reducing the plant’s carbon footprint on the environment. In fact, if the electricity is renewable in nature, a heat pump produces zero emissions.
Energyhive helps in identifying reliable contractors who provide turnkey heat pump systems. Energyhive also works with companies that have alternative business models if capital investment is an issue.
