The heat pump can save up to € 1,086 per year in heating

According to a recent study of IDEA, the heating is responsible for 47% of energy consumption of Spanish households, followed by appliances and hot water. In this scenario, the heat pump is emerging as an alternative to traditional heating oil and gas, providing greater energy savings and consequently, greater cost savings by year end.

According to company data Daikin, a leader in climate control solutions, the heat pump can save up to 1,086 euros a year on heating in an average household. This average was obtained from a comparison made between spending on kw / h of heat pump (namely Daikin Altherma system) compared to other conventional heating systems (boilers, gas, diesel and electric) to an average housing 100m2 located in Madrid.

Specifically, taking this reference, the use of a heating system based on heat pump (Daikin Altherma) is € 392  / year compared to the € 696 / year of natural gas heating, the € 1,241 / year of heating oil and € 1,478 euros a year on average for electric heat. As such, with the heat pump can be achieved savings in heating a 44% relative to natural gas of 68% compared to the oil boiler and 73% compared to electric heating.

This is possible because the HVAC Heat Pump can save up to 30% of energy, thanks to its high performance in relation to other traditional heating systems. Similarly, the use of new generation refrigerants that can work in colder environments, as is the case of R410A, and the incorporation of the inverter technology, have helped to increase the performance of these systems.

Furthermore, it should be emphasized that the heat generated by the heat pump is considered aerothermal, renewable energy and totally free from the outside air. The heat pump converts this energy into useful heat to achieve a comfortable temperature in the home, even on the coldest days of winter. All this, with the advantage of being a versatile system, as well as heating, cooling provided to heat the home at a suitable temperature during the hottest months.

Depending on the model and conditions, a heat pump generates about 3 kWh of useful heat for every kWh of electricity you use. This means that about two thirds of the heat needed to warm the building is free. Similarly, it is estimated that a heat pump heating with an efficiency of up to five times higher than that of a traditional heating system based on fossil fuels or electricity, even with really low temperatures (-25 ° C outdoor temperature). And all without direct emissions of CO2 into the atmosphere.

Finally, note that the heat pump is very easy to integrate with other forms of renewable energy such as solar thermal. Thus, it uses the sun's free energy to transfer heat (using a high-efficiency collectors transform solar radiation into heat shortwave) to the hot water tank, using this energy and thereby maximizing the efficiency Energy Heat Pump.

Thus, the savings, both financial and in CO2 emissions to the atmosphere, soar, making it a highly efficient system.
