The future of the heat pump

Heating is a major household expense. Each year, a household spends on average €1500 on energy, which represents a significant part of its income. Investing in a heating system that is economical can therefore be a useful expense, even if it seems heavy to bear at first glance.

There are some energy production techniques that are very economical in the long term. One example is the heat pump, which is available in several models, capable of extracting the free energy contained in an external environment.

How the heat pump works

There are three main types of heat pumps on the market. The most common is the aerothermal (or air-to-water heat pump). It is a heat pump (or heat pump) that will draw energy from the ambient air? Even if the outside temperatures are cold, there are always calories that are just waiting to be used free of charge to heat a house. However, this type of heat pump is still the least efficient because its performance is itinerant to the outside climate. The two other types of heat pump that can be installed are the geothermal heat pump and the aquothermal heat pump. They exploit the calories contained in the ground and in the water table respectively. These two types of heat pumps are much more efficient than the previous one because they do not depend on the climate, as the temperature in the ground remains constant whatever the time of year. The price of the heat pump (to be discovered here) is higher, however, because drilling work has to be carried out.

Getting help from the state

At the moment, energy savings are a major issue for the French government, which is why it offers numerous subsidies for everything that is attractive to energy savings. This is true for insulation work, but also for investments in economical and environmentally friendly heating equipment such as solar panels or heat pumps.
