Air & Ground Source Heat Pumps


Both air and ground source heat pumps evssentially work on similar principles: Both systems expose chemical refridgerant though a coil of copper pipe to either air or ground heat. This energy absorbtion causes the refrigerant to boil. This fluid in then compressed making it hotter. A heat exchanger then transfers that heat to a water median (normally) which is used for space and bathing water systems.
