As the national grid incorporates a growing percentage of renewables into its delivery, heat pumps are leading decarbonisation efforts in the built environment. In a sector that accounts for approximately 40% of total UK carbon emissions, heat pumps offer the potential for carbon neutral heating and cooling.
Long-term benefits include improved safety when compared to gas and oil, less maintenance and improved longevity of valuable infrastructure. Complex temperature controls and zoning options mean that commercial sites can be more energy efficient, and buildings are future proofed as the balance tips towards electricity, away from fossil fuels.
For facilities managers and those responsible for key building services, times of change are also times of risk. Effective preparation, planning and monitoring will ensure that low-carbon transitions are successful, performance is proven and upgrades are justified.
Initial assessment: The first step in a heat upgrade is an energy audit and assessment of your current heating system:
Selecting the right heat pump: Based on your assessment, choose the appropriate type of heat pump:
Site preparation: Installing a heat pump may require some modifications to your building:
Pipework performance: Where possible, we advocate retaining as much of the existing pipework as possible:
Monitoring: Our BG50i Intelligent Water Treatment and Monitoring package is ideal for ensuring a successful transition to low-carbon heating. Using Hevasure’s leading water monitoring technology, we provide M&E contractors and building managers with cumulative data that paints a true and accurate picture of water system conditions at any time:
We recommend monitoring corrosion indices for at least a year following HVAC upgrades to align with seasonal commissioning – a process essential to proving the performance of the new heat pump system.
Guardian Water Treatment can support facilities managers through the retrofit process, ensuring a smooth and cost-effective transition to a greener future.
