Heat pumps for new buildings

Choosing a heat pump in a new building is a decision in favor of a particularly climate-friendly heating system. Heat pumps easily meet the requirements of the GEG and heat very energy-efficiently and cost-effectively. Depending on the annual performance figure, they generate three to five kilowatt-hours of heat from one kilowatt-hour of electricity. At the same time, they actively protect the climate by heating predominantly with environmental heat and only a small amount of electricity. The environmental heat from air, water, or the ground is freely available and unlimited. In contrast to conventional heating systems, the heat pump also offers a decisive advantage in summer, because it can also cool the house pleasantly on hot summer days. In new buildings, underfloor heating is installed for the most part. Here, the heat pump is the ideal partner to heat the house as energy-efficiently as possible.

a heating system with many advantages

The advantages at one glance

  • The heat pump is a particularly climate-friendly alternative to oil or gas heating without direct Co2 emissions.
  • Through the use of renewable energy, there is no dependence on rising prices of fossil fuels.
  • The heat pump is the only heating system that can not only heat, but also cool.
  • The heat pump works energy-efficiently and cost-effectively.
  • High subsidies are possible if you choose a climate-friendly heating system.
  • The heat pump is a modern heating system that increases the property value in the long term.
  • Heat pumps are very space efficient and take up minimal space in the home or backyard.

using renewable energies even more efficiently

Heat pumps with photovoltaics

The heat pump is already considered a particularly cost-effective alternative to oil and gas heating. Property owners can save even more by combining a photovoltaic system and heat pump. While the cost of raw materials continues to rise, owners of the duo make themselves independent of electricity providers and their prices.

Operating principle of a heat pump

Heat pumps work based on the same principle as an old-fashioned refrigerator. The difference is that the heat pump extracts the heat from the outside and transfers it into the house as heating energy, while the refrigerator extracts the heat from its inside and transfers it to the outside. In doing so, the heat pump extracts its energy from the environment and requires only a small amount of electricity.
