Cutting Energy Costs With Sustainable Heating Solutions

As the drive towards decarbonisation and environmentally friendly solutions to heating and cooling accelerate, Johnson Controls is at the forefront of the technological revolution to design, manufacture, install, and service ultra-energy efficient HVAC products such as water and air source heating pumps.

Our range of easy-to-install water and air source heating pumps deliver a renewable solution to heating and cooling applications that reduce energy bills and provide you with a low carbon footprint solution.

Integrating air source or water source heating into your HVAC system is a great solution for most commercial buildings, as the installation is quick and easy, and you don’t need much space to mount your air source heating unit outside.

Get the full breakdown of how air source heating systems work and how they can reduce your heating overheads in our latest article.

Combining this renewable energy source with our proven environment controls, Johnson Controls can maintain your building at an optimum temperature whilst satisfying your net zero commitments.

How does a Heat Pump work?

A heat pump extracts heat from the outside air, or local water sources, even at low temperatures, and converts it into energy that you can use within your building's heating or cooling system.

This low-cost, low-impact energy can maintain indoor temperatures at ideal conditions, provide hot water, and help your business meet its decarbonisation goals.

Different Types of Heat Pump

Johnson Controls offer a range of heat pump solutions, each designed to suit specific applications. The different types of heat pumps available include:

Commercial air source heat pumps (ASHPs) efficiently heat and cool large buildings by extracting heat from the outdoor air using an evaporator coil. The heat is then amplified through compression before being released indoors, creating a comfortable environment. ASHPs are a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution for commercial heating and cooling needs.

Our water source heat pumps work by extracting heat from local water sources such as lakes or wells, even at low temperatures. This heat is and converted into energy that can be used within your building’s heating or cooling system. This low-cost, low-impact energy can maintain indoor temperatures, provide hot water, and help you meet decarbonisation goals.

Water source heat pumps are only a viable source of energy if your business premises are near a useable water source, so while they’re an excellent choice, they won’t be suitable for all applications.

Please note that we do not currently install heat pumps for small domestic buildings.

Reclaiming Waste Hot Air from Chillers

Waste heat is often released into the atmosphere by chilling air for internal building cooling.

Air source heat pumps harness heat recovery technologies to convert waste hot air into an energy source. Our solutions can effectively recycle it to power other elements of your HVAC system, such as hot water. This can significantly increase your air source heating system efficiency and reduce energy consumption.

What are the key benefits of using a Heat Pump from Johnson Controls?

Low Energy Usage
Up to 70% of the energy used by an air source heating pump is extracted from the outside air, significantly reducing the need for increasingly expensive electricity.
Efficient Heating
When compared to traditional gas boilers powered by fossil fuel, Heat Pumps can be up to 500% more efficient, which can radically reduce energy costs.
Reduced Carbon Footprint
As most of the energy used to generate heat through a Heat Pump is renewable, installing Heat Pumps can significantly contribute to your organisation’s decarbonisation targets.
Friendly to the Local Environment
Because Heat Pumps do not burn oil, gas, LPG or biomass, or generate fumes of any kind, the air quality in the local area will not be affected in any way. This clean, renewable energy source can be vital when installed in buildings such as schools.
