HEAT PUMPS

HEAT PUMPS ARE THE FUTURE FOR AGRICULTURE

According to the Eurostat database (Eurostat, 2017), in 2014 in the European Union energy consumption by agriculture made up 2.8% of the final energy consumption.

Heat energy is the second largest energy use in the agricultural sector at approximately 7,497 GWh or 37% of total use. This varies between the different types of agriculture, however, of this just over half is for raising the temperature of protected cropping with the remainder split between drying cereals and animals.

As much of this heat is relatively low temperatures it is ideal for heat pump applications. Combining with cooling (e.g. a cold store and a greenhouse) or with interseasonal storage using ground arrays is financially attractive, offering savings that are not possible using other technologies.

THE CLADE HEAT PUMP PERFORMANCE GUARANTEE

To give our heat pumps customers complete peace of mind. Following installation, commissioning and a 6 month run-in period the actual performance will be assessed against predicted performance. If the heat pump does not meet the guaranteed performance we will refund the cost of the heat pump and remove it from site.

This should have gone to quote but would have taken much longer to resolve, so they did the work upfront and also took care of elements which was not their responsibility, great team work.”

HEAT PUMPS FAQ

Clade Engineering is able to provide heat pumps as either air, ground, or water source. The most suitable type of heat pump depends on several factors related to your property. Generally, air source heat pumps are the most popular because they have the fewest requirements to install. Any type of heat pump can provide hot water and heating to your building.

Heat pumps using CO2 refrigerant as the heat source are friendly to the environment because the CO2 they use stays contained within the appliance and does not get released into the atmosphere. Furthermore, the CO2 we use in our heat pumps has the lowest global warming potential (GWP) of 1 compared to 1000’s for other refrigerants which will all significantly reduce the carbon footprint of your building.

Clade are the industry leaders in heat pump technology. As the heat in buildings challenge became clearer, Clade began the R&D for a new range of heat pumps which would provide a solution for a growing market. The first heat pump was installed in a Co-Op store and achieved a staggering SCOP of 3.7. We have over 36 years of experience and all of our systems are designed and manufactured in the UK.

Our heat pumps meet environmental standards by using a natural refrigerant like CO2. It has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 1, which reduces both cost and emissions.

Clade offers a full start to finish heat pumps solution. Our team of engineers design your system, manufacture and supply your heat pumps from our product range, our installation team ensures your heat pump is fully functional and our after sales support team provides ongoing maintenance. You can pick and choose as many or as few of our services to suit your requirements.

We ensure that your heat pump system continues to function. Our heat pumps can generate heat from 50kW to multi mega-watt, with a maximum water temperature of over 80 degrees Celsius and a minimum external air temperature of -20 degrees Celsius. Each of our heat pumps also comes with total cooling recovery to ensure a high quality of continued functionality.
