Geothermal Heat Pumps
Ground Source Heat Pumps use a buried ground loop which extracts heat from the ground and uses it to heat your home. The system does not require any external fuel and is designed to heat a whole building.
Water Source Heat Pumps
Water Source Heat Pumps use an open loop collector where underground water such as from a well or pond is pumped through the heat pump. Due to the relatively high temperature of underground water the efficiency of a Water Source Heat Pump typically exceeds 500%.
Air Source Heat Pumps
Air Source Heat Pumps absorb energy from the outside air in the same way as a fridge extracts heat from inside. It can absorb heat from the air when the temperature is as low as -20°C. This requires no drilling or digging and are therefore an ideal solution for most existing houses. Air Source Heat Pumps are suitable for indoor or outdoor installation.
Underfloor Heating Systems
Rooms that contain under floor pipe are heated by warm water circulating in continuous pipe loops that are clipped to special tracking which is embedded in concrete floors. There are no joints in the pipe which increases reliability. The floors can reach a temperature of 30°C if necessary but normally 22 to 24°C surface temperature which leaves a comfortable room temperature of 21°C which can be adjusted to the users own desire.
Pool and Spa Heating
Heat Pumps are an ideal solution for swimming pool heating, providing an economic and energy efficient means of delivering constant pool water temperature throughout the year. Air Source Heat Pumps are mainly suitable due to their low installation cost and high efficiency at high ambient temperatures during the summer, the most frequent time of swimming pool use.

Heat Pump Servicing and Maintenance
Alternative Heating & Cooling is capable of servicing and maintaining most makes and models of Heat Pumps, including models no longer in production.
Solar thermal technology transforms direct and diffuse solar radiation into useful heat using a solar collector.
