Commercial Heat Pump Installation

Control every aspect of your business

We at Heat Different, understand that reducing your fossil-fuel usage and overall CO2 emissions is at the height of today’s business goals. By introducing a high flow temperature Air Source or Ground Source heat pump to your business, you can not only reduce both of those, but save money in the long run to use elsewhere in your business.

Space Heating

Commercial heat pumps operate by extracting heat from the ambient air or ground. This low-grade heat is then compressed to raise its temperature, making it suitable for heating indoor spaces. The heated refrigerant transfers its warmth to the building’s space heating system, such as radiators or underfloor heating, effectively warming the environment. This process is highly efficient, offering significant energy savings compared to traditional heating systems.


In commercial cooling applications, heat pumps function by reversing the refrigeration cycle used for heating. They absorb heat from the indoor environment, transferring it to the refrigerant. The compressor then increases the pressure and temperature of the refrigerant, and it is expelled outdoors. As the refrigerant releases this heat, the indoor environment cools down. This process allows for effective temperature regulation in commercial spaces while consuming less energy compared to conventional air conditioning systems.

Process Heating

Commercial heat pumps can be used in process heating to increase the temperature of fluids used in various industrial applications. These heat pumps can harness low-grade heat from the air, ground or industrial process and use compression to raise the temperature. The heated medium is then circulated into the industrial process, where it transfers its thermal energy efficiently. This method of process heating offers substantial energy savings and reduced carbon emissions compared to traditional heating methods, making it an environmentally friendly solution for your business.

Hot Water Production

Heat pumps can play a key role in your business’ hot water production by extracting heat from surrounding renewable energy sources and transferring it to water for various uses. These commercial heat pumps utilise their refrigeration cycle to absorb heat from the surroundings or waste heat and increase its temperature. The heated refrigerant then transfers its thermal energy to a water storage tank, heating the water for any commercial use. This process is highly efficient and cost-effective, offering significant savings on energy bills for businesses.

Waste Heat Recovery

Commercial heat pumps are ideal in waste heat recovery applications as they capture and utilise excess heat generated from your industrial processes. These styles of heat pumps extract the waste heat and upgrade its temperature through the heat pump’s compression and expansion processes. The recovered heat is then redirected for space heating, water heating or process heating, effectively reducing energy wastage and improving overall system efficiency. Waste heat recovery with heat pumps offers a sustainable solution for utilising excess thermal energy, contributing to both cost savings and environmental conservation efforts in your business.

Reduce your use of fossil fuels and CO2 Emissions by up to 50%

As a renewable heating alternative, when you switch your business’ heating to a heat pump you will save money on your energy bills, reduce your reliance on fossil fuels and cut your carbon footprint by up to 50%.

Invest in your business’ future by making the switch to heat pumps and utilise the money saved from reduced bills in other aspects of your business.

What are the Benefits of Heat Pumps in Commercial Properties?

There are many benefits to installing an ground or air source heat pump in a commercial property, but our top points are as follows:

High Flow Temperature

The high flow temperature capability offers the advantage of effectively heating spaces even in colder climates or during extreme weather conditions. This feature makes them suitable for applications where maintaining a consistently warm indoor environment is essential, such as in offices, schools, leisure centers or factories.


Heat pumps contribute to environmental sustainability by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and decreasing reliance on non-renewable energy sources. They offer a greener alternative to conventional heating and cooling systems, helping businesses lower their carbon footprint and meet sustainability goals.


Heat pumps are highly energy-efficient systems that can significantly reduce utility costs compared to traditional heating and cooling systems as they can use waste heat from industrial processes to supply free energy to the heat pump. They also utilise renewable energy sources such as air, water, or geothermal heat, minimising reliance on fossil fuels and lowering carbon emissions.


Modern heat pumps are built to withstand rigorous use and offer long-term reliability. With proper maintenance and regular servicing, these systems can have a lifespan of 15-20 years or more, providing consistent comfort and performance for businesses while minimising downtime and repair costs.
