Heat pumps

Significant increases in energy costs have negatively impacted the profitability of companies with high heat and electricity consumption (heating and cooling), such as hotels, hospitals, sports centres and production industries.

The installation of high efficiency (EER> 3) reversible heat pumps allows a more efficient production of hot and cold air by using heat already present in the environment (e.g. air, water or ground), leading to a 50% (gas boiler) to 70% (oil-fired boiler) reduction in heating costs and a 40% reduction in cooling costs.

Enerqos’ proposal

  • Selection and installation of heat pump systems on the basis of a detailed analysis of the consumption and requirements of the customer
  • Financial solution customized to the specific requirements of the customer
    • Financing through Enerqos and a sharing of the savings, with a maintenance contract for a period of 3 to 5 years
    • Co-investment by Enerqos and the customer and a sharing of savings, with a maintenance contract for the heat pump system for a period of 3 to 5 years
    • Customer’s own investment with the option of a maintenance contract
  • Consulting regarding access to all possible incentives available at regional, national and European level

Benefits for the customer

  • Increase in the business competitiveness through an immediate reduction in energy costs
  • Optimization of financial resources through access to different solutions, or qualified assistance in accessing credit, with no initial outlay
  • Technological solution customized to the needs of the customer with the installation of the best heat pumps available on the market without contractual ties to suppliers
  • Optimization of the various planning and operational phases with Enerqos’ proven experience of project-management
  • Medium to long term support from trusted and highly qualified partner
  • Improvement in the customer’s ‘green’ image
