What is a Heat Pump?

A heat pump is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another. A heat pump is not a new technology; it has been used around the world for decades. Refrigerators and air conditioners are both common examples of this technology. Heat pumps transfer heat by circulating refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation and condensation. A compressor pumps the refrigerant between two heat exchanger coils. In one coil, the refrigerant is evaporated at low pressure and absorbs heat from its surroundings.

Complete Solutions

Joule Heat Pump systems in conjunction with Samsung are one of the world’s leading heat pump air to water suppliers. Using heat energy from ambient air, which is a free and renewable energy source, results in low-cost heating and hot water production. The Joule compact solution is built around a compact tank integrated hydro unit, with a large domestic hot water tank of either 180L or 230L. The compact and modular design makes for straightforward kitchen or utility room integration. The Joule heat pump range suit most applications, the EHS Mono heat pump system includes flexible control options and hybrid capability, whereby the system can be used in conjunction with solar and/or boiler installations. All heat pumps supplied by Joule have high performance at low temperatures, lightweight, and are compact for quick and easy installation.

Briffin Construction choose to install a smart plumb system. The Smart Plumb by Joule is the most innovative pre-plumbed solution for heat pump systems.

Pre-Plumbed Cylinders

Built on quality and performance, with one of the widest ranges of models available you can be sure there is a model to suit.

The Cyclone brand is noted for its attractive grey finish. Noticeably there is no cheap plastic used on the outer casing. Inside only the best materials are used, duplex stainless steel body, 316L grade stainless fittings and coils. For heat pump ready cylinders our coil quality sets us apart. Unlike most cheaper brands on the market Cyclone High Gain range of cylinders use high recovery smooth tube coils for optimal performance. No other coil type on the market today offers the same transfer rate as smooth stainless tube.

Joules Riva radiators

Joules Riva radiators are designed to offer a compact, attractive linear shape which provided a high thermal emission with low water content. Joule’s radiators providing characteristics for a modern dwelling with its unique slim design allows for installation in the specific areas where width would be an issue.

The Riva radiators are made from premium aluminum which compared to standard steel radiators has many advantages such as having 30% more output than steel radiators. The Riva radiators offer both horizontal and vertical radiators both lightweight and robust, excellent heat conductivity, and ideal for use with Heat Pumps.

Underfloor Heating

Joule Underfloor Heating provides effortless comfort, with energy-efficient systems that provide a more natural, ambient temperature throughout the home, and with the widest range of water-based systems in the UK, we have a solution for every project and application.

Underfloor heating can be installed within a variety of different floor constructions. The different floor constructions comprise of solid screed floors, suspended floors, and floating floors.
