The space heating heat pump is a heating central air-conditioning system composed of rock and soil, stratum soil, groundwater or surface water as low-temperature heat sources, and composed of water-ground source heat pump units, geothermal energy exchange systems, and systems in buildings. According to the different forms of geothermal energy exchange systems, space heating heat pump systems are divided into buried pipe ground source heat pump systems, groundwater ground source heat pump systems, and surface water ground source heat pump systems.

What is central air conditioning?

The central air-conditioning system is composed of one or more cold and heat source systems and multiple air-conditioning systems. It uses the principle of liquid vaporization and refrigeration to provide the air-conditioning system with the required cooling capacity to offset the heat load of the indoor environment; the heating system is the air conditioning system provides the required heat to offset the cooling and heating load of the indoor environment.

What are the main differences between space heating heat pumps and central air conditioning?

(1) Refrigeration method

The space heating heat pump mainly exchanges heat from the soil through the buried pipe, and the central air conditioner only extracts heat from the outdoor air through the fan motor.

(2) Functionally

Central air conditioning is generally only suitable for refrigeration, while space heating heat pumps have the functions of heating, air conditioning, and hot water, which truly achieves the effect of one machine and three functions. Therefore, the space heating heat pump can be used in a wide range of places, such as schools, hospitals, office buildings, and villas.

(3) Energy efficiency ratio

Space heating heat pumps are much more efficient than central air conditioners, and the heat exchange environment is relatively stable. Generally speaking, the efficiency of the space heating heat pump is about 30-50 higher than that of the ordinary central air conditioner, and the operating cost is also about 35% lower than that of the central air conditioner.

(4) Service life

Generally speaking, space heating heat pumps can generally reach more than 15 years without major obstacles, while ordinary central air-conditioning is basically about 10 years.


What are the advantages of space heating heat pumps?

(1) To be environmentally friendly

Because the space heating heat pump absorbs heat from the soil through buried pipes and uses a water circulation system air conditioner, it will not cause refrigerant leakage, nor will it cause environmental pollution.

(2) More comfortable

The windblown by the space heating heat pump using water as the medium is more comfortable, and the elderly and children at home are not likely to catch colds or get air-conditioning diseases.

(3) No fear of extreme weather

In extreme weather conditions with a high temperature above 40°C in summer and a low temperature below -5°C in winter, the space heating heat pump system can operate normally because it relies on underground heat exchange and is not affected by the ambient temperature.


It is the responsibility of each manufacturer to produce space heating heat pumps that meet the standards, to ensure the healthy development of the space heating heat pumps market. The en.micoe company conducts many tests on space heating heat pumps before they leave the factory, and the quality qualification rate is guaranteed.
