The combination of solar energy system and heat pump allows maximum use to be made of direct solar radiation and of the solar heat stored in the ground. A Schüco HPSol brine/water heat pump with special Schüco low-temperature collectors reduces heating costs by approx. 75% compared with conventional oil or gas systems. Feeding solar yields into the geothermal probes guarantees permanently high system efficiency.
If the area in which you live is suitable for drilling a bore hole (approx. 80% of the surface area in Germany), then no other heating system can offer lower operating costs under the same conditions.
A Schüco HPSol heat pump provides heat all year round
A brine/water heat pump uses heat that is stored in the ground. The temperature in the ground is usually between 6 ºC and 12 ºC. This temperature level is more than sufficient for a Schüco HPSol.
