Energy from air, earth and water

Heat pumps make highly efficient use of energy that already exists in the air, soil or groundwater and employ it to heat water. You can then heat your building at no additional cost, fully free of any emissions. The installation of heat pumps is particularly suitable for supplying large wall radiators or underfloor heating pipes with warm water. Moreover, state funding is available for the installation of heat pumps.

S.A.T. advises you on what heat pumps you can efficiently employ and, for instance, how you can reduce your energy costs by up to two thirds by combining a heat pump with a solar-thermal system . We take care of the planning, installation and ongoing maintenance of your heat pump.

How air, earth and water can be used for heating
Heat pumps use a carrier fluid to extract the heat from the ambient air, the soil, or  the groundwater. This heat is then used for heating up water.

Ground-source heat pumps use geothermal collectors or geothermic soil drillings to exract energy from the soil which is then used to heat up water. Rain later reintroduces the extracted amount of energy back into the soil. Air-heat pumps use air from the outside as well as the air inside rooms as energy source to produce 35° warm water for the heating. The system extracts the energy by cooling down the outside air or exhaust air from rooms.
