In the context of mechanical plant and equipment, Heat Pumps take the excess heat being removed from the buildings air conditioning system and use it to heat the hot water system.
This is instead of pumping the generated heat from the building into the atmosphere and separately heating the hot water with gas burners or electrical boilers. So in effect, you are transferring heat rather than creating it.
What is clever is that it saves you money in energy so heat pumps can pay for themselves. This is now more important than ever due to energy costs plus environmental concerns associated with unnecessary carbon generation.
