Heat Pump

The heat pump is a device that extracts energy from a renewable thermal source, processes it through a thermodynamic cycle and distributes the result to your heating, cooling or DHW (Hot Water) system.

what is a heat pump

The heat pump is a device that allows the exchange of energy between two systems: collection and production. The collection or primary circuit can be defined as the system that the heat pump uses as an energy source, this also classifies heat pumps as ground or air source. The production or secondary circuit can be defined as the system to which the heat pump delivers the processed energy, which can be radiator circuits, underfloor heating, fan coil units, DHW, swimming pool or any other type of circuit.

Why choose the ECOFOREST heat pump?

  • ECONOMICAL. Ecoforest heat pumps substantially increase your savings, due to the high efficiency of the heat pump and the control strategies that automatically look for the most efficient point of the pump. Installing an Ecoforest system is simple, compact and fast, something that differs from other equipment on the market by including equipment necessary for the proper functioning of the system in the heat pump.
  • LOCAL RESOURCE. The energy produced by heat pumps comes mostly from the surrounding environment. Although they have to be connected to the grid, they do not need to be powered by any type of fuel, increasing their comfort. They also do not produce any flame or smoke and produce energy for your home with little or no visual impact.
  • MINIMUM MAINTENANCE. The technology in Ecoforest heat pumps is very similar to that in a refrigerator, which has a very long service life and does not require much maintenance.
  • MINIMUM NOISE. The technology of Ecoforest heat pumps and their insulation reduces their noise level to that of a normal appliance. With values between 33 and 46 dB in the domestic range, 53 to 72 dB in the high power range and a maximum noise of 65 dB in air source heat pumps.
  • SAFETY. It is a system where there is no combustion or fumes. The Ecoforest heat pumps continuously monitor all its parameters and in the event of an anomaly the heat pump shuts down in safe mode.
  • MINIMUM VISUAL IMPACT. In a ground source configuration, none of the installation components are visible. In an air source or hybrid configuration, only the outdoor air source unit is visible and even this can be hidden to reduce visual impact.
  • INTEGRAL CONTROL SYSTEM. The Ecoforest controller allows you to control your entire thermal installation through the heat pump screen. The setup is simple and intuitive.

 The following table compares an installation with 10kW of thermal demand. Depending on the type of equipment, fuel and performance, it can be seen that the energy consumption of the Ecoforest heat pump is the most ecological and economical solution.Comparation


The temperature of the ground is stable throughout the year, the more the depth more stable it is, and geothermal heat pumps uses this temperature as main source of energy to produce heating in winter, cooling in summer and hot water throughout the year. Using such a clean, renewable and free energy source like the one that is contained under our feet.

Ecoforest have a wide range of powers that covers from 1 kW to 600 kW incorporating variable speed Inverter compressors. The Inverter regulates the speed of the compressor and thanks to the ecoGEO control strategies it adapts to the ideal of the comfort zone, which allows to make a rational use of the energy consumed. In this way only the energy demanded by the building is provided at each moment.

The ecoGEO heat pumps allow you to substantially increase your savings, not only because of the high efficiency with which they operate on a daily, but thanks to the technology and experience of Ecoforest, these geothermal heat pumps have a simpler installation, compact and economical than other heat pumps on the market, allowing to dispense with certain components that would be necessary to install externally in a traditional heat pump.


Aerothermal heat pumps, unlike geothermal, are those capable of extracting energy from the air. At Ecoforest we have developed the ecoAIR aerothermal heat pump that produces heating in winter, cooling in summer and hot water throughout the year with exceptional performance.

The ecoAIR is a innovative product in the market aerothermal heat pumps, including a Scroll + EVI + Inverter compressor. And what this mean? The Scroll compressor allows to reduce the noise emission and increases the overall performance of the heat pump, the Inverter modulates the compressor power allowing the heat pump to adapt to the HAVC demands of the installation in real time, and the EVI allows to delivery power to keep high and with a high performance even when the external temperatures are very cold in winter and very hot in summer.

The Scroll EVI compressor, developed especially for heat pumps, is  a new compressor model that is mainly characterized by having an intermediate stage in its operating cycle, in order to maximize its operation. The modern technology EVI re-injects gas into the compressor in an efficient way, which allows to reach higher temperatures. This technology of gas injection together with Ecoforest control strategies allows to produce water at 60ºC with external temperatures of -15ºC.

In short, the EVI technology significantly improves the refrigeration cycle, which translates into higher performance throughout the year (SPF)

The energy consumption of any installation is divided intro electricity, heating and cooling, and usually the higher energy demand comes from the thermal circuits. This is why the R&D department  has developed a product that, using the potential of Ecoforest heat pumps with his Inverter technology, manages the energy storage in a more efficient way.

How it works? It is very simple. These energy managers read the balance between the energy consumed and delivered to the electricity grid at all times. With this information and knowing the demands of the home, the energy manager is able to modify the parameters of the Ecoforest heat pumps in real time to improve their performance, allow storage of heating and/or colling, and even make a balance zero between production and consumption.

The combination of Ecoforest ecoAIR and ecoGEO heat pumps with the ecoSMART range results in the most efficient installations in the world.


The Ecoforest group was founded in Vigo in 1959 at the hands of its owner and founder Jose Carlos Alonso Martínez, specializing in the heating sector. In 1993, Ecoforest became the first European manufacturer of pellet hydro stoves, bringing to the market a new, ecological and economic product.

Currently, Ecoforest is the leading company in the market with the widest range of pellet stoves and boilers. In 2012, Ecoforest decided to bet in another innovative technology and launched its first ground source heat pump to the market, being the only Spanish manufacturer of this product and the most specialized in inverter technology on the planet.

The R&D department of Ecoforest continues to innovate every day, in order to develop more advanced and more efficient products. Currently Ecoforest products can be found in more than 30 countries around the world.
