For many years farmers have been relying just on oil, LPG or electric resistance elements to provide heating within the farming industry. Today's increasing energy costs worldwide are motivating different agricultural businesses to look for a low cost more energy efficient alternative to use.
There are many applications in the agrarian industry that has benefited from the use of a water source, ground source or air source heat pump and there are many case studies that have confirmed this. For example there is a pig farmer that had an oil fired heating system to heat the pads used in his pig rearing unit. It was the increasing cost of oil that motivated him to look for an alternative. Finally after installing a heat pump system it was proved that he is now achieving savings over 40% in energy savings. We also have a dairy farm using an air source heat pump for chilling the milk produced, with the byproduct they are providing free hot water for their dairy. Another innovative example of their use in agriculture is their capability to provide heating for the poultry sheds during the winter and cooling during the summer.
Looking at another way of applying this technology in the farming industry is through the heat pump assisted drying in agriculture. With this type of system you can provide a controllable drying environment with temperature and humidity to achieve better quality products with the significantly less consumption of energy over other drying methods.
