Today’s homes combine the most efficient systems with the most economic ways to operate them. Penguin apply smart technology to the latest energy-saving heating & cooling systems, to help maintain an optimal indoor climate at minimal running costs.

Energy-smart Penguin

Open for business since 2008 as air-conditioning installers, Penguin soon broadened its services to embrace other energy-saving technologies. Today the company offers expertise in all aspects of home heating & cooling, advising which low-energy systems are best-suited to your home and lifestyle. For properties under construction or renovation, they work with architects, engineers and builders to design & install fully-integrated systems, with energy-efficiency the guiding principle.
The latest air-con systems can be coupled with smart devices to allow remote control via iPhone, iPad or PC for maximum convenience and efficiency. Heat pumps can be similarly controlled: conventionally used for pools, their high-efficiency today makes them ideal as a low-cost way to heat water for radiator, fan-coil or underfloor systems - with the advantage that for some applications they can be switched in reverse for cooling.
The capability to control such systems remotely via smart device is ideal for absent homeowners who wish to prepare a property for their return. For example, a pool heat pump can be activated 2-3 days beforehand, so that the pool is ready on arrival. Air-con systems can also warm or cool a home in advance, or be switched to dehumidify mode during damp periods in winter.
But there’s no need for smart control when it comes to solar systems. Whether thermal solar for free domestic hot water, or photovoltaic (PV) to generate electricity, these reliable systems can be left to function by themselves in Algarve’s year-round sunshine (although PV output can be monitored by smart device).
Penguin are experts in the applications and installation of all such systems. With English, Portuguese and French-speaking staff, the business serves a core-market of foreign property owners and expat residents who seek low-energy solutions to high-comfort demands. So be smart – think Penguin!
