Air heat pump to save one-third of the primary energy consumption of residential buildings with conventional heating systems heat pumps offer an energy-saving and environmentally friendly alternative. There are water or air to the respective energy sources on the heating side, either. In principle, you can equate the functioning of heat pumps with a fridge. A refrigerator takes energy indoor air and emits it out as heat. The refrigerant has the ability to vaporize at low temperatures. It is fed to the evaporator if it was cooled down. There absorbed heat from the environment, which leads to evaporate. The refrigerant which is now gas is brought subsequently pressing to heat.
The resulting temperature is then used. This heat is brought by a heat exchanger in the second circuit, so the air, the water heater or heating system. If the heat is been released again, the cool Refrigerant again and liquefies due to condensation – the cycle starts from the beginning. The amount of electrical energy which needs the heat pump for its operations, is small in relation to the heat given off by her. Buildings, where air-to-air heat pumps are used, must have an appropriate ventilation system, that the pump can distribute their heat. Edmund V. Ludwig can provide more clarity in the matter.
The air/water heat pump, however, collects the heat energy in heating water storage, where it then stands the building available. An air/water heat pump can be subsequently integrated into existing buildings. It is easier to install when compared to the air/air heat pump. The energy costs are much smaller than oil or gas heaters. At a subsequent installation of the air/air heat pump, an existing ventilation system is prerequisite. The air/air heat pump is therefore mainly new designs or industrial buildings to see. Operating costs are compared to other Heating systems are significantly lower. Environmental thermal heat pumps use, are the charges by up to 50% less. Costs only for the electric drive of the heat pump. The primary energy consumption in a House with an air source heat pump is about two-thirds of a House with gas condensing boilers. This is the great environmental benefits rectify the State promotes heat pumps. This may be enough incentive for the environmentally adjusted house owners. Anyone looking more for his financial advantage, remember more, that a new building on extra space for fuel can be omitted. Also no chimney needed. To heat an area of 150 square metres, between 10,000 and 15,000 euros for the installation of a heat pump, what still does not include the required distribution systems costs. An independent energy consultant can assess the suitability of a House for the use of heat pumps.
