Heat pump system design – for both air source and ground source heat pumps – is incredibly simple, requiring just a few key components to deliver desirable results. Both systems make use of renewable sources of energy to provide complete heating and cooling solutions.
Heat Pump System Main Components
- Copper Tubing
- High Pressure Safety Switch
- Reversing Valve
- Defrost Control
- Protective Wire Meshing
Heat Pump as a Primary Cooling System: The heat pump is a very efficient and reliable cooling system and can provide cooling to a building via its own operations without the need for additional cooling systems, such as CAV and VAV.
Heat Pump as a Primary Heating System: By changing the direction of the refrigerant flow, you can transform your heat pump into a heating system.
Benefits of Heat Pump Systems
- 1. Since heat pumps do not require traditional style boiler or chiller to perform both heating and cooling functions, these systems tend to cost less.
- 2. Heat pump systems are incredibly efficient, which also helps to save you more money.Heat pump efficiency is measured with two distinct ratings. While in the cooling mode, heat pumps receive a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio or SEER number. SEER is like gas mileage. The higher the gas mileage or SEER, the more efficient the automobile or system is. Most new heat pumps rate between 13.0 and 19.0 SEER. While in the heating mode, heat pumps also receive a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor or HSPF rating. Again, the higher the number, the more efficiently the system works. Most new units have ratings between 7.7 and 9.0 HSPF.
