Gas is the most common fuel for pumps absorption, so they are also called gas heat pumps.Also on the market have absorption chillers that work on the same principle.
to provide heating or cooling, heat pumps for residential use cycle of absorption of aqueous ammonia.As in a standard heat pump, the cooling element (in this case, ammonia) condensed on the coil of a spiral and is released from the heat;Thereafter, the pressure is reduced and the cooling element absorbs heat and evaporates.
If this pump absorbs heat inside your home, it provides cooling and vice versa - releasing heat in the room, he heats it.The vaporized ammonia is dissolved in water, and then pump it back vaporizes and condenses, starting the cycle again.
main innovation is to transfer the absorbed heat technology, which increases system efficiency by returning the energy released during the dissolution of the ammonia in the water.Among other innovations can be called high-performance division of fumes, different intensity of th
It makes sense to use absorption chillers and heat pumps in houses that are not electricity, but they also have the added advantage that they can work with almost any source of heat.
can be used solar, geothermal hot springs, or any other kind of heat.It is also possible to use the system zones in which different parts of the house maintained at different temperatures.
Efficiency chillers and heat pumps that use the energy of the air is determined by their coefficient of performance.For efficient heating looking coefficient of 1.2 or more, for efficient cooling - 0.7 or more.
