HEAT PUMP

Heat Pump

If you are exploring options for heating and cooling your home or reducing your energy bills, you may want to consider a heat pump system. Heat pumps are a proven and reliable technology in our country that can provide year-round comfort control for your home by providing heat in the winter, cooling in the summer, and in some cases, heating hot water for your home.

A heat pump is an electrically powered system based on the principle of transporting heat energy from one environment to another. When the necessary conditions are met, high amounts of energy can be used at low costs.

For most people, heat pump is a new term. However, devices such as refrigerators, air conditioners and deep freezers, which are the products of the same logic as the working principle of the heat pump, are used in our homes. Since the working logic of these devices is based on the principle of transporting heat, these devices can be grouped under the heading of heat pump. It is an inevitable result that the heat pump will become widespread in our country in the near future.

Heat and Cool Your Home with Free Outside Air
With ENGE ENERGY's air source heat pump, you can easily keep your home or workplace warm during the winter months and also provide hot water from all fountains all year round.

By using the energy from the outside air, you can reduce all your energy bills in an environmentally friendly way while at the same time creating the perfect level of comfort for your home or workplace. You can also reduce your carbon footprint.

Heat pumps can be an excellent choice for a variety of applications and for both new homes and retrofits of existing heating and cooling systems. It is also an option when replacing existing air conditioning systems, as the incremental cost of switching from a cooling-only system to a heat pump is often quite low.

An air-source heat pump can provide efficient heating and cool for your home. When installed correctly, an air source heat pump can provide a home with one and a half to three times more heat energy than the electrical energy it consumes. This is possible because a heat pump moves heat rather than converting it from fuel as combustion heating systems do.

Air source heat pumps have been used for many years in almost all regions of our country, but until recently, they were not used in regions with prolonged freezing temperatures. In recent years, however, air source heat pump technology has evolved and now offers a legitimate space heating alternative in colder areas.

The heat pump draws heat from the outside air during the heating season and rejects the outside heat during the summer cooling season. It may be surprising to know that even when outdoor temperatures are cold, there is still a large amount of energy that can be drawn and delivered to the building. For example, the heat content of air at -18°C is equal to 85% of the heat found at 21°C. This allows the heat pump to provide sufficient heating even in colder weather conditions.

Heat Pump Basic Concepts

A heat pump is an electrically powered device that draws heat from a low-temperature location (a source) and transfers it to a higher temperature location (a sink).

Heat naturally flows from higher-temperature places to lower-temperature places (for example, in winter the heat inside the building is lost to the outside). A heat pump uses additional electrical energy to counter the natural flow of heat and pumps energy from a colder place to a warmer place.

So how does a heat pump to heat or cool your home? As energy is drawn from a source, the temperature of the source decreases. If the house is used as the source, the thermal energy will be removed and this area will be cooled. This is how a heat pump works in cooling mode and is the same principle used by air conditioners and refrigerators. Similarly, as energy is added to a sink, its temperature increases. If the house is used as a sink, thermal energy will be added by heating the space. A heat pump is completely reversible, meaning it can both heat and cool your home and provide year-round comfort.

How Does an Air Source Heat Pump Work?

An air source heat pump works like a reverse refrigerator to heat your home. Outside air is blown over a network of tubes filled with a refrigerant. This heats the refrigerant and changes from liquid to gas. This gas then passes through a compressor which increases the pressure. Compression also adds more heat – similar to how the air hose heats up when you fill the air pressure in your tires. These compressed, hot gases now pass into a heat exchanger surrounded by cold air or water. The cooler transfers its heat to this cold air or water, allowing it to warm up. And this is circulated around your house to provide warmth. Meanwhile, the coolant condenses back into a cold liquid and restarts the cycle!

Heat Pump Operation

The cooling system of a heat pump consists of a compressor and two coils made of copper tubing (one inside and one outside) surrounded by aluminum fins to aid heat transfer. In heating mode, the liquid refrigerant in the outer coils takes heat from the air and evaporates into a gas. The inner coils release heat from the heatsink as it condenses back into the liquid. A check valve located next to the compressor can defrost the outer coils in winter as well as divert the refrigerant flow for cooling.

The efficiency and performance of today's air-source heat pumps is the result of technical advances such as:

  • Thermostatic expansion valves for finer control of the refrigerant flow to the indoor coil
  • Variable speed blowers that are more efficient and can compensate for some of the negative effects of constricted ducts, dirty filters and dirty coils
  • Improved coil design
  • Improved electric motor and two-speed compressor designs
  • The grooved copper tube inside to increase surface area.

What are the Benefits of the Heat Pump to the User?

* The Heat Pump is the system with the lowest energy consumption, service and maintenance costs.
* Users can independently heat and cool as much as they want. In addition, each user pays as much energy as they use.
* The most suitable ceiling or floor type heat pump device can be selected for the layout and interior decoration of the space.
* After one device is put into service, the others can continue to work.
* Since there is no combustion in its structure, it does not have risks such as explosion, fire and poisoning.
* Does not require additional equipment such as gas line, gas meter and chimney system.
* It has no odor or smoke.
* Each heat pump can be controlled by a remote controller or thermostat connected to the building automation system.
