It is a known fact that heat energy travels from a warmer place to a cooler place but with the invention of heat pumps, the reverse has been made possible. The heat is absorbed from a cooler place and then released into a warmer one says the experts in heating and cooling systems Green Energy Solutions. This company is dedicated to the cause of making the world a greener place and works relentlessly towards it through its energy-efficient products and services.
It is a vapor-compression refrigeration device usually when considering a heat pump within a heating, ventilation, or air condition system. The heating energy in this comes from an external source making the output performance much more than the traditional electrical resistance heaters, where the heat is produced only from the input electrical energy.
Green Energy Solutions’ reversible heat pumps are a brilliant replacement for traditional heat pumps. These are, as the name suggests capable of performance in either direction and provide both heating and cooling as per requirement. This is made possible with the integration of a reversible valve that reverses the flow of the refrigerant.
How does it work?
While in the heating mode the outdoor coil becomes an evaporator, and the indoor coil becomes its condenser. The thermal energy is carried from the outdoor coil to the indoors by the refrigerant. This is then compressed and the indoor air is warmed with the help of an air handler.
Alternatively, the thermal energy can be transferred to water, and then with the help of underfloor heating or radiators, the entire building can be heated.
In the cooling mode, the process remains the same except that the outdoor one now becomes the condenser while the indoor coil is the evaporator. The principle that makes this work is when the physical properties of a refrigerant are exploited by mechanical heat pumps. On the side where the refrigerant has to be warmed, the pump compresses it and the pressure is released on the other side whether the air is absorbed.
How is the heat transferred?
The heat is transported via a heat pump using some flowing liquid or gas. For a small amount of heat to be transferred a refrigerant can be employed, however, if the quantity of heat to be transported is large, water is the best option.
What are the heat sources for various heat pumps?
An air-source heat pump is used for smaller installations while a water-source heat pump is deployed for large-scale installations where the amount of heat to be handled is greater. Boilers or other solar energy equipment can be used to heat the water when required; on the other hand, when there is a need to cool the water a cooling tower can be put to use, informs Green Energy Solutions.
Also known as a ground source heat pump, a geothermal heat pump use underground heat exchangers as its source and water as its medium of transport. These are more reliable as the temperature underground remains nearly constant throughout the year.
The heat pumps built by the GES are truly exceptional and can be used in various places such as HVAC systems, water heating, refrigerants, district heating, and many more. These heat pumps are great examples of environment-friendly technological equipment.
