Cold Climate Heat Pumps: Technology, Performance & Future Developments



Are you tired of skyrocketing energy bills and inadequate heating during those harsh winter months? 

Look no further, as this story explores the world of cold climate heat pumps, a game-changing technology that promises to keep you warm while maintaining energy efficiency.

Energy Efficiency & Performance in Low Temperatures

Ductless cold-climate heat pumps must have a Heating Seasonal Performance Factor (HSPF2) of at least 8.5 and a Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (SEER2) of at least 15.2.

Comparing Conventional Heat Pumps to Cold-Climate Heat Pumps

While conventional and cold-climate heat pumps can provide home energy-efficient heating solutions, cold-climate heat pumps are specifically designed to excel in low temperatures. 

The Vapor Compression Cycle and Refrigerant in Heat Pumps

The vapor compression cycle plays a vital role in the functioning of heat pumps. In this cycle, a refrigerant fluid circulates through a closed circuit. 

The Role of the Compressor and Refrigerant in Heat Transfer

The compressor serves as the powerhouse of the vapor compression cycle, providing the mechanical work needed to move the refrigerant between the indoor and outdoor units.
