For climates with moderate heating and cooling needs, heat pumps offer an energy-efficient alternative to furnaces and air conditioners. Like your refrigerator, heat pumps use electricity to move heat from a cool space to a warm space, making the cool space cooler and the warm space warmer. During the heating season, heat pumps move heat from the cool outdoors into your warm house and during the cooling season, heat pumps move heat from your cool house into the warm outdoors. Because they move heat rather than generate heat, heat pumps can provide up to 4 times the amount of energy they consume.
The most common type of heat pump is the air-source heat pump, which transfers heat between your house and the outside air. If you heat with electricity, a heat pump can trim the amount of electricity you use for heating by as much as 30% to 40%. High-efficiency heat pumps also dehumidify better than standard central air conditioners, resulting in less energy usage and more cooling comfort in summer months.
Typical heat pump systems illustrations:
Buffer tanks are often employed within HVAC systems to provide additional system fluid volume in order to prevent short cycling of heating or cooling apparatus. Hiseeroffer these tanks in sizes from 100 litres to 2000 litres tank volumes. Each of these tank models are available with system connections on the side of each tank located either high or low to meet application requirements. To meet the wide scope of job site specific connection sizes specified these tanks are available with a standard range of connection sizes as shown on our submittal data sheets.
