Recent advances in air-to-water heat pumps make them suitable for cold climates - like upstate NY. Unlike ductless mini-splits, air-to-water heat pumps offer the versatility of hydronics for space heating, cooling, domestic water heating, and even ancillary loads such a pool heating. This type of heat pump is extensively used in European and Asian markets, but to date has had little exposure in North America. This session will present the latest technology, compare it to other options such as mini-split and geothermal heat pumps, and show how to apply it in the context of energy efficient or net zero houses.
Air-to-water Heat Pumps for Low Energy and Net Zero Houses
Wednesday, February 14, 2018
8:30 AM to 10:00 AM
2018 HPC New York Regional Home Performance Conference & Exhibits
By attending this session, participants will:1. Understand how a modern "low ambient" air-to-water heat pump operates
2. Be able to compare the economics of air-to-water heat pumps with alternatives such as geothermal and mini-split heat pumps3. Describe how a basic air-to-water heat pump system operates for heating, cooling, and domestic hot waterPresenters:Attachments:
