Air to water and Water to water Heat Pump takes energy from the air/water and raise it to a higher temperature, using a process which is similar to a reverse refrigeration process. A Heat Pump absorbs the heat energy from (air or water) to another location (hot water tank or pool). Its principle used the refrigeration process to transfers low temperature energy (device called evaporator heat exchanger) to a refrigeration loop, the compressor compresses the gases (heat) to a high temperature and transfers this heat to the hot water and heating distribution system (device called condenser heat exchanger). The refrigerant circulates and an expansion valve lowers the pressure and the refrigerant becomes cold again. This process repeats continuously such that 1 unit of input energy plus absorbed 3 units of energy can product 4 units of heat energy.
