Combining an air-water heat pump with the technology of photovoltaics, 3kWh thermal energy can be produced from 1kWh electric energy. This kind of system is suitable for the treatment of drinking water and can take over the complete warm water supply for up to two families. The existing heating system can be switched off during this period. The air in the storeroom in which the pump and the water storage are installed, is the thermal source. A positive side effect of this technology is the cooling and dehumidification of the room. Another advantage of the combination of PV with an air-water heat pump is that the existing components such as inverter and energy management system can take over the monitoring of this part of the system.
Functioning of a heat pump
During the cooling circuit the refrigerant absorbs heat from the thermal source (ground, air, water) and evaporates. The evaporated refrigerant is condensed in the compressor and emits heat through a heat exchanger. This heat can be used for heating purposes or for the treatment of drinking water. The refrigerator then liquefies and relaxes, the cycle can begin anew. VOLTPOOL relies exclusively on the most modern technologies and weather resistant components.
VOLT-Tech heat pumps
The energy yields of heat pumps differ according to the technology of the system which has been chosen. Accordingliy the process from planning to realization can be easy or complex. In normal residential areas the costs for initial investments vary strongly. A premium system can cost up to about 18.000€. Beneath this price range there is obviously a big variety. He output of the system is an important cost factor, but there are also other points such as the technical properties of the device and the installation efforts which play a role. A recent study, coordinated by the Fraunhofer ISE, elaborates on the composition of the future overall energy system in Germany with the aim to achieve the lowest possible overall costs and has shown that the electric heat pump will play an important role in the supply of thermal energy. The air heat pump will be the most frequently installed heat pump in Germany.
VOLTPOOL already relies on the most modern technologies of heat pumps that operate exclusively with renewable energy sources such as air and electricity from a PV system.
We would like to encourage the maximum local consumption of self-produced energy. This way the degree of independence will continue to rise. We would also like to share our positive experiences and exclusive advantages of which our customers can profit with you.
