Instead of the more traditional ammonia or halogen-alkane (R134, R407, R410) cooling gases, CO2 heat pumps use supercritical carbon dioxide as a refrigerant. The technology offers energy-saving means and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. From the power generation side, the performance of the heat pump differs from traditional systems (such as electric / gas / oil boilers or electric heaters). In conventional systems, a 1 kW energy input provides less than 1 kW of output energy or heat. In a system with a CO2 heat pump, each 1 kW of energy consumed generates an average of 3.9 times more in the form of output energy or heat due to the removal of heat from the outside air.
The CO2 heat pump runs on electricity and uses the heat extracted from the air to produce thermal energy for production. This highly efficient, environmentally friendly system converts one unit of electrical energy into four units of thermal energy, which provides significant cost savings compared to alternative heating and heat dissipation systems using electricity or gas.
The unique ability of a CO2 heat pump to produce hot water at 90 ° C makes it suitable for use in a wide range of industrial, commercial and residential projects, including food processing plants, dairies, shopping centers, apartments, hotels, restaurants.
Heat pumps at CO₂ produce hot water with a temperature of 90 ° C with an average efficiency of 3.9, which makes it an ideal energy-saving heating system for hot water and heating for industrial, commercial and residential premises. This ability to convert 1 kW of input energy to 3.9 kW of output energy is a constant, cost-effective and sustainable solution for heating water.
