Atlantic heat pump water heaters are a perfect example of efficient and renewable energies solutions for domestic hot water supply. The heat pump water heater consists of a heat pump which captures renewable, clean and free calories contained in ambient as an energy source to heat water.
Performing even in conditions of night, hale or rain, Atlantic heat pump water heaters are environmentally-friendly and cost-effective solutions to produce DHW.
How does it work?
Heat pump water heating systems are solutions where the domestic hot water is heated by an integrated heat pump
The heat pump water heater uses the operational principle of a heat pump, by absorbing calories in outdoor air and using this energy to ensure water heating. The fan (1) inhales ambient air transferring its energy to the refrigerant agent in the evaporator (2) thus changing from liquid to gas. The gas is further heated by compression (3). In the condenser (4) the gas transfers its accumulated heat to the water tank. As it gets colder it transforms back to fluid. The pressure of the fluid is further reduced by the expansion valve (5). The electric back-up heating (6) starts only when required during insufficient heat pump working conditions.
