Homeham – novel kind of heat pump
- A sharp reducing of thermal power and energy efficiency ratio (COP) of existing heat pump at low outside temperatures;
- Difficulty and even inability to achieve temperature of 55 Celsius (border temperature of Legionella) in the reverse water heating reservoir in winter period;
- High energy costs (sometime, more than 30% of total energy spending) frosted evaporator thawing;
Because low efficiency of existing heat pump an limitation of electricity infrastructure consumer should use a fossil energy sources.
Heat pump with high COP in negative temperatures. Our heat pump Homeham based on multi cascade technology will open 4-7 billion dollar annual niche at heat pump industry to markets such as North USA, Canada, Russia, and Scandinavia.
Our simulations show that we will save more than 31% in Helsinki , 35% in Quebec or 45% in Moscow. As well, our heat pump can work in warm climate providing energy saving of 15%-20%.
Homeham is perfect solution for water heating for hospitals, hotels and nursing homes. Existing heat pump cannot heat a water to very high temperatures without existing support like waste heat. Our heat pump can provide a very hot water with minimum energy expense.
