Can the air energy heat pump be cooled in summer?

The excellent performance of the air source heat pump in the “coal-to-electricity” process has made people understand its outstanding advantages in heating in winter. However, many people still don’t know that it can provide not only comfortable heating but also has a powerful cooling function!

Q: Can the air energy heat pump be cooled in summer?

Answer: Of course, you can! In summer, the air energy heat pump is used to cool, keeping the indoor temperature at around 20-24°C.

Q: How does the air energy heat pump cool?

Answer: During refrigeration, the liquid refrigerant vaporizes in the water heat exchanger, reducing the water temperature. The low-temperature and low-pressure gaseous refrigerant is compressed by the compressor, becomes a high-temperature and high-pressure gas, and enters the air heat exchanger. Since the temperature of the refrigerant is higher than the air temperature, the refrigerant transfers heat to the air, and the gas is condensed into a high-pressure liquid. High-pressure liquid refrigerant After being throttled by the expansion valve, it enters the water heat exchanger, and the low-pressure liquid refrigerant is vaporized again to complete a cycle. During this cycle, heat is transferred from the waterside to the air side as the state of the refrigerant changes.

Q: In terms of refrigeration, what is the difference between an air source heat pump and an air conditioner?

Answer: Air conditioners are generally fluorine systems, which will suck away indoor moisture during cooling, causing indoor dryness and discomfort to the human body. The air-energy heat pump adopts “water circulation”, so the wind blown out is softer and closer to the natural wind. At the same time, the moisture content in the cold wind is relatively high, and if you stay indoors for a long time, you will not feel a dry mouth, so The human body will be more comfortable. In addition, the air energy heat pump is energy-saving and low-consumption and has high cooling efficiency, is clean and pollution-free, which is conducive to the protection of the environment.
