A quick dip, holidays and ice creams are just not enough to combat the dreaded heat of summer. That is exactly why air conditioning was invented.
Of all the available air conditioning systems, the reversible heat pump is the one that will ensure you don’t sweat and allow you to simply enjoy the summer.
You will never be too hot again
Not many people know about heat pumps, but they are used in Spain and in other cooler countries because they are so effective. The basic principle is totally counterintuitive: cooling your home by transporting heat..
Heat pumps are eco-friendly, since they consume very little and use heat as a source of energy. How is this possible? Thanks to the second law of thermodynamics.
Uh? The one that says: “heat spontaneously flows from a hot object to a cold one and not the other way around, until the temperatures of the two objects are the same”. Or what’s the same in layman’s terms: heat is contagious .
400% energy efficiency
The heat pump system absorbs heat from a location and transports it to another, as hydraulic pumps do with water. In fact, that is where the name of this type of air conditioning system comes from: from pumps that take water from wells, taking it from a lower level to a higher level.
The difference is that now we are talking about transporting thermal heat instead of water. Taking heat from one point to another and, therefore, cooling your room. The result of this process is truly spectacular: 400% efficiency. In other words: for every electrical kW consumed, up to 4kkW of cold can be generated.
No wonder Greenpeace awarded this technology the gold medal in energy efficiency in 2011.
And all of this has a very practical bonus: you can reverse the system, changing it from an air conditioning system to a heating system . All with the same appliance.
