hydronic distribution system
Unlike conventional heating systems based on the combustion of gas or liquid fuel , as well as direct transformation of electric energy into thermal energy in the heat pump is not consumed to produce heat , but only its transfer from the external environment . That’s what makes these systems an attractive solution for space heating and hot water at sites with limited energy resources.
Heat pumps ” Ekodan ” manufactured by Mitsubishi Electric, intended for individual heating and hot water town houses and similar buildings that do not have access to such a relatively cheap energy sources such as gas and liquid fuels , as well as substantially limited in the electrical power input .
Maximum heat output of a system of ” Ekodan ” is 14 kW, which is commensurate with modern heat loss of individual country houses. To increase the power provided an opportunity to cascade systems.
Heat pump ” Ekodan ” consists of two units : the outdoor unit , which is largely similar to the outdoor unit air conditioner, and indoor unit – hydronic heating water performing . Units are equipped with all the necessary control devices , control and regulation . Installation of such a system is no different from conventional air conditioning installation – cope with it any HVAC company . Excludes complex design heating and DHW system of separate components: a hydronic distribution system simply connects to the sanitary water use , as well as forward and reverse heating pipes .
