Understanding Heat Pumps (HPs)

A heat pump (HP) is a system that can both heat and cool a space
by moving heat from one place to another. It works by extracting
heat from the air, ground, or water outside your home and
transferring it inside to warm the space, or by removing heat
from inside to cool the space.

There are mainly three types of heat pumps: air source heat pumps,
ground source (geothermal) heat pumps, and water source heat pumps.
Each type utilizes different sources of heat to operate.

At the moment, the AI-assistant supports air source heat pump calculations.

Aim of HP calculation

The calculation will display the expenses (investment and operational)
as well as the size of the heat pump.

The size, or capacity in kW, of a heat pump refers to the amount
of heat energy that the heat pump can provide or remove from a space
within a certain period. It indicates the heating or cooling capability
of the heat pump. A higher kW capacity means that the heat pump can generate
more heat or provide more cooling, making it suitable for larger spaces or
areas with higher heating or cooling requirements.

Purchasing a heat pump with a greater capacity will result in increased initial expenses.

About HP calculation

Heating load (kWh):

The heating load of a residential building refers to the amount of heat energy
required to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature during colder periods.
Take a look at the recent gas bills if you own a gas boiler.
To calculate the kWh for a gas boiler when consumption data is provided in m³,
just multiply the m³ value by 10.

Heated living area (m²):

The "heated living area (m²)" in a home is the heated space for living,
including rooms like the living room, bedrooms and kitchen.
