In recent years, heat pumps have emerged as a promising new form of technology with a relatively low environmental impact. Moreover, they have presented householders with an opportunity to reduce their heating bills. Heat pumps can heat a building by 'pumping' heat from either the ground or the air outside: an intriguing process which utilizes principles that are somewhat analogous to those employed in the domestic refrigerator. Armed with the practical information contained in these pages, homeowners will have the necessary knowledge to take advantage of this potentially low-carbon technology to heat their properties.Describes what a heat pump is, how it works, the different methods of pumping heat and the importance of an appropriate and well-planned installation. Examines the air, the ground and water as sources of heat and explains how to make an informed choice. Considers the all-important subject of distributing the heat through radiators or through an under-floor system. Covers hot water production and delivery to the taps. Outlines environmental and financial issues associated with heat pumps. Dispels some common misconceptions and presents a number of case studies. Essential reading for all those householders who are considering installing heat pumps in order to heat their homes in a more eco-friendly and efficient way. Aimed at those homeowners who wish to do some of the work themselves or who wish to shadow sub-contractors. A useful reference tool for architects, plumbers, heating engineers, builders and students. Superbly illustrated with 155 colour photographs and diagrams by Gavin D J Harper. John Cantor is a heat pump engineer, inspector and consultant and has written many articles on the subject. Gavin D J Harper is a member of the Institute of Engineering and Technology.

This book offers an in-depth description of absorption chillers and heat pumps, focusing on relatively simple systems that employ working fluids in the liquid and vapor phase. The book provides a thorough explanation of how thermodynamic and transport properties of working fluid mixtures enable them to influence the performance of absorption systems. The student or engineer who is a newcomer to the field will gain a comprehensive knowledge essential for the design and evaluation of absorption systems. This book establishes a solid background in general thermodynamics for the reader. The properties of working fluid mixtures pertaining to absorption working fluid combinations are discussed, and various thermodynamic diagrams are introduced and explained. Water/lithium-bromide and ammonia/water absorption chillers and heat pumps are described, and their features and characteristics are detailed. Measures for improving efficiency are presented, and internal heat exchange options are analyzed. Absorption Chillers and Heat Pumps contains extensive examples. It also includes a demonstration copy of the Engineering Equation Solver (EES) program and program files for all of the examples in the text. Problems are listed at the end of major chapters. This unique book is a superior upper-level textbook for students, and a valuable reference source for engineers.
