The energy output, power, and efficiency of an exhaust air heat pump can be increased by adding the Ecowec® hybrid exchanger to the system. By combining two waste heat sources, the purchased energy of the property’s primary heating system, such as district heating, natural gas, or oil heating, can be reduced.
The Ecowec hybrid exchanger boosts the power and yield of the exhaust air heat pump (parallel connection), replacing more of the primary heating system’s purchased energy. Thus, by combining the heat recovery of exhaust air and wastewater, the property’s energy costs are reduced.
The Ecowec hybrid exchanger raises the temperature of the heat collection fluid (series connection), reducing the heat pump’s electricity consumption and increasing the efficiency of the exhaust air heat pump.
The Ecowec hybrid exchanger prolongs the lifespan of the exhaust air heat pump and reduces its maintenance needs. Because the temperature difference between the solution and output is smaller, the exhaust air heat pump operates more smoothly. This also enhances the durability of the exhaust air heat pump, requiring less maintenance and repairs
Ecowec can be connected to all heating systems, improving the system’s power and efficiency.
In series connection with the exhaust air heat pump, the Ecowec hybrid exchanger raises the temperature of the heat collection fluid, reducing the heat pump’s electricity consumption, increasing its efficiency, extending its lifespan, and reducing property energy costs. With a parallel connection, the power and yield increase, allowing the exhaust air heat pump to replace more of the primary heating system’s purchased energy (e.g., district heating, electricity, oil, natural gas).
The hybrid exchanger and the exhaust air heat pump system are interconnected in the manner indicated by an illustration in two different ways. The heat pump’s collection fluid first circulates to the roof for exhaust air heat recovery and, on its return, circulates through the Ecowec hybrid exchanger before returning to the heat pump. This system method is patented.
