What are Heat Pumps?
Heat pumps use electricity and refrigerant to move heat from one place to another. To get a little more nitty-gritty, heat pumps use electricity to absorb heat when the refrigerant vaporizes, and release heat when it condenses. You’re likely familiar with heat pumps already. Refrigerators are heat pumps. A/C units are heat pumps. They’re a tried-and-true technology.
With modern cold climate air source heat pumps, the systems BlocPower is offering, you can use heat pump technology to heat and cool your building year-round.
In the winter, your heat pumps will move heat from outside your building to inside the building. They are 2-3x more efficient than any boiler based heating system down until the temperature reaches -17 degrees F.
In the summer, your heat pumps will pump heat out of your building. They’ll be 20-50% more efficient than conventional window A/C units, and work more efficiently than A/C units until temperatures reach well above 105+ degrees F.
