Along with traditional methods of solving the problems of heating and the use of alternative energy sources by upgrading equipment, switching to more environmentally friendly fuel, automation, etc., non-traditional schemes are increasingly used. One of the devices that can make a significant contribution to the management of economic energy resources is a universal heat pump unit (HPU) with the possibility of wide use (climate control) in heating, hot water supply and air conditioning, dehumidification and humidification of the air in the room, while providing comfortable conditions.
In this article, the authors have identified a number of significant advantages of both the universal heat pump installation (HPU) and the advantages for the consumer when using it. The approximate scheme of introduction of the universal combined air heat pump with the built-in solar collector, a warm plinth, a warm floor, hot water supply, a fan coil is presented. The authors describe the process of transfer of ASHP from the heat supply mode to the cold supply mode.
In the conclusion of the article the authors give arguments of expediency in favor of energy saving in the implementation of HPU – reducing the use of non-renewable fossil fuel resources, improving the environment and obtaining the same economic effect.
