How do Cold Climate Heat Pumps Work?
Heat pumps are an excellent alternative to gas or oil-fired boilers, but you may worry that if you live in a cold climate, this type of system will not be able to efficiently heat your home. In fact, this is not the case.
How can this be?
Air contains energy at any temperature above zero degrees Kelvin (-273.15 degrees Celsius or -459.67 degrees Fahrenheit), which means that air at -30 degrees Celsius contains energy, and +30 energy contains 60 degrees more energy. From a percentage point of view, we can say that air at +30 degrees has about 22% more energy than air at -30 degrees, compared to air at absolute 0 degrees. The way we collect energy in this cooler air is exactly the same way we collect heat in any other heat pumps, such as our cold climate heat pumps, through the refrigeration cycle. Freon is a gas that changes state at -29 C at a temperature of 1 ATM. We can change the boiling speed by adjusting the pressure. In the case of a cold weather heat pump, the system is set to -25 C. The energy in the air is sufficient to cause the freon to evaporate, thereby absorbing heat energy from the air and continuing to enter the compressor refrigeration cycle as a gas.
Our cold climate heat pump:
Cold climate heat pumps are a revolution in heat pump technology and are still unparalleled in terms of cost and performance. Our engineers designed this heat pump with the mission of making it the most efficient cold climate heat pump on the market, at only ½ the price of a traditional geothermal heat pump. This is done without sacrificing quality. The design of the device uses industry-leading components. This includes variable speed pumps, Panasonic EVI DC inverter compressors, European Sanhua valves and Chico digital control systems. All of these are used directly in the complete weatherproof enclosure.
Integrated heating solution:
Unlike any other cold climate heat pump system on the market, our heat pump can control the heating and cooling needs of your entire home, including domestic hot water. The heat pump integrates a variety of heat sources, such as; floor radiant heating/cooling, forced ventilation central air treatment It can also be integrated into any swimming pool or hot tub to provide sufficient heat through our titanium heat exchanger. The outdoor installation (ODR) contains everything you need in one situation (overall). This results in no need to hire refrigeration technicians. All you need is an electrical connection with an outdoor rated disconnect device (weatherproof). This system requires a 240 VAC connection and dedicated circuit breakers for 20, 30, 40 Amp, depending on the size of the heat pump.
Features of our cold climate heat pump:
Our cold climate heat pumps are different from most other heat pumps. These heat pumps are designed for severe cold temperatures. Features such as: large outdoor evaporator unit can provide excellent heating in extremely cold conditions, DC variable speed compressor can achieve the highest efficiency, intelligent defrost logic can reduce overall operating costs, because the outdoor unit does not require continuous defrosting. Another key feature is that our cold weather air source heat pump has passed Energy Star certification to ensure you get the best return on investment.

How can cold climate heat pumps save you money?
By switching to cold climate heat pumps for climate control, ordinary households can save 30% to 50% of their monthly energy costs. Although the installation of a cold climate heat pump costs between US$3,900 and US$7,000, the monthly savings will quickly recoup your initial investment. In some places, you can also get discounts on cold climate heat pumps worth up to $400. An important aspect of installing cold climate heat pumps is that they require a day or less to install because they do not require any piping systems or other complicated installation materials.
This is your choice
At the end of the day, you can decide whether to install a cold climate heat pump in your home or business. Based on the factors we are discussing here today, you should be able to determine whether you can get the huge energy savings that many others are currently getting by installing a cold climate heat pump.
