MicroGroove Excels in Heat Pump Applications, Says ICA
2017/08/10
Smaller Diameter Copper Tubes Improve the Performance of Heat Pumps
 
New York,(8 August 2017) - According to the International Copper Association, Inc. (ICA), the use of smaller diameter MicroGroove copper tubes in heat pump applications offers one or more of the following advantages: smaller overall size, higher system performance, less copper tube usage and reduced refrigerant volume.
 
Heat pumps offer superior energy efficiency compared to other methods of heating such as boilers, furnaces or electrical-resistance heaters. The “heat out” of a heat pump is typically several multiples of the “work in.” That’s because the “heat out” includes the energy “picked up” at the evaporator as well as the “work in” by the compressor. Consequently the coefficients of performance (COPs) for heat pumps are several multiples of one and can be quite high indeed depending on the design of the heat pump and the heat exchangers in the system.
