Heating residential buildings with thermal heat pumps

20.05.2015

New gas adsorption heating device for single- and multi-family homes

For a long time, thermal heat pumps were generally considered too large to cover the relatively low heating requirements of single- and multi-family homes efficiently. Newly developed gas adsorption heating devices can now change that.

They have been developed specifically for this application. The BINE-Projektinfo brochure “Heating with gas adsorption heat pumps“ (03/2015) presents one of the new devices. This combines condensing boiler technology with a zeolite/water-based thermal heat pump module.

The device consists of two modules: the thermal heat pump module covers the base load for the building heating. The necessary drive heat is provided by a gas condensing module. This also covers the peak heating requirement on very cold days.

Compared with an electric heat pump, the new concept requires significantly less environmental heat. Borehole heat exchangers, ground collectors and geothermal baskets as well as solar thermal energy can be used as heat sources. An up to 40% greater annual utilisation rate can be achieved relative to pure gas condensing boilers.

The gas-adsorption heating device has been developed by the Viessmann company from Allendorf, Germany. In the subsequent field tests, plant operators and heating installers confirmed their excellent experience with the devices. The operators particularly highlighted the low noise emissions and intuitive operation. The effort required for the installation and commissioning is no greater than for conventional heating systems.

Im Focus: UNH scientists help provide first-ever views of elusive energy explosion

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire have captured a difficult-to-view singular event involving "magnetic reconnection"--the process by which sparse particles and energy around Earth collide producing a quick but mighty explosion--in the Earth's magnetotail, the magnetic environment that trails behind the planet.

Magnetic reconnection has remained a bit of a mystery to scientists. They know it exists and have documented the effects that the energy explosions can...

Im Focus: A Chip with Blood Vessels

Biochips have been developed at TU Wien (Vienna), on which tissue can be produced and examined. This allows supplying the tissue with different substances in a very controlled way.

Cultivating human cells in the Petri dish is not a big challenge today. Producing artificial tissue, however, permeated by fine blood vessels, is a much more...

Im Focus: A Leap Into Quantum Technology

Faster and secure data communication: This is the goal of a new joint project involving physicists from the University of Würzburg. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research funds the project with 14.8 million euro.

In our digital world data security and secure communication are becoming more and more important. Quantum communication is a promising approach to achieve...

Im Focus: Penn engineers develop ultrathin, ultralight 'nanocardboard'

When choosing materials to make something, trade-offs need to be made between a host of properties, such as thickness, stiffness and weight. Depending on the application in question, finding just the right balance is the difference between success and failure

Now, a team of Penn Engineers has demonstrated a new material they call "nanocardboard," an ultrathin equivalent of corrugated paper cardboard. A square...
