Solar Assisted Heat Pump System for Floor Heating
Solar assisted heat pump system(SAHP) has a wide and wonderful future for its excellent performance in energy saving and environment protection. Solar assisted heat pump system for floor heating is combined by solar assisted heat pump and floor heating. Presents the operating principal and key equipments and designs solar collector, thermal storage container, floor-coil radiator and so on， discusses the feasibility of introduction of a combined heating system for an energy building in Qingdao. On the base of this, two types of energy supply systems, the conventional system(gas heating and SAHP system, were set. Those two types of systems were evaluated regarding energy efficiency and environmental load. According to the results, compared with the conventional system, SAHP system was capable of reducing the primary energy consumption and CO2 emission, respectively 20% and 19.2%.
