Danfoss air/water heat pump DHP-AX - How works?
 
03:01
This video shows how the new DHP-AX works. With a DHP-AX (air/water) heat pump there is no need to dig or drill. Instead you take the energy straight from the surrounding air using an air handling unit. Danfoss DHP-AX makes use of the energy in the outdoor air. It is so efficient that it is able to convert the energy down as low as -16°C. This is the perfect solution for those of you who do not want to, cannot or are not permitted to drill for rock heat, because it does not require any bore holes. Just like our rock heat pumps, it produces both heat and hot water and can reduce the costs of heating your house by up to three quarters.

Biofuel For Home Heating Success In UK
 
01:58
A new liquid biofuel for home heating has successfully passed a one year field test in the UK. Organizers say the biofuel could cut carbon emissions from the 1.8 million homes in Britain currently using oil rather than gas. Reepham in the east of England is not only off the beaten track - it's also off the national gas grid. Like nearly two million other Britons, Reepham's residents heat their homes using oil - but they at the vanguard of a green revolution. James Joyce owns one of 25 homes in the town that have been testing a new renewable heating oil for use in existing domestic systems. [James Joyce, Trial Participant]: "They put a new tank in here and filled it up with biofuel and it ran for a year and to be honest there's absolutely no problems at all." The trial tested fuels made from kerosene and diesel mixed with differing amounts of used cooking oil - produced at the University of East Anglia's Low Carbon Innovation Centre. [Chris Blincoe, Low Carbon Innovation Center]: "There are opportunities out there for using home heating oil as a biofuel and its just a clear opportunity for those homes that, at the moment have oil-fired heating systems, they want to be lower carbon. Its a real opportunity for them to do that." The Oil Firing Technical Association helped organize the trial. [Jeremy Hawksley, Oil Firing Technical Association]: "They were better really, I mean there were lots of factors we were concerned of, particularly cold weather because biofuel tends to glue up and we didn't know whether it was going to glue up -- its called cold point plugging -- but it didn't." The partnership is now hoping the government will include the new fuel in an incentive scheme where homeowners are paid to produce more environmentally friendly heat to encourage people to go green.

Geothermal Heating and Cooling
 
03:11
Welcome to Ingram's Water and Air Equipment! We will introduce you to geothermal systems and technology, with which you could enjoy the natural warmness of the earth for your home heating and cooling purposes, and do so very economically. Geothermal heat pumps are environmentally friendly, using the earth's even temperature and renewable energy as the source for controlling heating and air conditioning. Unlike a conventional system, geothermal pump systems mainly utilize the earth's warmth for heating and cooling your home. One of the prime benefits associated with its usage is that it helps to lower energy consumption and reduce costs by up to 50%. An added benefit to a geothermal system is that there is no need for separate equipment in order to cool your home. Prolonged operating intervals, gradual and even distribution of heat, zero greenhouse gas emissions, and improved interior comfort are the other significant benefits of using geothermal systems. Let us see how a geothermal system works! The system extracts heat from the ground during winter and puts it back into the ground during summer. For the functioning of all types of geothermal systems, three major components are necessary: ground loop, a heat pump furnace unit, and a distribution system. The ground loop system involves a chain of high density polyethylene pipes, all of which are buried in the home's yard, and its primary function is to collect heat from soil underneath the frost line. Depending upon your home and yard's size, the ground system loop is available in four different configurations: horizontal closed loop, vertical closed loop, and lake or pond closed loop. Open loop systems are the simplest. Used successfully for decades, ground water is drawn from an aquifer through one well, passes through the heat pump's heat exchanger, and is discharged to the same aquifer through a second well at a distance from the first. Generally, two to three gallons per minute per ton of capacity are necessary for effective heat exchange. Since the temperature of ground water is nearly constant throughout the year, open loops are a popular option in areas where they are permitted. The heat extracted from the earth is then transferred to the heat furnace unit, which is located within your home. With the help of the distribution system, this heat reaches the interior of your home. When needed to cool your home, the system reverses, taking the heat out of the air in your home and distributing it through the loop system back into the ground. Geothermal heat pump is a proven technology which evidence is its more than one million users from across the world that use it as a reliable, cost effective option for comfortable home cooling and heating purposes year-round.

diy radiant heating

Radiant heat save thousands Do it yourself ! If you're tired of stepping out of the shower onto a freezing cold tile floor, maybe it's time for you to look into radiant floor heat--particularly if you're building a new bathroom or doing major remodeling (most types can be problematic to retrofit). DIY Radiant heat is warm and cozy underfoot--in fact it warms your entire body quietly and invisibly with radiant energy instead of by blowing warmed air into the room the way a more typical forced-air heating system does. DIY Radiant heat floor systems are either hydronic (hot water) or electric. Hydronic systems utilize a system of tubes that wind beneath the floor, transferring warmth from the hot water that circulates within them. They require a special water heater. Electric radiant systems incorporate special electric-resistance panels, coils, or foil to radiate heat. Because these are essentially like the innards of a large toaster, they can draw hefty electric energy when turned on. Unless you have great access to the underside of the floor you want to heat, DIY radiant heat is not easy to retrofit under an existing floor. It's easiest to install it in new construction or where you're tearing-up the floor during a considerable remodeling project. What's the Right System? The first big question is: Which type of system is better for your DIY Radiant heat project — hydronic or electric? In the case of constructing a new home, a hydronic system will likely be the best choice for use as a sole source of heat for the whole house. If you're building a new home and want to use DIY radiant heat to "spot warm" the home, hydronic may still be your best bet, but the final decision may depend on the difference in cost. Compare prices for both types and explore the varying products on the market before putting down any money. Electric systems may be your best bet for remodeling. For one thing, hydronic floor systems can elevate the floors by a couple of inches, which can be a problem when remodeling. Some thin electric systems only elevate the floor by about 1/8 inch. Also, the concrete slab of hydronic systems can take a few hours to heat up once they've been turned on. Electric systems usually take between 30 minutes and an hour to heat up. In most cases, electric systems are governed by a timer and a thermostat that homeowners preset with on/off cycles. While the electricity cost of generating 1,000 Btu's may be cheaper with a hydronic system than with an electric system, the way the systems function plays quite a role in energy costs. Hydronic systems are generally left on for a period of months to accommodate the lengthy heat-up time of the systems. Electrical systems are usually timed to switch on and off according to when the homeowners will be at their house. The many "off" sessions cut down the cost of electricity. So consider your lifestyle and how you will be using the heating system. Cost of installation depends on the nature of the job. For remodeling projects or single-room installations in new homes, hydronic systems will cost more to install. However, in large jobs such as whole-house applications in new construction, a hydronic system will cost less. Krell can help dtermine which system is best suited for your needs DIY Radiant Heat Hydronic Installation As mentioned earlier, the tubing in hydronic systems is usually embedded in a concrete slab or a 1 1/2-inch-thick concrete overlay on top of a wood floor. This is usually referred to as a "wet" installation. The tubing can also be suspended in the space below wooden floors or stapled on top of subfloors, which is commonly called a "dry" installation. But a concrete or "wet" installation provides better soundproofing and fireproofing, as well as adds stability and protection to the tubing for a sturdier floor. Almost all tubing for hydronic systems is guaranteed for 25 years, with a lifetime expectancy of 100 years.

We can custom tailor a radiant floor heating system to heat one room, or a whole house! Each Do-it-yourself package comes complete with everything you will need to install your heating system along with detailed plans that are sure to make it easy for the do-it your-selfer! Contact Krell Distributing today to get started! RADIANT HEAT A Better Alternative Don't be fooled by a "92% efficiency" rating on a forced-air furnace. Radiant heat systems can be as much as 30-40% more efficient than forced-air systems. Why the difference? A radiant heat system is intrinsically a more effective method to distribute the heat. Forced-air systems can efficiently heat the air, but they lose efficiency when you factor in distributing it throughout the house. Much of the energy is trapped in the air higher up in the room. Radiant heat gently warms the solid objects in the room and the air as it comes in contact with the radiantly-warmed objects. Radiant heat will result in lower operating costs than other systems. This is due to the following factors: The Condensing Boilers used with radiant floor heat achieve up to 95% efficiency. Condensing boilers lower the temperature of the flue gas going through the heat exchanger enough to condense the water vapor present in the flue gasses. This results in latent heat of vaporization, which adds up to 10% overall efficiencies. Lower Thermostat Settings in the home. Since in a warm air system the temperature at the ceiling is higher than the occupied zone (1-6 feet) higher thermostat settings are required to achieve comfort. With radiant floor heat, the opposite is true and a temperature of 63-65 degrees is comfortable. Zoning (Multiple thermostats) are typical thus the areas not being used can be maintained at a lower temperature the number of zones is determined by the system designer after consulting with the home owner. Forced Air vs. Radiant Floor Heat Condensing Boilers operate at low water temperatures. In a typical radiant concrete floor, 95 degree water is circulated; in a typical radiant wood floor, 110 to 120 degree water is circulated. Produced by IM4B, http://www.im4b.com.

Tips For Enhancing The Performance Of An  Energy Efficient Air Conditioning Unit
 
01:01
With the high cost of electricity and other forms of energy sources for houses and commercial buildings the demand for energy efficient heating and cooling systems has dramatically increased around the world. There are several options when considering an energy efficient air conditioning unit and they can range from the window air conditioners through to conventional forced air or even a high velocity air conditioning unit. to get those efficient results No matter how energy efficient the rating of the new air conditioning unit may be, consumers need to be aware that they have to correctly install, select and maintain the unit to get those efficient results. Air conditioning units that are installed incorrectly or below recommended standards or those that are simply too small or much to large for the size of the room space they are designed to cool will reduce the energy efficiency and even create energy overuse. lead to inefficiency Even the most energy efficient air conditioning unit needs to be used and operated properly to ensure that it stays that way. Some of the most common mistakes that people make when using, installing or maintaining an air conditioning unit that lead to inefficiency include: Leaving doors and windows open • Leaving doors and windows open while the unit is running. This forces the air conditioning unit to continue to run without being able to cycle on and off. Even when the open window or door is on the other side of the residence or building it will still decrease the air temperature and trigger the air conditioner to stay in the cooling part of the cycle. Improper insulation within the house • Improper insulation within the house. Like leaving windows and doors open, poor quality or lack of insulation in the house allows the warm air outdoors to warm up the cool air indoors, or more correctly keeps the outside walls of the house warm, thereby transferring the heat to the inside walls and the inside air. Proper insulation around outside doors and windows also helps reduce cold air loss and prevents the unit from cycling on and off. Incorrect size of air conditioning unit for the space • Incorrect size of air conditioning unit for the room or space. Smaller units are often less expensive, so home owners or building managers may try to use smaller units despite the large floor space. This is very energy inefficient as the unit is constantly on and working to produce enough cold air to try to bring the room temperature to the set level. Buying a bigger, slightly more expensive unit that is designed for the floor space is much more energy efficient and significantly cost saving over the long run. Setting the temperature too low • Setting the temperature too low. Keep the thermostat set at 70 or above, cooler temperatures force the unit to work much harder and will result in a significant energy drain. learn about Review consumer reports and learn about the various types of energy efficient air conditioning units before making your decision.

Embracing Geothermal Technology
 
02:21
VIEW ROYAL - A Vancouver Island company is integrating geothermal technology into its newest townhouse development. Limona Construction says on average, its geothermal town homes in View Royal will reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by 3 to 5 tons. The company says homeowners stand to save thousands of dollars on heating and cooling costs. Limona Construction has enlisted Geotility Geothermal Systems to provide engineering, design and geothermal installations for The Plateau townhouse development. At the heart of a geothermal system are one or more ground source heat pumps which operate in a manner similar to a common refrigerator. Unlike conventional heating systems that burn fossil fuels or use electricity to create heat, heat pumps simply move heat from one place to another. View Royal's mayor says The Plateau is an important part of the region's sustainability strategy. The first town homes should be ready by mid-summer 2010.
