The vast majority of heaters using a heat pump installed in the private houses are working to electricity, therefore their efficiency is always considered in the context of energy losses in the production of electricity. By cons, it is different for heat pumps that use as energy transmission, for example, the heat of the compressed gas burners. In their case, the losses due to the conversion play a much less important role.
However, they were using previously has large scale. But that could soon change: the heaters using a thermal heat pump and low power are about to be introduced on the market. They represent an interesting alternative for the heat supply of houses has one or two families.
The energy information service BINE presents this new development in its brochure "Heating using zeolite heating" ("Heizen mit Zeolith-Heizgerat"), which is available free of charge at: http://www.bine.info or by phone: + 49 228 923 790
