What is it about?

Research deals with the application of ambient temperature and relative humidity to predict the coefficient of performance of split and integrated type air source heat pump water heaters. Also, using the developed models to compare the performance of the split and integrated type air source heat pump water heater

Why is it important?

Based on the ambient conditions, the coefficient of performance of both the split and integrated type air source heat pump water heater can be predicted with a high level of confidence.

Perspectives

To help both policy makers and home owners of the air source technology to compute the operating performance of the technology in a bid to justified it potential techno-economic viability.
