    Heat Pump

    Hello All,

    I wouyld kindly ask for your opinion. Just to double check the following...
    Water to water heat pump operates in heating mode. If heating source temperature is increased, more heat can be extraxted and consequently COP is increased. Do you agree?

    The same applies in cooling mode i.e. lower the heat sink temperature , EER is higher?

    Thanks

    Yes, page 31 and 32 will give you the data you are looking for.
    Beware of advice given by some guy on the Internet.

    Yes that would be true. But how would you do that?

    Yes I agree because you will get a greater heat transfer due to the higher delta T, with presumably no change in the work input to the system.

    Are you sure you are not the guy who asked the question?
    It's not if your doing it right it's whether your doing the right thing that is important.
