Heat pump systems can be over four times as energy efficient as the most efficient gas or oil boiler. Instead of burning a fuel and producing the associated emissions, they simply move energy that already exists – stored solar energy.
Seasonal performance express the performance of a heat pump over a full year given the heating distribution system, hot water system and the actual customer demand. Proper dimensioning, installation and commissioning are needed to obtain the highest possible seasonal performance.
Seasonal performance is the standard measure for Danfoss heat pumps when designing and building heat pumps, as seasonal performance is the real measure of efficiency.
