Heat Pump Technology Applies on Air-conditioners Impact on Electric Power


In recent years, power grid has been experienced in difficult times that there is a shortage of demand load among market, and more and more black out exited that bothered residents’ normal life. With the increment of energy consumption and power load, this problem will be more serious without any feasible solutions. Besides, the air conditioning system is the largest residential energy consumer. In this report, a GSHP air conditioning system has been illustrated and compared with the conventional air conditioning system currently used in Chengdu, Sichuan province, China. The benefits of using the GSHP system are not only on cost saving, but also energy saving and eco-friendly.
