Heat pump technology has been around for quite some time, first realized in Switzerland where 75% of the new dwellings built are currently heated by heat pumps.
The principle of equivalence between work and heat was first established in 1842. A rolling piston compressor, the so-called “Rotasco” was designed in 1936. This compressor type was chosen for the first European heat pump in Zürich, Switzerland.
Switzerland suffered from a fuel supply shortage during and after the First World War. Hardship makes people creative and a heating using heat pumps were considered around 1918. 35 heat pumps for heating were installed from 1938-1945, the main heat sources being lake water, river water, ground water and waste heat.
A worldwide milestone was the installation of a heat pump in 1937/38 to replace single room wood stoves in Zürich City Hall. After 63 years of operation the historic heat pump was replaced by a new one.
After more than two decades heat pumps experienced a rebirth with the oil embargo of 1973 with the development of the second generation of heat pumps for central water heating systems for dwellings and semi detached houses. In the 1990s, cheaper, more efficient and more reliable heat pumps became available. The growing environmental problems made the idea of saving primary energy by heat pump heating more and more popular.
Announcements & Tips
Maximize usage of your heat pump as your primary heating system.
Experiment with your heat pump settings to achieve the right balance. Consider setting your older system's thermostat to at least 10 degrees cooler than your heat pump thermostat. By doing this, you will be using your older system only as back-up.
