What’s Old is New Again: The Environmental and Operational Benefits of R744 Heat Pump Water Heaters
Heat pump water heaters provide very efficient operation, but many still rely on refrigerants that contribute to global warming. This session will explore low GWP CO2 refrigerants that can provide high performance under a wide range of operating conditions. This rapidly growing product category offers many unique benefits. We will examine the factors driving the adoption of R744 powered heat pumps, the keys to a transcritical refrigeration cycle, options for maximizing performance, strategies for applying this technology, and opportunities to integrate them with other eco-friendly water heating systems.
