ReProWP – Novel reversible air/water-heat pump system for an energy-efficient office building

Due to the increased need for comfort, new office buildings are often cooled nowadays. At the same time, the legal requirements for energy efficiency and the ecology of building systems have become stricter. In the ReProWP P&D-project this development is taken into account. A new type of reversible air/water-heat pump was developed, the heat pump is operated with the natural refrigerant propane. The office building which was investigated is Minergie-P certified and has a reversible heating and cooling distribution (change-over system). The final results are presented in the SFOE final report.
