This issue of idronics
deals with “air-to-water” heat pumps that heat buildings by absorbing low temperature heat from outside air and delivering it, at higher temperatures, to a hydronic distribution system. These heat pumps combine the advantages of modern air-source heat pump technology with the unsurpassed comfort of hydronic heating and cooling. They are widely used in Europe and Asia, and represent a growing market opportunity within North America.
idronics is a journal of design innovation for hydronic, plumbing and renewable energy professionals.
