- One is able to save 50% of the heat bill in Denmark.

- Saving 75% the CO2-emission.
Working of heat pump:
- #1 Refrigerant is used to transfer heat.
- #2 Heat exchanges warms refrigerant.
- #3 Refrigerant vaporizes, liquid to gas.
- #4 Compressor increases gas temperature.
- #5 Heat in gas released to warm house.
- #6 Cooling gas condense to liquid.
- #7 Refrigerant is ready to start cycle over.
