Heating systems with ground source heat pumps have many advantages comparing to systems with air source heat pumps and are more efficient and reliable. However, in some cases it may not be possible to install a ground collector system due to space limitations or other legislative restrictions, so only in these cases is it recommended to use systems with air source heat pumps.
Clausius air source system (CLAUSIUS Air System) is based on maintaining all the advantages of ground source systems, replacing only the ground collector system by a simple, efficient, reliable, robust and long-lasting air collector system.
CLAUSIUS Air System uses the same CLAUSIUS ground source heat pumps combined with an external air unit (CLAUSIUS Air Source), specially designed and tested by CLAUSIUS, in which the energy that is available in the air is extracted for its input to the heat pump.
CLAUSIUS Air Source external unit transfers the energy captured from the air to the heat pump through a closed circuit in which glycol is recirculated using the circulation pumps integrated in the heat pumps, the same as in the ground source systems. Therefore, CLAUSIUS Air System is based on a very simple and reliable installation since the circulation of refrigerant is not required between the air unit located outside and the heat pump located inside the house, which would require the installation by highly qualified personnel and reduces the reliability of the system due to possible leaks of high pressure refrigerant in the pipes.
