Alternative Energy Demystified 56 • The air that comes from a heat pump is near 35ºC (95ºF). This is warmer than the typical indoor environment, but it won’t heat up a cold house very fast. • Heat pumps are relatively expensive to install new. This is especially true of the deep ground source type. It may take a long time for a new system to pay for itself. Quiz This is an “open book” quiz. You may refer to the text in this chapter.

Suppose the difference between the indoor and outdoor temperature is 15ºF. That is approximately the same as a difference of a. 27ºC. b. 15ºC. c. 3ºC. d. 5ºC. 3. Which of the following is not an advantage of an air exchange heat pump over electric resistance heating? a.

The ice, and the liquid water produced as it melts, is at a temperature value of 0ºC. As energy flows into the chunk of ice, more and more of it melts.
