Heat Pump Cycle Basics (ACHPI2)

This publication from the Air Conditioning and Heat Pump Institute of the Institute of Refrigeration covers "How to make sure air conditioning heat pumps work efficiently - temperature control, comfort cooling and heating".  It illustrates the basic vapour compression cycle and explains how this can help through observation and measurement to ensure a system is working correctly and more importantly efficiently.  Many faults result in inefficiencies long before they cause a catastrophic failure. Correct monitoring and diagnosis can avoid these failures and result in significant energy savings, fewer call backs and a longer equipment life.
