**Heat Pump Efficiency** is one of the main benefits of the heat pump. Heat pumps transfer the energy at low temperature to high-temperature energy and transfer it to the environment. Air, water, and ground source heat pumps do not produce heat instead of heat transfer performance is around 300%. Heat pump systems, which are renewable energy systems, are very efficient in this respect. We can meet our heating, cooling and hot water needs with heat pumps.

# 1. What are COP and SCOP?

The COP factor is used for heat pump efficiency measurement. COP stands for Coefficient of Performance and Performance Coefficient. Heat pump efficiency is determined by looking at cop rates. The COP is the value found by dividing the heating capacity by power consumption.

Since we try to reach the highest efficiency in our production of heat pumps, Ekotec heat pump efficiency varies between 3-6 kW when looking at COP ratios. The heat pump COP value is determined by the ratio of the energy it has given to the energy.

Calculating the COP value requires the heating capacity and power consumption measured at the same values. For example, the calculated heating capacity in the conditions of + 7 ° C / + 35 ° C cannot be rated by the calculated electricity consumption in the conditions of + 2 ° C / + 35 ° C. All heat pumps are tested as standard with a supply temperature of + 7 ° C and a supply water temperature of + 35 ° C. If these two values change, the COP values change automatically and therefore the electricity consumption changes.

Seasonal efficiency in heating SCOP is found by dividing the annual heating need by the sum of the power drawn in the annual heating and the power drawn in the auxiliary positions. The SCOP value can be easily calculated from the COP value.

# 2. What are SEER and EER?

The COP used in the heating is changed when the cooling part is activated. The EER factor is used to measure the cooling efficiency of heat pumps. EER stands for Energy Efficiency Rating and stands for Energy Efficiency Rate. The cooling efficiency of the heat pump is evaluated by EER efficiency. The EER value is found by dividing the cooling capacity by power consumption.

Since we try to reach the highest efficiency in our domestic production heat pumps, Ekotec heat pump efficiency varies between 3-6 kW when looking at COP ratios. The energy that the heat pump burns to 1 kW energy is about 4 kW. The heat pump COP value is found by the ratio of the energy it has given to the energy burned. Calculating the COP value requires the heating capacity and power consumption measured at the same values. For example, the calculated heating capacity in the conditions of + 7 ° C / + 35 ° C cannot be rated by the calculated electricity consumption in the conditions of + 2 ° C / + 35 ° C. All heat pumps are tested as standard with a supply temperature of + 7 ° C and a supply water temperature of + 35 ° C. If these two values change, the COP values change automatically and therefore the electricity consumption changes.

Seasonal efficiency in heating SCOP is found by dividing the annual heating need by the sum of the power drawn in the annual heating and the power drawn in the auxiliary positions. The SCOP value can be easily calculated from the COP value.

# 3.Heat Pump Efficiency

The difference between heat pumps from other heaters is that their efficiency is quite high. While the heat pumps deliver 4 times the energy instead of 1 kW energy, in electric heaters this gives 1 kW of energy when drawing 1 kW energy. Thus, the heat pump gives less efficiency with less power consumption. To explain this situation with a simple example, the 4 kW heat pump installed in a room should burn 1 kW and the 4 kW power ufo should be set to give the same efficiency. The energy burned by one is 1 kW and the other one is 4 kW.
