Octopus Heat Pumps IS – an efficient solution?

Heat pumps are a modern and efficient solution to provide a way of heating. Octopusis a Swedish company specialized in producing such devices, with over 25 years experience in the field and known for its heat pumps which are innovative. One is the model IS (Ice Stick), known as “the pillar of ice.” Below we will tell you how it works and why it is so appreciated.

First let’s see of what Octopus IS system consists:

– Evaporator (evaporator) – aluminum profile system that condenses moisture vapor in the air and turn into ice. In the process of condensation releases the heat, the heat causes the refrigerant from the system to boil (boiling point is low at this point) and evaporate.
– Compressor – it compresses refrigerant vapor and thus raise the temperature of the substance at high levels.
– Heating system – it contains a condensation system. Heated refrigerant vapor is passing through it and transform it in liquid, liquid that is then introduced into the heating system.
– Depressurized (expansion valve) – the above liquid passes through this system that greatly reduces the pressure and thus temperature, repeating the cycle.

So Octopus Ice Stick works on the principle of classical heat pumps, but has the advantages:
– reliability due to the moving parts of a single whole (compressor)
– low noise (not more noise as a refrigerator, so from 3-5 m distance you will not hear)
– long use
– ease of installation (package comes with all necessary elements and is simple to install) and maintenance
It should be noted that to obtain a good yield, it is necessary that the pump be mounted in an area with high air humidity (mountain area, near water, etc.).

There are several models of such heat pumps, for enclosures of various sizes. You can use several pumps in parallel and in addition, the system can easily be coupled with any other heating systems (gas station, solar panels, etc.).

The big disadvantage would be the so called big cost but if you consider the fact that in a period of time the whole investment will pay off, you will get back in reverse all the money by the low costs of the bills. The entire Planet sooner or later will remain without fuels so we have to take in count the several options we still have: the important one is natural energy.
