Answer: They are a little differnt from regular compressor systems where heat release takes place at a fixed temperature.The heat is eleased at a critical pressure of 71 Bars. Just as in other heat pumps, the refrigerant cools down. These heat pumps are more efficient. For higher heat output water at lower temperature is needed.
