Presentation Transcript

    1. Heat Pumps: Save Money, Save Energy, Save the Environment

    2. My Background From Bangor, Maine B.A. in Mathematics + Philosophy M.A. in Mathematics 5+ Years Teaching Experience for UMS

    3. A little more Interested in working towards helping save the environment via advanced energy production technology. An extra plus for me: this will be where the money is (i.e. win-win situation). Contacted Mechanical Engineers at UM: Mick Peterson who directed me to Jim LaBrecque (summer of 2010). This brings us here

    4. Outline of Presentation Understand how a heat pump works. Understand how we save energy. How does this save us money? End by discussing how heat pumps help save the environment.

    5. How a Heat Pump Works

    6. Energy Overview Energy comes from many places: - burning oil, flowing water, etc Energy exists in many forms: - heat, electricity, etc Energy can be converted from one form to another: - electricity is used to produce heat, etc

    7. Units Watt = Basic unit of power (electricity) Example: 60 watt light bulb uses 60 watts Kilowatt = 1000 watts KWh = # of kilowatts used over an hour

    8. Examples One 60 watt light bulb uses 0.06 KW and uses 0.06 KWh after 1 hour. Two 60 watt light bulbs left on for one hour use 0.12 KWh. One 60 watt light bulb left on for 2 hours uses 0.12 KWh.

    9. Another Unit Btu = Basic energy unit (heat) 1 KWh 3413 Btus

    10. Heat Pumps are more efficient since you get more energy out than you put in.
