BoostHEAT is developing its technology in order to replace coal and oil as H&C systems fuels as well as increase energy savings by 2020.
BoostHEAT has designed a first technological innovation with great promise: a unique thermal compressor that uses CO2 as refrigerant. It operates using an external point heat source and it is currently optimised for gas just like a conventional or condensing boiler.
Fuelled with natural gas, the BoostHEAT’s boiler will replace massively coal and oil boilers. Also, it will bring higher efficiency gas boilers in the European building market; this is the largest sector with 40% of total final energy consumption. Indeed, BoostHEAT is a natural gas driven HP. It consists of a single thermodynamic module with one or more thermal compressors in parallel, a heating head, a low-NOx burner, an exchanger, CO2 heat pump circuit, and a control system. The BoostHEAT’s boiler has designed a wide range of systems with output power from 20 to 250kW so as to cover the heating, hot water, and cooling demand (145kWh/(m2 y)) in the building market. In particular, for single family house, collective residential and commercial buildings, such as retail shops, offices, hospitals, schools, pools, sport centres)
For these purposes, the BoostHEAT solutions consist of two product type:
- For single or two family house, with a power of 20 kW and hybridized with a standard condensing boiler (or with solar panels) to ensure the energy demand (especially for hot water);
- In commercial and collective applications, with a power of 50 kW to 250 kW, a CO2 thermodynamic module with six or more thermal compressor.
