Solar power is quickly becoming an alternative source of electricity, and businesses in America are innovating solar-electric heat pump systems for residential and light-commercial space heating and cooling, and water heating.
Solar-powered heat pumps can’t only heat and cool residential areas, and heat water, but could also provide emergency backup power during blackouts and after earthquakes.
Solar-boosted heat pumps wouldn’t only reduce electrical energy prices but may also help in reducing the frequency and length of blackouts by reducing peak demand.
Sun-powered heat pumps are fitted with a solar collector panel and an evaporator on the roof, and a tank on the floor; the refrigerant is pumped into the evaporator and has heated by the atmosphere, solar radiation, and even rain. The hot air then flows back to the condenser, which is a coil of tubing wrapped around the tank.

Some solar-photovoltaic heat pumps also incorporate air conditioners offering robust heating in residential and light commercial uses. These devices utilize the photovoltaic-made power and may be substituted directly as the input power for existing air conditioners, without making any significant changes in the AC to embrace a solar-powered electrical unit.
Sun-powered electrical heat pumps are usually fabricated in 1- and 1.5-ton capabilities, with eight 60-W and 80-W PV modules which function in a vapor-compression cycle powered by a DC motor. A change in the pump activates a reversing valve to pump refrigerant from the opposite direction, to turn the solar cooler into a solar heater in cold weather and back into a solar cooler in the summertime.
So as to maximize a heat pump’s efficiency, an individual can also join a 4.5-COP-rated heat pump to passive solar storage tanks or drum walls.
