Reverse Cycle Chillers

What are reverse cycle chillers?

Traditional heat pumps use air to provide heating solutions. For moderately cool climes, these heat pumps suffice. However, they are not as effective in extremely low temperatures and require a backup heating unit like electrical resistance strips. This is where reverse cycle chillers (RCCs) have an advantage. RCCs are a type of heating system that uses hot water as a heat source. When the cycle is reversed, RCCs have the ability to cool the room. This means the system serves a dual purpose of providing both heating and cooling solutions.
