    Heat Pump



    There's a video on youtube of a guy using an old R22 or R270 air conditioner modified as a heat pump for water heating.

    I was wondering if any of you guys made something like this, as I can only find comercial links for heat pump water heaters (HPWH).

    Also has anyone used R600 as a replacement? I'm asking this because with R22 the head preasures for, say 60C would blow the compressor, however R600 uses about 15bars only at that preasure.

    Thanks

    R22 AT 60C has pressure of 23,5 bar which is perfectly safe for any hermetic compressor. 27 Bar is usual limit.
