    By 2008, a report by the United States Department of Energy ranked the firm as fifth in the US in the central air conditioner and heat pump market with a 12% market share (behind UTC/Carrier with 27%, both Goodman/Amana and American Standard/Trane with 14% and Lennox with 12%), while in the residential gas furnace market as of 2008, the company ...

  3. Tankless water heating - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tankless_water_heating

    Gas water heaters have an exhaust vent or one to two exhaust pipes on the top, and still require electric power for electronics, sensing and ignition. A three-phase, 21 kW, 400-volt tankless water heater in Europe, with new European color coding for three-phase power. There are also heaters that use several single-phase circuits instead.

  4. Forced-air gas - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Forced-air_gas

    Gas-fired forced-air furnaces have a burner in the furnace fuelled by natural gas. A blower forces cold air through a heat exchanger and then through duct-work that distributes the hot air through the building. [2] Each room has an outlet from the duct system, often mounted in the floor or low on the wall – some rooms will also have an ...

  5. Heat trap - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_trap

    Heat traps are valves or loops of pipe on the cold water inlet and hot water outlet of water heaters. The heat traps allow cold water to flow into the water heater tank, but prevent unwanted convection and heated water to flow out of the tank. [1] [2] Newer water heaters have built-in heat traps.

  6. Edwin Ruud - Wikipedia

    Edwin Ruud (9 June 1854 – 9 December 1932) was a Norwegian-American mechanical engineer and inventor who immigrated to the United States where he designed, sold, and popularized the tankless water heater. He was the founder and President of Ruud Manufacturing Company, now a division of Rheem Manufacturing Company. [6] [7] [8]

  7. Heat exchanger - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_exchanger

    Heat exchanger. A heat exchanger is a system used to transfer heat between a source and a working fluid. Heat exchangers are used in both cooling and heating processes. [1] The fluids may be separated by a solid wall to prevent mixing or they may be in direct contact. [2]

  8. Heat pump and refrigeration cycle - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heat_pump_and...

    Thermodynamic heat pump cycles or refrigeration cycles are the conceptual and mathematical models for heat pump, air conditioning and refrigeration systems. A heat pump is a mechanical system that transmits heat from one location (the "source") at a certain temperature to another location (the "sink" or "heat sink") at a higher temperature.
