The performance characteristics of a residential solar assisted water-to-air heat pump heating system are analyzed for State College, Pennsylvania. A realistic residence and solar water-to-air heat pump system are modeled for this northern climate using the transient simulation computer code TRNSYS developed by the University of Wisconsin. The system is studied over a one month winter period, December, using actual hourly weather data for State College. The system is analyzed for both the cloudiest and clearest December weather recorded in the last 30 years. The collector area and storage tank capacity are varied and the effects on system performance are studied. Other parameters varied and studied are the collector/storage tank heat exchanger effectiveness and the room temperature.
