Quiz No. 6 A heat pump has a coefcient oF perFormance β = 0 . 5 β carnot and maintains a house at T H = 20 C while the house loses energy at ˙ Q = 0 . 6( T H T L ) kW. ±or a maximum oF 1 kW power input, ²nd the minimum outside temperature T L For which the heat pump is a sufcient heat source. Solution Applying the ±irst Law oF Thermodynamics to a control volume surrounding the house, it is evident that the heat pump must supply heat at the rate
