This French guide provides typical diagrams for the indoor hydronic circuit and the control strategy of systems with air to water (or water to water) heat pumps that are used for heating and domestic hot water production in new or renovated houses.A first chapter provides rules in order to optimise the operation of the heat pump.Seven typical diagram families are then proposed, each of them including different options.

This report from the French Programme "Règles de l'Art Grenelle Environnement 2012" describes the operation of air to water heat pumps that include a control of the compressor motor speed (inverter technology), in order to adapt the heat output to the actual needs.Information is given about the energy performance of these appliances, based on some laboratory tests.This allows for discussion about the optimal sizing of such heat generators to cover building heating needs, compared to heat pumps with an on/off control strategy.

These French professional rules concern building systems with air to water heat pumps (<50 kW) that are used for heating in renovated houses.The rules include three parts in three separate documents:- The first part (89 pages) describes rules for designing and dimensioning the heating system (heat pump, auxiliary heating source, hydronic circuit, heat emitters, controls). Heat emitters may be hot water radiators, heated floor or fan coil units.- The second part (103 pages) describes rules for installation and commissioning of the system.
