Temperature Rise Method For Heat Pump
"Temperature Rise Resistive Heat Method. Although this method is not as accurate as the use of test equipment, a method of determining the indoor airflow in a system employing electric resistance heat as the backup heat source is by the Temperature Rise Method and is calculated using the following formula: using the following formula:
CFM = KW(Volts X Amps) X 3.413 divided by (Temp rise X 1.08)
KW= The indoor section's measured input power = Volts x Amps
Volts = The measured Volts at the Indoor Section
Amps = The measured Amps at the Indoor Section
Temperature Rise = The temperature of the supply air - the
temperature of the return air
3413 = BTU per KW
1.08 = Specific Heat Air Constant"
I am trying to determine temperature rise of my Heat Pump.I have a clamp on type multimeter. How do I go about where do I measure Volts at the Indoor Section? In addition, how and where to measure Amps at the Indoor Section?
