A prototype of heat pump based on Peltier effect has been designed and built in this project. The design included the specification of the heat interchanger in the hot and cold sides of the heat pump. It is the first prototype of heat pump built for a medium power. It consists of 24 Peltier cells, an air interchanger based on needles and an water interchanger with channels for water forced circulation. This pump does not use CFC and does not require maintenance.
