Smart Heat Pump Dual

Last update: 28 Aug. 2023

What is a Smart Heat Pump Dual?

A Heat Pump is the evolution of the Air Conditioning (A/C) system: it is now able to cool the cabin but also to warm it, using the thermodynamic cycle of a refrigerant gas.

Over time, EV Heat Pump systems have increased in complexity, taking more and more space while their cost has become quite substantial. Designing compact modules is becoming the main trend.

That is why Valeo proposes a new design of heat pumps, compact and centralized, integrating the refrigerant loop and the coolant loop in a single module. Easy to plug to HVAC, electrical Compressor, battery thermal system and front cooling module, while reducing the volume of refrigerant and piping.
Valeo will be the first Tier-1 supplier introducing such an All-in-One solution, called “Smart Heat Pump DUAL”, on the market by the end of 2023.

The R-1234yf Smart Heat Pump DUAL exists in different architectures to serve as a “Smart Thermal Network” and optimize overall energy and cabin comfort while maintaining driving range.
When the system is fully optimized, the range of electric vehicles can be extend by up to 30% in winter.
