TER - Total Efficiency Ratio
Completely integrated functions and maximum performance synergy require an advanced measurement rating for total efficiency of the unit
If you have a unit that can provide for heating and cooling simultaneously, then measuring efficiency with the traditional ratings such as EER and COP would be limiting.
In all the cases in which INTEGRA produces hot and cold water simultaneously, the real efficiency of the unit is the sum of its performance in the hot and cold modes. To objectively measure performance under simultaneous load conditions, Climaveneta, a pioneer in the development of this technology, has conceived TER – total efficiency ratio.
The TER is calculated as the ratio between the sum of the delivered heating and cooling power and electrical power input. The TER reaches its maximum value when the loads are completely balanced and is the most effective way of representing the real efficiency of the unit.
