Additional Information

Exergy in a Heating, Cooling and Air-Conditioning system, is a thermodynamic process relating to the extraction of the maximum useful work between a system's current state and equilibrium with its heat reservoir or its environment. Exergy is the available energy to be used, and accounts for process irreversibility due to entropy increasing. At equilibrium with its environment, exergy is zero.

In application, consideration of utilizing low differential exergy sources (including source energy), as with heat pump or solar collection versus fossil fuel, is the preferred as a more sustainable, closer to the environment state process.
