Traditional ways of heating with natural gas or electric energy can be effectively replaced or supplemented by alternative heating which can utilise heat from the ambient environment. Improving the energy efficiency and developing the renewable energy which closely relate to the general economy and social policy in most countries. They have a real potential to contribute to the sustainable development and economic growth and can influence all areas of economic activity and are one of the sophisticated method out of the economic crisis. The article is devoted to the use of non-traditional energy sources, which are the method of heating and hot water preparation using heat pumps in combination with a cogeneration unit. The experimental part balances the system of heat pump and cogeneration unit, the effect of the different parameters of the system operation in running of the whole system.
