Electricity remains the main source of energy for conventional air-conditioning systems, while natural gas - is traditionally utilized for space heating. In both cases the thermodynamic processes are inefficient, as high-grade energy wastes its potential for the processes close to ambient temperatures. The paper describes the methods of multiplication of high, middle and low-grade heat to maximize the effect of space cooling and heating by combining thermally-driven ejector system with the heat recuperation process in the Maisotsenko cycle Heat and Mass Exchanger (HMX). Such a comprehensive and cost-efficient solution for space heating and cooling will help to lower the environmental loads at least twofold, save fossil fuels by 25-30%, displace 100% of the inhaled air at no extra cost and reduce by at least 10 times the energy consumption in the most intensive sector at the expense of the increased efficiency of the proposed technology over the existing systems.
