The work on developing the heat pumps for space conditioning and water heating has been gone for half a century. The earlier water heating pumps and air to water heating pumps gives only hot water and space conditioning. But in this air conditioning cum water dispenser we get hot and cold water with hot and cold air, thus the system becomes multifunctional. The actual cycles and operating conditions for air and water cycle present in this paper. The paper int roduced basic design principles and the test analysis performed in the laboratory. The test results were found encouraging especially the parameters of dispenser output along with air conditioner. The paper also introduced comfort conditions and suitable coefficient of performance with respect to atmospheric condition, without sacrificing the air conditioning output.
