Tech/Engineering - Mechanics / Mech Engineering / Describing temperatures
French term or phrase: par -12C extérieur
This is a manual for a geothermal heat pump, which is claimed to have a "température sortie d'eau 65C par -12C extérieur."

I think this means it will output water at 65C even when the ambient/external temperature is as low as -12C - but I'm not sure, and would appreciate some confirmation or correction!

Help much appreciated.
