This peltier thermoelectric cooler creates a temperature differential on each side. One side gets hot and the other side gets cool. Therefore, they can be used to either warm something up or cool something down, depending on which side you use. You can also take advantage of a temperature differential to generate electricity. The thermal tape listed below works very well to attach heat sinks to the hot side.
Note: It is imperative that a heat sink is used on the hot side of the module. Running the module without a heat sink (2 seconds) can cause damage to this part. Be careful of the hot side when you attempt to touch it!
The side with “TEC1-12706” text is the hot side, the other side with no text is the cooler side.
