is once again expanding the UK’s widest range of heat pumps with the launch of the new Air-Eau
range of inverter-driven heat pumps, offering market-leading energy efficiency and performance, low noise levels and easy installation.
With outputs from 6-16kW, the range covers domestic applications from small, well-insulated new build homes, to retrofits in existing homes which will have higher heat requirements.
The range achieves very high CoPs of up to 4.7 across a range of operating temperatures. Designed to work efficiently with underfloor heating, Dimplex Smartrad
radiators or conventional radiators, Air-Eau heat pumps
offer variable water flow temperatures between 35°C and 55°C for maximum space heating comfort, with weather compensated flow temperature control for improved efficiency.
At the heart of the Air-Eau heat pump
is a variable speed, inverter controlled compressor, which allows the heat levels delivered to be matched closely to the heating requirements of the building, as ambient temperatures change.
This means that in cold weather heat pump capacity is maintained, eliminating any need for supplementary back up heating, while at warmer air temperatures, heat pump output can be reduced, helping to improve efficiency.
A key feature for domestic use, Air-Eau heat pumps
have been designed for very low noise emissions; sound pressure levels are typically as low as 50dB at 1m. Plus, the new range also features a ‘quiet’ mode, so noise is kept to an absolute minimum, making it ideal for overnight use.
The heat pumps are very straightforward to install thanks to the range’s monobloc configuration, giving the ultimate ‘plumb and go’ solution. With all the system components contained in the outdoor heat pump itself, including heating system circulating pump, expansion vessel and back up flow boiler, only the hot water cylinder and control valve are located inside the building.
Additionally, an Air-eau
system uses water pipes rather than refrigerant lines to connect the heat pump to the building, meaning there’s no need for refrigerant handling expertise.
range is available in a choice of four outputs from 6-16kW to suit a range of applications and can be supplied together with a matched EC-Eau cylinder
for easy specification.
