The popular Dimplex LAB M range of air source heat pumps is now MCS certificated, showing it meets robust criteria for quality and performance and extending choices in renewable heat for public sector organisations as well as the private domestic sector. And to make specification simple, the units are also now available in a range of complete heat pump and water heating packages.

MCS certification for both equipment and installer is key to accessing government grant funding under low carbon initiatives. It means the LAB M range is now eligible for funding under CERT, plus certification is also likely to be a requirement under the new Renewable Heat Incentive, proposed to come into effect from April 2011. In addition, MCS certification gives users and specifiers peace of mind that the LAB M range has conformed to a rigorous set of standards.

The competitively-priced LAB M range is available in outputs from 7kW to 11kW and has been designed to keep installation costs to a minimum, with fully integrated circulating pump and expansion vessel.

The new LAB M packages contain all the equipment required to meet the total heating and domestic hot water requirements for a small single household, including heat pump, unvented hot water cylinder with buffer tank, inline flow boiler, circulation pump, controls and connection hoses. The new packages make it easier than ever for specifiers to select a complete solution – without the hassle.

With the recent revisions to Building Regulations Part L and the progression of the Code for Sustainable Homes, air source heat pumps present a major opportunity to reduce carbon emissions from domestic heating and hot water. The compact dimensions of the LAB M range mean that the units are ideal for the smaller property footprints typical of UK housing, particularly for social housing and also for new build, with today’s dwelling density targets.
