Air-to-Water heat pumps operate on a similar principle to an ordinary refrigerator.
Heat from the atmosphere is extracted by an outdoor unit and is absorbed by a refrigerant solution which is then compressed to a high temperature. The heat generated is used by the indoor unit to create hot water.
Air-to-Water heat pumps are available in low temperature and high temperature versions.
Low temperature Air-to-Water heat pumps have a maximum flow temperature of 65ºc and are ideally suited to low temperature underfloor heating systems or an over-sized radiator system.
High temperature Air-to-Water Heat Pumps have a maximum flow temperature of 80ºc and are ideal for straight-forward boiler replacements.
Air-to-Water heat pumps can work in temperatures as low as -20ºc.
Some major benefits of Air-to-Water heat pumps are as follows:
- Provides free heating and hot water 365 days a year;
- Built-in hot water cylinder providing a large hot water back up;
- Weather compensating controls improving efficiency;
- Compatible with Solar Thermal;
- Eligible for Domestic and Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive;
- Eco friendly.
