A new generation of R-410A based air source heat pumps got the British Heat Pump Product of the Year 2016 award.
The new model incorporates a new plate heat exchanger in a domestic cylinder instead of an internal coil helps improve efficiency, speed up tank heat-up times, removes volume displacement from the coil and helps reduce running costs.
Hot water efficiency is expected to improve by 15% in heating up (10ºC to 55ºC) and by 20% in recharging (40ºC to 55ºC). A 4kW unit is designed specifically for the new-build sector, where the hot water requirement is the dominant load.
