CO2 heat pumps are the perfect solution for energy efficient and renewable residential heating and hot water.
About CO2 heat pumps:
A CO2 heat pump is a very efficient device that uses the heat in the ambient air to produce hot water. Its thermal energy output is approximately three to five times the electrical input. It works the opposite of an air conditioning system: it uses a refrigerant cycle with a compressor and heat exchanger to extract heat from the ambient air and transfer that heat to the water.
CO2 heat pumps use the natural refrigerant CO2, which has a Global Warming Potential (GWP) of only 1. Typically heat pumps use a synthetic refrigerant gas such as R410A, which has a GWP of 2088. This figure shows that when emitted into the air, the impact is 2,088 times greater than that of carbon dioxide.
Carbon dioxide air to water heat pumps are ideal for:
1. High temperature domestic hot water production
2. High temperature radiator heating in existing moderately insulated houses.
CO2 Heat Pump Features:
1. Environmental protection
As an eco-friendly product, the CO2 heat pump hot water system is an affordable system that ranks alongside solar energy in terms of environmental protection. As such, it is eligible for rebates and other government incentives for providing the highest level Small Technical Certificate (STC) of any hot water heat pump system. These rebates save you even more right from the start.
2. Easy installation
Much like traditional hot water systems, CO2 heat pump hot water systems are easy to install and have flexible tank configurations with stainless steel and glass-lined options. CO2 heat pump and stainless steel or enamel enamel storage tank can be placed 10 meters horizontally or 5 meters vertically. The system is suitable for all conditions and climate change. Installation requires a licensed plumber and electrician, and no refrigeration technician is required.
3. Quiet operation
The CO2 heat pump operates at a whisper quiet level - 37dB, making it the quietest hot water heat pump system on the market.
4. High-quality water supply
Water quality is an important aspect that affects system operation and function. For a system to be covered under warranty, the water used in the system must meet the requirements listed in the table.
If you have questions about water quality, contact your local water department or complete a water quality test. In areas with poor water quality, the life of all major components will be shortened due to the hardness of the water. In areas with "hard water" (>200 mg/L or ppm), a water softener must be installed to ensure long-term efficient system operation. Note that glass-lined jars have sacrificial anodes to protect the container from corrosion. The glass line tank warranty is associated with an anode inspection that must be performed every three (3) years.
