ICS Cool Energy has introduced a new range to its heat pumps division, AW-HT 5kW – 200kW, with coefficient of performance levels (COP) reaching up to 4.20.
The company says the range has been introduced for systems where there is the need to combine high temperature water for space heating and sanitary purposes, with air conditioning. It’s claimed the space heating can be easily provided by using radiators, so without any major changes on the already existing distributing system available on site.
The units incorporate a complete control system for prioritised sanitary hot water production along with full weather compensated heating controls. This allows the units to function efficiently as either a medium or a high temperature heat pump with prioritised 65 deg C sanitary hot water production. A reversible option for chilled water production is also available.
The company says that unlike medium temperature heat pumps, the new AW-HT units provide an output of 65 deg C in ambient temperatures as low as -12 deg C, with a minimum operating temperature of -20 deg C,
The units provide extremely high levels of performance and high levels of specification, which make them ideal for either new build or retrofit applications within the commercial sector.
Customers can choose to carry out a minimal amount of modifications to an existing heating system when applying a 65 deg C AW-HT to a retrofit application and, as a result, can potentially gain significant benefit in terms of cost and time savings when replacing existing oil or gas fired boilers.
