Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe SAS has announced the launch of its latest addition to the Yutaki family of air source heat pumps (ASHP), which extends the Yutaki-S split system product line-up.
The new Yutaki-ST is an all-in-one compact indoor unit which provides heating and domestic hot water up to 60 deg C and comfort cooling, is available from 2HP~6HP (single and three-phase) with capacities from 2.3kW to 17.8kW - with either a 200L or 260L integrated stainless steel hot water tank.
According to the company every 1kW of electricity used to power the A-rated heat pump is capable of providing up to 5kW of energy in a well-insulated home – helping to reduce heating bills by up to 60% and cutting CO2 emissions by up to 75% compared to traditional boiler-led systems.
The Yutaki-ST ASHP utilises R410A refrigerant.
Hitachi says that the compact indoor unit design reduces installation space by around 70 per cent compared to a standalone boiler and hot water tank set up, perfect for homeowners looking to save valuable space inside their home.
All Yutaki-ST components are factory wired and pre-installed - saving around 8 hours on an average installation. - and is priced at approximately 18 per cent cheaper than an equivalent separate water module, tank and 3-way valve.
A redesigned flow meter allows Yutaki ST to control the water flow for maximum efficiency of operation, and a new LCD controller displays heating, cooling and hot water capacities, water flow (for easier commissioning and servicing) and - when connected to a power meter - will also show energy consumption to give the homeowner a clear indication of where energy is being used.
