A new generation of high performance air source heat pumps
were revealed by Danfoss Heat Pumps at Ecobuild.
The new DHP-AQ heat pump range offers market-leading seasonal performance, thanks to a unique control system that constantly controls and optimises three key parameters in the product: airflow (efficient variable speed EC fan), the refrigerant circuit (electronic expansion valve) and heat distribution (OPTI technology).
In combination, these create the ultimate in air/water heat pump efficiency, enabling DHP-AQ to perform perfectly at very low outdoor temperatures, keeping a property comfortably heated, as well as providing constant hot water.
The new DHP-AQ air source heat pumps work well in the very coldest winters – even down to -20oC continuing to deliver a consistently comfortable indoor environment and constant hot water, whatever the weather. This is possible because state-of-the-art defrosting technology ensures the energy efficiency and full functionality of the heat pump, even during a cold winter. DHP-AQ has been developed by Danfoss in Scandinavia, a world leader in heat pump technology.
Chris Dale, Director of Danfoss Heat Pumps, explains: “We have had a huge amount of interest in our new DHP-AQ range of air source heat pumps, which deliver outstanding seasonal performance and can make a huge contribution to a more sustainable build. Air source heat pumps are much in demand in both the domestic and commercial sectors and this range is set to enhance this even further, due to its high system efficiency, aesthetically pleasing design and range of innovative features.”
The range has been purposed-designed to be straightforward for experienced heating engineers to install and Danfoss Heat Pumps is currently providing training to its network of approved installers on the new product range.
Danfoss’s range of heat pumps are known for their reliability and trouble free operation and this range is no different, as Chris Dale explains:
“Our new DHP-AQ range has been designed for simple installation, which means a system can be installed with a minimum amount of time onsite. Our heat pumps systems are largely hassle-free, providing a reliable and sustainable source of heating, cooling and hot water.”
In addition, the new DHP-AQ heat pumps are designed to offer the lowest sound level on the market. They also offer a minimalist, contemporary, stylish design which means they are a subtle addition to the interior of a building.
The DHP-AQ range is available with a choice of three different indoor kits – Mini, Midi and Maxi to suit buyer’s tastes and the project’s requirements.
For larger domestic properties or for light commercial use, the Danfoss DHP-AQ range can be cascaded in a system, which means this range is suitable for schools, as well as public and commercial buildings.
