Air/air air source heat pump
The outside air contains energy, even at low temperatures, which can be harnessed to create free sustainable energy to heat the home.
Designed to operate in the UK climate on new or existing situations, air source heat pumps utilise the free latent energy within the air, to create heat for underfloor heating or low temperature radiators.
This clean and sustainable heating solution provides an ideal solution for properties without a gas supply, or looking to reduce their CO2 emissions.
The Ideal Airtherm has been designed specifically for the UK maritime climate with its relatively high humidity levels and provides a simple and dependable solution; Delivering around 100% of the annual heating and domestic hot water for a wide variety of properties.
Ideal Airtherm heat pumps provide an excellent efficiency performance of up to 400% (dependent on duty).
The normal measure of efficiency is the coefficient of performance (COP) which usually varies between 2 and 4 dependent on external air temperatures, humidity and heating temperatures. The range is particularly suitable for well-insulated properties and those without a mains gas supply.
Heat pumps are recognised by the Government's Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) and show significant carbon emissions savings over other forms of space and water heating. With the target to reduce CO2 emissions by 50%, Ideal's Airtherm allows compliance with level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, when used in conjunction with national energy saving methods such as improved thermal insulation.
