Able to draw and transfer thermal energy from air, Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) under the right circumstances represent an efficient way to significantly reduce the carbon emissions of a building. Commercial hot water and heating specialist Adveco now extends its ASHP offering with the Adveco L70, a high capacity monobloc air-to-water heat pump.
Bill Sinclair, technical director, Adveco said, “In conjunction with Adveco’s bespoke application design, the L70 offers a comprehensive response for sustainable hybrid domestic hot water (DHW) and heating. Schools, colleges and universities planning new builds or refurbishment of existing building stock can gain high-efficiency, low-emission, low cost to operate systems.”
Calibrated for the UK climate, the L70 operates with ambient temperatures of -20 to +35°C. When temperatures plummet, the L70 automatically provides built-in frost protection.
Achieving water temperatures up to 60°C, the L70 can be used to supply preheat for hybrid applications with regular hot water demand. The L70 will dramatically lower CO₂ when analysed using the carbon intensity figures from the new SAP10. Compared to gas-fired systems the carbon emissions are reduced by around 70%, when using the SCOP of 3.47 (Ecodesign reference design temperature of 2°C for the UK and water temperature at 55°C).
