Leading heating appliance manufacturer, Ideal Heating, has launched a new range of monobloc air source heat pumps to help improve energy efficiency and reduce reliance on natural gas within commercial buildings.
Available in six outputs and seven models (14kW, 14kW (single phase), 18kW, 26kW, 32kW, 50kW, and 70kW), the ECOMOD Heat Pump range provides a minimum A++ Energy related Products (ErP) efficiency rating and high co-efficient of performance (COP) rating of up to 4.85. R32 refrigerant ensures a low global warming potential (GWP).
The commercial heat pumps also include an inverter-controlled compressor that can control the building temperature based on specific requirements of the space, further enhancing the efficiency of a building.
How can the Ideal heat pump meet commercial requirements?
Ideal ECOMOD can be used alone or cascaded to meet the heating requirements of larger commercial buildings. They can also be installed alongside other Ideal heating solutions, such as the EVOMAX 2 and the IMAX XTRA 2 commercial condensing boilers, to build a low-carbon hybrid heating system.
The commercial air source heat pump range output models are light and compact units in comparison to similar products, making installation and delivery easy. All products also come with a five-year warranty – when commissioned by Ideal Heating and noise levels as low as 68dB(A) – the equivalent of a quiet refrigerator.
Chris Caton, Product Director – Commercial Product Management for Ideal Heating, Groupe Atlantic UK, ROI & NA, said: “The ECOMOD range launches at an important time, as businesses accelerate their decarbonisation efforts to work towards net-zero targets, meet new standards for building regulations, and reduce their exposure to volatile energy prices. With high COPs, our new heat pumps enable businesses to reduce a building’s carbon footprint and improve heating efficiency.
“What’s more, the range of outputs available means we can cater for many commercial buildings. For example, our 14kW single-phase unit is suitable for sites without access to three-phase electricity, such as care homes or community halls, while all units can be cascaded to meet the needs of larger spaces, making them a versatile and cost-effective choice.”
Ideal commercial heating solutions are at the forefront of technology and developed in line with the latest market trends and legislation.
