Air Source Heat Pumps
The benefits of using a Stiebel Eltron air source heat pump (ASHP)
Air source heat pumps are very efficient, with every unit of electricity used it can produce between 3 and 4 units of heat.
As they do not require collection loops or inside installation, air source pumps are an ideal solution where space is an issue. For the same reasons they typically carry a lower cost of installation than a ground source. Because such a high proportion of the heat output from a heat pump comes from a sustainable environmental source, CO2 emissions are substantially lower than traditional fossil fuel systems. This helps to reduce your carbon emissions and save the planet
Is an air source heat pump suitable for my home?
Do you have somewhere to put it?
We also supply a range of air source heat pumps that can be installed internally if planning constraints apply or it is your aesthetic preference.
What is a buffer tank for?
For air source heat pumps the need for a buffer is even greater than for ground source pumps. The heat exchanger in air source pumps runs much colder than ambient temperatures, and as a result it becomes frosted with ice. Air source pumps must periodically work in reverse to defrost the exchanger. A buffer tank provides a source of heat to steal for this purpose, without robbing heat from the property being heated. Without this dedicated store of heat, an air source machine can start to take heat from a house, actually reducing the temperature of the property in a downward cycle.
Heat pumps, like cars, are less efficient if they start and stop frequently. Buffer tanks allow a pump to run for longer periods of time increasing efficiency. If a single room calls for heat it can use energy stored in the buffer tank first, delaying the need to start the pump again.
Why choose a system by Total NRG?
“For over a decade Bryan Jones has been a leading light in the drive to promote renewable energy in the UK.
While working as a heating engineer, Bryan came to understand the importance of the energy we use for modern life and the effect it has on our planet. He became passionate about exploring the alternatives to fossil fuels that were available in his industry and founded Total NRG to bring these alternatives to his customers.”
Lower Running Costs
The life-span of Stiebel Eltron heat pumps is somewhere between 20 to 25 years. This comes with a 7-year manufacture warranty when designed and installed by Total NRG
Stiebel Eltron ISG is for online remote access, this enables you or Total NRG to change programs or setting, and also will send a text or email to Total NRG or you of any problems.
With over 10 years’ experience in both domestic and commercial sectors, Total NRG has a proven track record of excellence in the design, planning, and installation, of renewable technologies across the UK.
