Panasonic’s Aquarea Monobloc air to water heat pumps are being applied at a new housing development of 20 homes in Cambridgeshire.

The Aquarea Monobloc is extremely energy efficient with a COP of 5.08 for the new 5kW range, is very quiet in operation and offers a sustainable alternative to traditional boilers with zero emissions at point of use and a lower carbon cost than mains gas, oil, LPG and direct electric. All residents will benefit from reduced heating and hot water bills.

Panasonic distributor Oceanair installed the heat pumps. Tony Holland, southern area account manager for Oceanair says: “Following the decision to go with the Panasonic systems, we had various meetings with all parties to agree on all aspects of choosing the correctly sized system and position of each individual install at Spire View, deliveries to suit the progress of the development and full training for all the engineers working on this side of the project.”

The Aquarea Monobloc line-up can maintain the heat pump output capacity until -15oC outdoor temperature without the help of an electrical booster heater. The range is designed and produced by Panasonic and among the technologies listed on the International Energy Agency (IEA) Blue Map, whose goal is to reduce CO2 emissions to half the levels emitted in 2005, by the year 2050.
