Among the wide range of heat pumps for space heating offered by Dimplex is this air-to-water unit
Building on over 25 years’ experience in Europe, Dimplex has introduced its range of heat pumps into the UK. The company has been selected as one of only three approved suppliers of ground-source heat pumps for public-sector grants under Phase 2 of the DTI’s Low-Carbon-Buildings Programme. Chris Davis, marketing manager with Dimplex, says, ‘There is a clear need for sustainable-energy solutions that not only reduce carbon emissions but also help significantly reduce energy bills for users. Government initiatives such as Clear Skies and now the Low-Carbon-Buildings Programme, which provide grants for heat-pump installations, have also encouraged demand for this type of products.’ Dimplex indicates that these heat pumps have a COP of 4 and 50% lower carbon emissions than gas-fired heating. There are over 50 models in Dimplex’s range. Many are suitable for single-phase electricity supplies. Ground-source heat pumps have nominal heating capacities from 5 to 16 kW. Air-source heat pumps have nominal heating capacities from 5 to 28 kW; there are models for installing indoors and outdoors.
