New heat pump featuring R290 to revolutionise home heating

EHS Mono R290

Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe (SEACE) has launched a pioneering product, the EHS Mono R290 heat pump, in the UK.

Unveiled earlier this year at InstallerSHOW in the NEC, Birmingham, the EHS Mono R290 has a remarkably low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 3 (compared to the GWP of other refrigerant technologies such as R32 (675)). It provides a consistent supply of high hot water temperature, reaching up to 75°C , making the range ideal for renovations and retrofits.

Moreover, the EHS Mono R290 boasts an enlarged integral plate heat exchanger capable of transferring more heat at once compared to a conventional outdoor unit, thanks to a heat transfer area of up to 39% larger. It boasts a reliable heating performance, enabling it to deliver a 100% heating performance in temperatures as low as -10°C. It also enables the production of Domestic Hot Water (DHW) at 70°C when the outdoor temperature is -10 to 43°C ambient temperature without using the booster heater, thus saving energy while producing DHW on hot summer days.

Heating Product Manager in the UK for Samsung Climate Solutions, Joe Raftery, said: “The internal components of the unit have been adapted when compared to a standard R32 monobloc heat pump to support the separation of the R290 refrigerant and the rest of the system. Designed to work seamlessly with R290, homeowners and installers alike will appreciate the ease of operation of this unit.”

The EHS Mono outdoor unit is designed for simple installation, service and maintenance. The internal components of the heat pump can be accessed through the side panel, which can be removed by simply loosening three screws. This results in significant time and effort saving during the installation, maintenance and servicing procedures.

Styled in a dark grey colour, the product is available in a range of capacities for varying requirements – 5, 8, 12, and 16kW. All the units are single fan, but notably, the 5 and 8kW units are only 850mm in height.

The new range of heat pumps can also be connected to SmartThings Energy which is compatible with voice assistants like Bixby, Google Home and Amazon Alexa and a wide range of devices.
