Fan convectors are served by ground-source heat pump

Fan convector meets ground-source heat pump with this Ecovector unit from Smith’s Environmental Products.
Two Ecovector heating units from Smith’s Environmental Products installed in the showroom of the Cotswold Efficient Energy Centre are served by a ground-source heat pump. The building is a retrofit, and underfloor heating could not be used. The centre has an array of solar systems and ground- and air-source heat pumps. It also supplies gas and oil heating systems, condensing boilers and unvented water systems. The Ecovectors were installed by AJ Buchan Ltd. The flat-fronted Ecovector is designed along the lines of a low-surface-temperature radiator and operated by an almost quiet twin-speed fan. Its heat exchanger uses just 5% of the water required for a radiator of equivalent output. It draws in air from above and distributed heat from the floor upwards, said to be a first for any fan convector.
