Office building cuts carbon emissions with 200 kW air-source heat pump

A 200 kW packaged air-source heat pump is providing the heating for a new serviced office building of Arena Business Centre at Poole. It offers 16 mezzanine studios ranging from 60 to 130 m2, and Arena was looking for a heating solution that would be cost effective and efficient, with low carbon emissions. ICS Heat Pump Technology recommended a heat pump made by DeLonghi-Climaveneta. The heat pump installed has an integral buffer vessel and pump unit to circulate hot water to the underfloor heating system. Scroll compressors are efficient and quiet. The main challenge for ICS was in providing for Arena the most efficient, reliable and value-for-money package. Arena will receive planned maintenance to ensure the equipment performs well throughout its lifetime. Sharron Domanska, operations director for Arena Business Centres, says, ‘We are extremely pleased with the performance and efficiency of the heat pump technology. Our previous centres are conventionally heated. This new technology will deliver on a number of areas, including energy savings and enable us to reduce our carbon footprint. We will look to introduce this technology into our new centres going forward.’
