Air-to-water heat pumps are among the most efficient heat sources available for warm water central heating. It is the same refrigeration technology that most Kiwi’s are used to with the air-to-air heat pumps that are so popular. Air-to-water heat pumps put the energy into the water that is used in the warm water central heating system rather than blowing air around the home.
If you want to reduce your carbon footprint and increase your central heating energy efficiency, an air-to-water heat pump is an absolute must. It's a simple and eco-friendly choice for your home. Air-to-water heat pumps are electrical appliances that get the most value from a unit of electricity.
Air-to-Water Heat pumps can be used for underfloor or radiator systems but are particularly suited to low-temperature underfloor systems. Domestic hot water can also be produced via a cylinder connected to the system that has a coil inside of it which transfers the heat from your heat pump to your domestic water.
