Calorex AW9002 domestic Heat Pump
Low carbon solutions for heating and hot water.
Saving energy comes naturally to us. The sustainable heating solution for today and tomorrow.
Home heating with lashings of hot water. Whether your concerns are for the environment or your fuel bill,sustainable heating offers benefits for both. Incredibly, domestic heating accounts for almost 30% of all carbon emissions in the UK. Heat pumps are proven to reduce emissions by an average of 50% compared to fossil fuel boilers or electric heating, making them the most effective way of reducing the impact on both the environment and domestic fuel costs. Fitting a heat pump will help you, the homeowner, significantly reduce your energy bills as it can deliver up to 4kW of useful heat for every 1kW of energy needed to run it. Heat pumps also help to preserve the dwindling supplies of ever more expensive fossil fuels as they make the most of the free energy from the sun.
HEAT PUMPS CAN BE POWERED BY RENEWABLE ENERGY SUCH AS SOLAR AND WIND POWER
How do domestic low carbonheat pumps work?Up to 400% efficient. A heat pump extracts the heat from solar energy stored in the ground or in the air and concentrates it for use in a domestic heating system. It acts like a fridge in reverse. Conventional refrigeration technology absorbs the heat from the ground or air into a refrigerant, which is then compressed to raise its temperature.
A heat exchanger then takes out the heat and uses it in the heating system to provide warmth and hot water. Domestic heat pumps have been used in Europe for many years where they are a tried and tested worm of high efficiency low cost heating.
Calorex heat pumps are charged with non-toxic, bio-degradable, CFC-free refrigerant, which has no detrimental impact on the earth’s protective ozone layer.
Calorex heat pumps - designed and manufactured in the UK.
Calorex has been manufacturing heat pumps in the UK for over 30 years and has unrivalled experience and expertise in heat pump technology.
More domestic installations have been supplied by Calorex than by any other manufacturer. Our range of ground and air source heat pumps has been developed specifically for UK housing, climate conditions and heating system designs. As well as efficiently heating your home, Calorex heat pumps are uniquely designed to supply domestic hot water at 65°C, without the need for electric heating back up. Heating and hot water are managed by a standard central heating programmer with a room thermostat controlling the heat output in exactly the same way as with a conventional boiler.
Legislation and funding support
Most planning application approvalsnow require houses to be built to code levels 3 or 4 of the new Code for Sustainable Homes. This enforces substantial improvements in energy efficiency over and above Building Regulations Part L. Field trials show that code level 3 can be achieved with a Calorex air source heat pump and level 4 with a Calorex ground source heat pump with no change to the basic structure of the building.The installation of ground source heat pumps can qualify for funding support of up to 80% under the Carbon Emissions Reduction Target (CERT) and Low Carbon Building Programme (LCBP) schemes. The Calorex sales office can arrange for funding support quotes with E.ON who is a nominated supplier under these schemes. Calorex air source heat pumps now also qualify as a renewable energy source under European legislation. Private householders can apply for funding.

Air source heat pump with existing boiler
Whilst Calorex heat pumps can be sized to provide your total heating and hot water requirement, it is often better with existing properties to link a heat pump into the system whilst retaining the back-up of the existing boiler. The heat pump is sized to provide a variable proportion of the annual heating requirement (say 85%) with the existing boiler integrated to deliver the balance on the coldest days.
Benefits of air source:
• Lower capital cost.
• Operational to -15 °C.
• Reverse cycle defrost only 4 minutes per hour.
• Ideal for multi-storey apartment buildings.
• For stand-alone use (monovalent)or integration with existing heating systems (bivalent).
