New heat pump from Andrews
The new AMBIflo air source heat pump from Andrews Water Heaters builds on an already impressive portfolio of LZC (Low to Zero Carbon) technologies and high efficiency water heating products. AMBIflo offers a solution for pre-heating mains cold water to support gas-fired water heaters in the production of domestic hot water. As a result, these units can significantly reduce carbon emissions and running costs within commercial and industrial buildings.
AMBIflo is now available in two outputs, 16kW and 20kW. Each unit has a CoP (Co-efficient of Performance) of 3.9 and 3.2 respectively, when measured with an ambient air temperature of 2°C and a water temperature of 35°C. These measurements improve still further when the ambient air temperature increases to 7°C, whereby these models offer a CoP of 4.6 and 3.6 respectively.
Air source heat pumps capture the heat from the ambient air and use this to initiate and sustain a refrigeration cycle. Each AMBIflo unit consists of four main components; the evaporator, compressor, condenser and expansion valve.
