Johnson Controls has introduced the YORK YLPA heat pump, which combines optimal energy efficiency with an extremely quiet operation. The YORK YLPA is Johnson Controls’ third generation of scroll heat pumps. Continuous enhancements to the heat pump’s design has led to an even higher performance, whilst maintaining its reliability.
The incorporation of multiple scroll compressors results in high full-load efficiency, exceeding the requirements of the Eurovent A-Class certification programme in both cooling and heating modes. The operation at part-load exceeds full-load efficiency, driving down operating costs and further increasing efficiency.
Efficiency gains also result from minimising the impact of the defrost cycle. The extended envelope enables operation down to -10°C, with production of hot water temperature above 45°C, thus minimising the need for operating a support boiler.
The YLPA’s excellent efficiency performance goes hand in hand with strong sound performance, running at sound levels as low as 57dBA. It has been specifically designed for low sound operation by arranging all the compressors together in one acoustically sealed enclosure. The sound reduction configurations can be tailored to customers’ specific needs.
