Right outside the door exists an abundance of free energy – air. The fact is that all air has energy irrespective of its temperature.The ES range of heat pumps are designed to capture and utilise this energy to its maximum potential.
While heat pumps are somewhat of a new concept to many, in Sweden heat pump technology has been used for more than 30 years in temperatures below -20’C.
The ES heat pump range and associated products have been developed in the harsh Scandinavian climate. Owing to this ES heat pumps exhibit many technological advances which yield exceptional benefits when operating in more temperate climates.
All ES heat pumps are powered by modulating inverter compressors. ES inverter technology automatically modulates the power consumption of the unit depending on external and internal temperatures. In this way the unit will only produce exactly what is required by the building at any one time. This technology dramatically reduces energy consumption while ensuring maximum comfort within the building.
All ES heat pumps are of split design, i.e. outdoor and indoor units. The outdoor unit extracts energy from the air, transfers it to refrigerant gas 410A which is then compressed into a high temperature vapour. This refrigerant passes to the indoor unit where its heat is transferred into the heating water which in turn is distributed to the heating system. This format increases the efficiencies by up to 25% over the heating season.
With the relative humidity in temperate climates defrosting becomes a major issue for all heat pumps. The split design of all our heat pumps greatly reduces frost build up. ES heat pumps have a specialized defrosting program to minimize defrosting time. This defrosting cycle does not use electric heaters. In addition our outdoor heat exchangers are coated with nanoparticles to prevent ice formation. This nano coating also facilitates fast and effective defrosting which significantly increases the real life efficiencies of the heat pump especially during the winter months.
The correct sizing of a heat pump is of the utmost importance. Under sizing of a heat pump will result in an extremely ineffective system which will not only result in high energy bills but will never meet the full requirements of the building. For this reason our in house technical team will size each heat pump on a case by case basis and provide detailed plumbing and electrical installation schematics with each unit supplied.
Es Heat Pumps come in a variety of sizes, 6, 9, 11, 13 & 20 kW, all of which only require single phase electrical supply. In addition all and any of these heat pumps can be combined and sequenced using our bespoke technology allowing for installations of any size.
