Danfoss sees a demand for its latest air source heat pump

Danfoss Heat Pumps has seen an increasing demand for its latest air source heat pump since the product was launched onto the market last year.
A housing developer in Stratford-upon-Avon has chosen to install air source heat pumps in a development comprising of six luxury family homes. Located in rural Warwickshire the four bedroomed properties were subject to planning requirements that stipulated a renewable energy source for heating was incorporated into the development.
Keith Greenall, managing director of Temple Oak Ltd instructed local renewable energy specialist Stratford Energy Solutions to carry out the heat pump installation.
“I began to look into air source heat pump technology for this development because it was a planning requirement that we included a renewable energy source,” commented Keith. “I have been very pleased with the service provided by Stratford Energy Solutions and I expect to be using this type of heat pump again in future developments.”
With one of the lowest noise levels on the market, the Danfoss DHP-AQ heat pump was chosen because disturbance for homeowners and neighbours would be minimal. Every home features a 9kW DHP-AQ air source heat pump, which supplies an underfloor heating system and provides hot water requirements.
The heat pumps, which have been developed in Scandinavia, can operate in temperatures as low as -20°C and also benefit from a state-of-the-art defrosting technology which enables the heat pumps to function when the weather is really cold.
Chris Dale, Director of Danfoss Heat Pumps UK said housing developers had show a huge amount of interest in their latest heat pump:
“Today’s home buyers are increasingly aware of the need to minimise their carbon footprint, so an air source heat pump can really set a property apart from others on the market. Where new properties are located off the gas grid as with this development, an air source heat pump is a very green alternative.”
