Packaged Cylinder Air Source Heat Pumps
To ensure that you get the best performance and enjoy the full range of benefits that Ecodan has to offer, we recommend you install an approved packaged solution. We have carried out extensive research and development to ensure we can maximise Ecodan’s unique performance. To take full advantage of Ecodan, install an approved packaged system that teams Ecodan with the ideal water storage cylinder and perfect control system.
Features and Benefits:
- Factory assembled for reliability – reduces call-backs and delays.
- Simplified on site installation – up to 70% quicker to install than third party non pre-assembled systems.
- Consistent electrical and plumbing layout, with a neat and tidy finish.
- Plug in connections for all controls.
- No tanks required in roof space.
- ISO 9001:2008 quality assured.
- Three year warranty.
There are two options of Packaged Cylinder Solutions
Stand Alone Air Source Heat Pump Systems
Whilst we recommend using an approved packaged system, Ecodan will also work with most other leading brands of water storage cylinders and controls. The space heating ability will operate in much the same way as with the packaged system, but it’s important to note that the production of hot water may vary. We therefore recommend that careful consideration is given to the specification of the hot water storage cylinder, in order to maintain optimum efficiency of the water heating cycle.
To allow the home owner to continue to operate both their central heating and hot water time clocking using a commonly available two-channel controller, we have introduced the Flow Temperature Controller (FTC2) interface. In a Space Heating mode the FTC2 will ensure that Ecodan operates at optimum efficiency, varying the flow temperature to either the radiator or under floor heating system to meet a homes heating requirements.
In a Water Heating mode the FTC2 will allow the Ecodan to work with leading brands of water storage tanks. It is, however, important to consider that the overall performance of the system in Water Heating mode will be very dependant on the thermal performance of the storage tank’s heat exchanger. With the packaged systems we offer, the heat exchangers have been designed to offer an optimised performance across the whole Ecodan water flow temperature range and these performances have been tested and verified. We therefore strongly recommend that similar consideration is given to the specification of any hot water storage tank before being considered for operation with the Ecodan.
