The greenest of the green from Vaillant

Sustainability Thu, May 21, 2020 4:28 PM

With the impact of the Future Homes Standard to include the phasing out of fossil fuel heating in new build homes by 2025,

Vaillant has expanded its portfolio of renewable technologies with a new heat pump system to help support the UK’s decarbonisation journey.

Coming in 2020, aroTHERM plus is Vaillant’s next generation heat pump developed in-house using the natural refrigerant R290, which allows Vaillant, its installers and end users to prepared for a sustainable future.

R290 is a natural refrigerant with a low Global Warming Potential of 3. Fulfilling the next nearly zero-energy buildings (NZEB) requirements and with an ErP rating of A+++, the aroTHERM plus is one of the greenest heat pumps on the market, helping end users reduce their carbon footprints.

Greater comfort levels can also be achieved with R290 as it enables aroTHERM plus to run at a higher flow temperature of up to 75°C, providing 25% more useable hot water and removing the need for an electric immersion heater for the legionella cycle.

Significant energy savings are also possible thanks to the efficiencies of the aroTHERM plus; testing has seen up to a 43% saving when replacing oil or LPG heaters in retrofit projects. It is also one of the quietest heat pumps on the market with sound power as low as 54dBa.

Launching alongside the aroTHERM plus is Vaillant’s brand new indoor unit, uniTOWER. Containing an integrated hot water cylinder and hydraulic components, it is pre-wired for fast and easy installation. With no refrigerant certification required, the connection of both the aroTHERM plus and uniTOWER modules can be completed in a single day with minimal manpower, much to the delight of customers.

John Bailey, head of commercial & renewable systems at Vaillant, says: “We are delighted to add the aroTHERM plus air source heat pump to our portfolio in 2020. It is an important time for the UK heating market, the pressure is on to find a range of renewable solutions that can effectively and efficiently heat our homes and help the nation decarbonise in the years ahead.

“The use of natural refrigerant is an example of how Vaillant is striving to lead the market with innovative solutions that not only offer outstanding performance characteristics, but also satisfy what is a rapidly changing regulatory landscape.

“Together with ease of installation, almost silent operation and proven energy savings when compared with other solutions, the aroTHERM plus is set to take the heat pump and renewables market to the next level.”
