Panasonic - Compact Monobloc Aquarea Heat Pump
Panasonic has designed the compact Aquarea Monobloc air-to-water heat pump specifically for the UK market. The heat pump, available in 6 and 9kW versions, is for houses where space is at a premium as the Mono-bloc design effectively combines the outdoor and indoor units into one package. Independent tests have shown the heat pumps to have a COP of 4.41 at 7°C. The enclosure contains all components within a single unit: heat exchanger; three-speed hot water circulator, 6 litre expansion vessel; safety valve; pressure gauge and a 3 kW electrical heater to provide back-up heat in extreme cold weather.
