Ideal Heating unveils new R290 heat pump  

Ideal Heating has lifted the lid on its latest heat pump as it expands its low carbon heating solutions. 

The company says its HP290 monobloc heat pump is designed to provide efficient, low carbon heating and hot water throughout the year. 

It is the first domestic heat pump from Ideal Heating to run on the R290 refrigerant, which has low environmental impact and global warming potential. 

When paired with Ideal’s pre-plumbed hot water cylinder and Halo Lite RF thermostat it provides a low carbon heating package. 

Lizzie Wilkinson, Product Director (Domestic) at Ideal Heating, said: “Our HP290 heat pump follows many of the same principles as our popular Logic Air. In all of our products, we want installers to enjoy working with them, and for them to be simple to install, maintain and service. 

“What’s more, we know the end user experience is vitally important, and that’s why we provide what we genuinely believe is industry-leading levels of support. It means if you need any advice or help with the heat pump, you can receive it quickly and easily. 

“When you put all of that together, and also factor in the impressive levels of performance and efficiency the HP290 offers, we believe this is powerful and attractive new proposition for the domestic market.” 

The HP290 features a SCOP (seasonal coefficient of performance) rating of more than 500%.  

The HP290 control box acts as the hub for the system and brings all of the electrical components together in one central location.  

Phil Scrafton, Heat Pump Technical Manager, said: “At Ideal Heating, we pride ourselves on our level of customer support.  

“Our specialist heat pump team is out and across the UK, providing a rapid response to any enquiries. We also have a fast and effective remote service team, who can resolve the majority of questions either over the phone or a video call. 

“We’ve built a reputation in the industry for unrivalled customer support. With our new HP290 heat pump, our customers can be sure to receive the same high level of service they have always depended on.” 

For installers looking to move into the heat pump market for the first time, Ideal Heating’s Expert Academy training arm offers a range of courses. The company’s National Training and Technology Centre in East Yorkshire is the main site for its nationwide operations, and the company has recently opened a new centre, near Luton, to serve the South of England.
