Mitsubishi and Daikin Accredited Heat Pump Suppliers
We believe in providing the best in class heat pumps to our clients and to support this mission we have become accredited business solutions partners with Mitsubishi Electric and Daikin.
Having these two leading heat pump manufacturers as supply partners ensures that we can design and specify the perfect solution for energy-efficient and eco-friendly climate control. Each manufacturer has unique qualities that suit particular challenges and we can use either one manufacturer or a mix of the two to provide the ultimate solution to your heating, cooling or ventilation needs.
Why Air Source Heat Pumps?
With the high focus on renewable and low carbon heat sources and the governments phasing out of gas boilers by 2025, air-source heat pumps have been getting much more attention in the UK in recent years as an eco-friendly alternative to boilers. Heat pumps such as the Mitsubishi Ecodan heat pumps or the Daikin Altherma system both offer a renewable solution to gas boilers.
There are two types of air-source heat pumps: Air-to-Air and Air-to-Water.
Air-to-Air Heat Pumps
Air-to-air heat pumps, as the term suggests, only heat air and not water. These heat pumps need an indoor air-handling unit such as a high wall split unit to circulate the warm air to heat the property. These heat pumps do not heat water or act as a boiler replacement and cannot power radiators or other wet heating systems such as underfloor heating (UFH).
Air-to-Water Heat Pumps
Air-to-water heat pumps absorb heat from the air using the outside unit and then transfers this heat into the water. This water is then stored in thermal storage units and distributed throughout the property. This is the most energy-efficient replacement for a gas boiler and the most popular model of heat pumps in the UK. Air-to-Water heat pumps can provide hot water for space heating via UFH or radiators as well as hot water for bathing and other domestic uses.
The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI)
Aura AC can help you to take advantage of the UK Governments Domestic or Non-Domestic Renewable Heat Incentives. This government financial incentive pays you for every unit of electricity you use on renewable heating. The current rates are £0.1071 for (domestic) and £0.2810 (commercial) per kWh, up to a cap of 30,000 kWh (per year?). (These quoted tariff rates are for air source heat pumps only.)
We have a vast range of commercial and non-commercial experience in specifying systems to achieve the best outcome for our customers in ongoing cost as well as making the most of government subsidies and assistance.
