Hybrid heat pump: combining gas and heat pump for heating, cooling and hot water
A combination of air-to-water heat pump technology with gas condensing technology.
Depending on outdoor temperature, energy prices and internal heat load, the system always selects the most economical mode to operate.
Ideal for renovations.
Low running costs for space heating
The hybrid heat pump always selects the most economical operation mode: heat pump or condensing boiler or both simultaneously. This results in 35% more heating efficiency.
Low running costs for domestic hot water
Condensing boiler technology converts waste energy from the flue gases into usable heat, virtually without loss. This technology increases efficiency up to 15% compared to traditional gas condensing boilers.
Limited investment cost
There is no need to replace the existing radiators (up to 80°C) and pipe work.
Ideal for renovation
The gas boiler can be installed without the heat pump in the early stages, to quickly restart heating in the case of a breakdown
Easy & Fast installation
The hybrid heat pump is delivered as three main components:
- Gas condensing boiler
- Heat pump indoor module
- Heat pump outdoor unit
This makes it easier to handle and manipulate, and also easier to install as weight and dimensions per component are smaller than when assembled.
The 2-in-1 indoor unit: All the connections are at the bottom and all the components can be accessed from the front, which makes the unit easy to service and maintain.
The hybrid heat pump combines heat pump technology with gas condensing technology.
- Air-to-water heat pump
An air-to-water heat pump uses a sustainable energy source: air. It extracts free heat from the air and pumps it to a higher temperature level in a closed loop containing a refrigerant. This heat is transferred to your home’s central heating distribution system via a heat exchanger.
Heat pump operation is optimised at moderate outdoor temperatures.
- Gas condensing boiler
A condensing boiler burns gas to heat up the water. Energy from the flue gases is used to pre-heat the incoming cold water. This way, there is virtually no energy loss, which is good for both the environment and your wallet.
When outdoor temperatures are dropping drastically, it is more efficient to switch to gas operation.
- Hybrid operation
In hybrid operation, both the gas boiler and heat pump operate at the same time in the most economical way. This occurs when a high heat load is required or to achieve the highest efficiencies at the current conditions. The exact time to switch-over from heat pump operation to hybrid operation depends on the house characteristics, energy prices, the requested indoor temperature setting and the outdoor temperature.
