Hitachi release new heat pump product line up

Hitachi, established in Japan in 1910, pride themselves on their commitment to developing high quality, efficient, and reliable heating and air-conditioning solutions. Despite becoming a worldwide industrial corporation over the last hundred years, Hitachi are a relatively new player to the UK market. They offer a range of Air Source Heap Pumps which includes the Yutaki-M (a Monobloc), the Yutaki-S (a split unit) and the Yutaki-S80 (a high temperature unit).


Specifically designed for the UK market, the new all-in-one Yutaki-SCombi, is the fourth product in the range. The integrated indoor unit has a built-in 200 or 260L stainless steel hot water cylinder as well as the main hydraulic components such as the pump, filter and back up heater. The unit is pre-plumbed and pre-wired, simplifying the installation and reducing the internal space required. The unit also boasts a newly designed controller. The new multi-function wired remote control is compatible with all Yutaki models, meaning a single menu for all units with a dedicated installer view, wizard start-up configuration and a more intuitive menu for quick and simple commissioning. The controller also logs alarm history to assist engineers with troubleshooting. All models have been supplied with a new Cooling Kit accessory to enable both heating and cooling.

       

The new Yutaki product line up has been redesigned to meet the needs of end users and installers. These units now offer improved performance figures, with the units now having higher COPs, better seasonal efficiencies, and higher capacities. Other benefits of the Yutaki range include the use of common components, common outdoor units, and simplified designs to benefit both end users and installers. The introduction of common components and controllers minimalise product training requirements and reduces the need for carrying spares. The units are now designed for an easier installation; they are more compact for small installation spaces and are lighter for easier handling.


All Hitachi air source heat pumps are MCS approved and eligible are for the domestic and non-domestic RHI. These heat pumps all have domestic hot water Legionella Protection and come with a 5-year warranty as standard.

For more information about the Yutaki range, contact approved distributor Bublshop on 01747 826900 or email sales@bublshop.co.uk.

UK Government release response to RHI consultation

The Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) was introduced to encourage the UK to transition to low-carbon heating. The incentive scheme provides financial incentive to households and non-domestic consumers to encourage the move from conventional heating options to low-carbon alternatives.

The UK Government have proposed to implement increases in the tariffs in Spring 2017 (subject to parliamentary approval). RHI will remain available on Air Source, Ground Source, and Biomass installations. The increased tariff will be applicable to participants who apply for the scheme on or after 14 December for new installations, however the increased tariff will not come into effect until the regulations come into force.

Air Source Heat Pump 10.02 pence per kilowatt-hour (p/kWh)
Ground Source Heat Pump 19.55p/kWh
Biomass installations 6.44p/kWh

 

In addition to the tariff increases, heat demand limits will be introduced. These limits will be set at: 20,000kWh for Air Source Heat Pumps, 25,000kWh for biomass boilers and stoves and 30,000kWh for Ground Source Heat Pumps. However, these limits will not disqualify larger properties with higher heat demands from applying, it just will cap the amount of RHI available. There will be no heat demand limit for solar thermal.

An electricity meter will be required to be installed on all new air and ground source heat pumps applying for support under the scheme. However, the payments will still be made based on deemed heating requirements.

Winter is fast approaching, which means it's time to test the heating.
Winter is fast approaching, which means it's time to test the heating.

Research suggests that 1 in 5 boilers won’t survive the winter (Uswitch, 2013) and so your customers might be thinking of updating their hot water heating systems. It is important that you provide them with the right cylinder to provide them with adequate hot water all winter long.

At Bublshop we can help with all the design and specification queries you have. Send us over your plans with details of the property, the current main source of energy and what renewable source you are planning to install. We will then do the heat loss calculations for the project and give recommendations of which equipment we think is most suitable.

We supply all your renewable needs from heap pumps, accessories and parts at competitive prices.

Bublshop present the Sanden CO2 Heat pump

We recently visited a dairy farm to discover the benefits of installing a Sanden COHeat Pump. 

Generating large volumes of hot water can be expensive for any business, especially in off grid areas. This high efficiency hot water heat pump system uses COrefrigerant technology and heats water to 65oC without using electrical back up heaters. 

Watch the video to find out more.
