Leading heating appliance manufacturer, Ideal Heating, has unveiled its new domestic heat pump range for new-build, social housing and retrofit homes.
With options to suit households of any size, the Alfea Heat Pump has been expertly designed to provide optimum comfort, reliability and efficiency.
The Alfea combines a quiet, compact heat pump, an industry leading hot water cylinder, which the company claims has the fastest reheat times on the market, and a simple and easy to use thermostat.
The compact outdoor unit can be located up to 30 metres away from the building, whilst design elements of the indoor unit, including an integrated buffer tank and expansion vessel, help to save space inside.
The Alfea has been designed with intuitive control and intelligent weather compensation, which monitors internal and external temperatures, making it easy to use while keeping households warm throughout the year.
High efficiency ratings and an accreditation by quality assurance scheme, MCS, mean the Alfea helps to make homes greener and keep running costs low.
For installers, installation and set-up have been designed to be fast and simple, with Ideal’s specialist engineer teams on hand to support the entire process. This complete UK-wide wrap-around service includes expert training and technical advice for installers on design and specification as well as service and maintenance.
Elizabeth Wilkinson, Head of Domestic Product Management at Ideal Heating, said: “As a much-loved British boiler manufacturer, we have spent more than a century building a reputation for quality, reliability and innovation, which is underpinned by great service. By bringing the Alfea to the UK market, we’ve been able to combine the heat pump expertise of our parent company, Groupe Atlantic, with our in-depth knowledge of heating and UK-wide reach to meet the needs of our customers.
“We believe in a sustainable future and understand that our role in the heating industry means we are well placed to transition our customers to greener heating solutions that are simple, reliable and affordable. In the Alfea we provide a highly versatile product, the comprehensive end-to-end support and expert training required to help housing associations and new-build developers install and maintain a low carbon heating solution.”
