This is a low maintenance product with controls which are easy for the end user to use and understand.

How does ecodan work?

Ecodan is an air source heat pump and the technology inside it is very similar to that of a domestic fridge - transferring heat from one place to another - the back of your fridge is warm because it is removing heat from inside the fridge out into the room.

In the case of the Ecodan heat pump, it removes warmth from the air outside and transfers it inside the home to heat radiators and provide hot water.

An ecodan heat pump converts 1kW of electricity into 3 or 4kW of useful heat for the home, maximising efficiency all year round. Even on the coldest days, ecodan harvests renewable heat energy from the outdoor air and transfers it inside the home to heat radiators and provide hot water.

Traditional oil-fired boiler systems work by producing on-off bursts of heat to maintain the desired room temperature. ecodan works much more efficiently by supplying hot water to the radiators at a lower, yet more constant temperature, giving you a more controlled level of warmth plus all the hot water you need.

ecodan is designed to work at optimum efficiency whatever the weather. Able to work efficiently with outside temperatures even as low as -20°c.

Dual Systems

Heat pumps can also be used in a dual full bivalent heating systems (e.g. heat pump combined with oil boiler). For more information check out our Dual full Bivalent Heating Systems page here.
