Pansonic Air to Water Heat Pumps

The Panasonic Aquarea air to water heat pump offers homeowner comfort, efficiency and low energy costs while being clean, safe and environmentally friendly.  With more than 60 years of experience, selling to more than 120 countries around the world, Panasonic is unquestionably one of the leaders in the heating and cooling sector.

Panasonic air to water heat pumps are innovative low-energy systems, designed to provide ideal temperatures and hot water in the home, even with extreme outdoor temperatures or for retrofit projects where a higher water output temperature is required.

Based on air to water heat pump technology, Aquarea is highly efficient and environmentally friendly. It captures heat energy from the ambient air and transfers it to heat the water needed to warm your home, for domestic hot water and even to cool the house if required. In this way, up to 80% of the heat energy required is taken from the ambient air - even in extremely low temperatures.

Key Features

  • Extremely high efficiency with a COP of up to 5.33*
  • ErP efficiency rating
    • A++ for medium temperature applications (radiators ErP 55°C)
    • A++ for low temperature applications (floor heating ErP 35°C)
    • 3 & 5kW High Performance models are A+++
  • Smart Cloud facilities easy and powerful remote control, monitoring and energy management (using an optional interface)
  • Large range of efficient tanks for domestic hot water storage
  • Highly reliable thanks to the quality of all components, including the compressor, which are developed and manufactured by Panasonic
  • All Aquarea heat pumps can also be connected to a solar thermal or PV system in order to further increase efficiency
  • Easy installation - air source heat pumps are simple to install. They do not require a chimney, gas connection, oil or LPG tank. All that is required is a power supply connection
  • Smart Bivalent operation will combine different heat sources and use the most appropriate source, depending on user’s preferences and efficiency
  • Cascade operation possible for larger installations

*COP (Coefficient of Performance) refers to the ratio of energy used by the Heat Pump to the energy actually input into the water, for example a unit with a COP of 5.08 or 500% will supply 5 kilowatts of energy into water for every 1 kilowatt of electrical power it consumes. In order to maintain this efficiency heat pumps operate at lower temperatures.

Aquarea Heat Pump Models

The Aquarea offers three different alternative technical solutions depending on the property requirements and each is available in a range of ouputs ensuring there is a solution to meet any requirement.  Our technical team will advise on the best option for each specific property and will size it accordingly.

  1. Aquarea High Performance - For new installations and low consumption homes
  2. Aquarea T-CAP - For extremely low temperatures, refurbishment and innovation
  3. Aquarea HT - For a house with old high-temperature radiators

The DHW Stand Alone is a domestic Hot Water tank with built-in heat pump which is also available as a solution where heating water exclusively is required.

Heat Pump Formats

The heat pump’s outdoor unit extracts heat energy from the air and transfers this to the refrigerant in the system which is then compressed to raise the temperature. This heat from the raised temperature refrigerant is transferred  via a heat exchanger to the heating or hot water depending on requirements. This transfer can be completed within the outdoor unit in Mono-Bloc systems or in the case of a Bi Bloc or All in One system refrigerant pipe connects to an indoor unit and the transfer of heat to water is completed in the indoor unit.

Mono Bloc

A Mono-Bloc air to water heat pump consists of a single outside unit that contains a heat exchanger, compressor and the heat exchanger. In this Mono-Bloc unit the heat is extracted from the air, transfered to the refrigerant, the refrigerant is compressed up to a higher temperature and the heat from the refrigerant is passed to the water that circulates to and from the heating and hot water system inside the house. This is ideal when space inside the house is restricted.

Bi Bloc or Split

A Bi-Bloc or split is a two part air to water heat pump which consists of an outdoor unit, with heat exchanger, fan unit and compressor connected by refrigerant pipe to an indoor unit, with heat exchanger. The outdoor unit extracts the heat from the air and passes this heat energy to the refrigerant in the system. The refrigerant is compressed up to a high temperature and is circulated to the indoor unit which has a heat exchanger that takes the high temperature heat from the refrigerant and passes it to the water that circulates to the heating and hot water system. Installation requires a refrigerant engineer.

All in One Bi Bloc

Ideal for small spaces, this system combines the indoor unit with a compact 185 litre stainless steel domestic hot water storage tank. Based on the Bi-Bloc model the outdoor unit is connected to the indoor All in One unit using piping charged with refrigerant.

The indoor unit has an improved square design with white goods finish that is designed to be compact and save space. It is also designed to be easy to install and maintain with easy access piping and electrical connections. It comes with an integrated remote controlled which can be installed up to 50m from the indoor unit and can function as a room thermostat.

Panasonic Aquarea Smart Cloud

The Aquarea Smart Cloud from Panasonic facilitates easy and powerful remote control, monitoring and energy management from anywhere in the world.

The Aquarea Smart Cloud is much more than a simple thermostat for switching a heating device on or off via the internet. It is a powerful and intuitive service for remotely controlling the full range of heating and hot water functions, including monitoring energy consumption. It is a way to enhance your Aquarea, making it even smarter to maximise your comfort and minimise your energy bills and CO2 emissions.

*Available for H generation models and later
