A new air source heat pump that works ‘silently’ will provide five times more heat per year than an electric heater, but with the same energy consumption, its developers say.

NIBE Energy Systems’ new heat pump has an optimised seasonal performance factor (a measure of how energy efficient a heat pump is), and offers a high supply temperature of up to 75°C. Even at an outdoor temperature near –25°C, it still delivers up to 65°C.
