Samsung has announced the UK launch of the company’s most advanced air source heat pump to date,. The EHS Mono HT Quiet is the company’s next generation high temperature, low noise heat pump.
With the heat pump market growing by 64% between 2020 and 2021, it’s clear demand is increasing in the UK’s residential renovation market. Samsung has brought a durable and sleek low carbon heating solution to the sector which is designed to disrupt the status quo and showcase how sustainable heating systems can co-exist with the latest in architectural design and innovation.
With so many homes in the UK using radiators which require hot water temperatures of 65°C or more to heat rooms effectively, there’s been a perception that heat pumps (which normally operate at temperatures between 40°C - 60°C) won’t suffice. However, with Samsung’s EHS Mono HT Quiet, which can consistently provide hot water of up to 70°C for domestic heating purposes, older residential spaces that have been heated by gas boilers now have a viable way to transition to heat pumps.
Commenting on the launch, Wim Vangeenberghe, president, Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe said: “With the Future Homes Standard requiring new build homes in the UK to be future proofed with low carbon heating by 2025, change is afoot and we’re likely to see an acceleration in the switch from fossil fuel heating systems to more energy efficient heat pumps. High temperature heat pumps are presenting an interesting alternative for homeowners looking to move away from traditional heating solutions, such as gas boilers, without compromising on performance. With the launch of the new EHS Mono HT Quiet, we’re proud to offer the UK market an innovative low carbon heating solution that can help them take that important step forward.”
