NEW AQUAREA AIR TO WATER HEAT PUMP
Panasonic’s new Aquarea system, based on high-efficiency heat pump technology, not only heats your home and hot water, but also cools your home in summer with incredible operating performance. This creates perfect comfort whatever the weather conditions, even at outdoor temperatures as low as -20°C.
Panasonic new heat pumps are designed in response to the new demand for low consumption housing, with high efficiency and low running costs.
Why air source heat pumps?
· Reduced heating bills and maintenance costs
· Savings of up to several 1,000 EUR per year are possible
· Reduce your carbon footprint
· Simple to integrate into most heating systems
· Energy efficient alternative to oil, LPG and electric systems
· Highly compatible with other energy efficient energy sources eg solar
Panasonic’s Aquarea Heat Pump provides savings of up to 80% on heating expenses compared to electrical heaters. For example, the Aquarea 5kW system has a COP of 5,08. This is 4,08 more than a conventional electrical heating system which has a maximum COP of 1. This is equivalent to an 80%* saving. Consumption can be further reduced by connecting photovoltaic solar panels to the Aquarea system.
Three Aquarea solutions:
Aquarea High Performance for low consumption houses (3 - 16 kW)
From 3 to 16kW For a house with low temperature radiators or under-floor heating, our high performance Aquarea HP is a good solution. This solution can work as a stand-alone unit or can be combined with an existing gas- or oil-fired heating system depending on requirements.
This new solution is ideal for low consumption homes.
Aquarea T-CAP (9 - 16 kW)
If the most important aspect is to maintain nominal heating capacities even at temperatures as low as -7°C or -15°C, select the Aquarea T-CAP. This ensures that there is always enough capacity to heat the house without help from an external boiler – even at extremely low temperatures. Aquarea T-CAP always has high efficiency and
high heating capacity even at extremely low temperatures. With Aquarea T-CAP, you can always enjoy high savings.
Aquarea HT (9 - 12 kW)
For a house with traditional high-temperature radiators (such as cast iron radiators), the Aquarea HT Solution is the most appropriate as the Aquarea HT can work in output water temperatures of 65°C even at outdoor temperatures as low as -20°C. Aquarea HT is able to deliver hot water to 65°C with the Heat Pump alone.
With a Panasonic heat pump, there is no need to oversize the heat pump to reach the required capacity at low temperatures.
· Dedicated software for low consumption houses which allows the heat pump to produce hot water at 20°C. This is needed during the seasons, when a little heating is required
· No need for an additional expansion vessel, as the unit already has a 6l expansion vessel
· No buffer tank required as the Panasonic heat pump has an inverter compressor which can regulate the capacity. (Please check on the service manual the minimum volume of water needed on the circuit)
· 3kW electrical heater is included on the heat pump
· Panasonic heat pumps can work in outdoor temperatures as low as -20°C and guarantee the capacity without backup heating down to -15°C
· Panasonic heat pumps are very quiet and have a night mode program for even lower noise.
Special attention has been given to noise levels - Panasonic created a night mode to reduce the noise when it’s needed.

· Heat pump Manager with touch screen LCD.
Heat pumps - heat from nature
Heat pumps are the first choice for those who want to lower their heating bills and generate heat in a more environmentally responsible way. After all, the environment provides the heat pump with an unlimited and free supply of the energy it needs. This fully-fledged heating system needs very little power for its drives and pumps in order to make this energy available. A heat pump makes you independent of fossil fuels, and in addition, actively contributes towards reducing CO2 emissions and protecting the climate.
Simple principle, great result
A heat pump works in a similar way to a fridge – simply the other way round.
In a fridge, heat is transferred from the inside to the outside. With a heat pump, this happens exactly the other way round. Heat from the air or the ground is transferred into the living space via the heating system. Vapour from a refrigerant is compressed to increase the temperature, to make it high enough for central heating and DHW heating.
Renewable energy from ambient heat
Heat pumps use ambient heat from the water, ground or air. This ambient heat is stored solar energy or geothermal heat from below ground. Ambient heat is therefore a renewable energy, of which we have an inexhaustible supply.
Unlike fossil fuels, renewable energies have the big advantage of being able to be regenerated. In addition, ambient heat is a decentralised energy supply, which is available at all times and which can be used without the need for complex supply systems or energy monostructures.
Use with various energy sources
The best heat source for each individual case depends on local conditions and the actual heat demand. Heat pumps can use various energy sources:
- Air – practically unlimited availability; lowest investment costs
- Ground – via geothermal collector, geothermal probe or ice store; very efficient
- Water – extremely efficient; observe water quality and quantity
- Waste heat – subject to availability, volume and temperature level of the waste heat
Advantages of heat pumps
60 to 75% lower heating costs
Heat pumps obtain 3/4 of required energy free of any charge, from the environment in which you live. Soil, groundwater, and outside air store huge amounts of thermal energy which can be transformed into heating energy using heat pumps. The savings are considerable compared to other conventional heating systems. The amount of power consumed by heat pumps is notably lower than the amount of heat they generate.
Smart future investment
If you decide to install a heat pump today, you should be aware you are making an investment for the future. Its true value lies in many measurable and nonmeasurable aspects. In addition to the safety of investment, flexibility, low heating costs, comfort, and many economic and ecological benefits, a heat pump is actually an investment in your future and the future of your children.
New building, refurbishment, or heating system replacement
A heat pump is an ideal solution for heating and cooling of newly constructed or refurbished buildings, or when replacing an existing heating system. Since it operates on the principles of low-temperature heating, it is suitable for both underfloor heating and heating with wall-mounted radiators, as well as a combination of both. Heat pumps are also appropriate for rebuilt or refurbished buildings with radiator heating since new high temperature heat pumps can reach water temperatures of 80°C.
Warm in the winter, cool in the summer
Unique heat pump technology allows your heating system to heat your home during the winter and cool it during the summer without additional work or investment. The heat pump system can be used for cooling regardless of whether you use fan coils or underfloor heating.
