Considering that more smart devices are finding their ways into our lives, we must ensure we use the best in class appliances in areas involving heating, ventilation, and air conditioning systems at home. Vaillant aroTHERM is a state of the art hybrid heat pump that offers all this and much more.

Hybrid use

With the conventional air source heat pumps, many homes might not get adequately heated using these devices. This can be the case of households or buildings that are susceptible to significant heat losses.

Furthermore, homeowners seeking to continue using their boilers but seeking an alternative that cuts running costs and carbon footprints can find the aroTHERM heat pump to be an ideal solution. The Vaillant heat pump is compatible with an existing boiler set up, integrating it with one’s current central heating. I can also be installed as a new replacement for the central heating set up both quickly and easily, delivering extra energy savings.

Looking at how the Valliant aroTHERM works, its hybrid technology includes both a boiler and an air source heat pump. The component that houses the heat pump is installed on the outside of the home or office and linked to an existing heating system if present. A standard aroTHERM hybrid is made to be used along with an oil, LPG, or gas boiler. It is usually available in up to four different sizes that suit the hot water and heating requirements of various households. In some situations, it is considered necessary to change some radiators with larger models as air source heat pumps are very efficient when the heat is disbursed over a wide surface area.

Smart technology

The heat pump works by moving heat around. Not only can they be used to heat your home, but also to cool it down. Three main components make up the heat pump: an outdoor evaporator unit, an indoor condenser unit and a refrigerant, which is the part which transfers the heat between the indoor and outdoor unit.

Hybrid heat pumps are preferred over conventional pumps due to the following reasons:

  • They have reduced carbon footprints due to little reliance on fossil fuels.

  • Hybrid heat pumps are longer lasting and more durable as the heat pump, and boiler share the workload.

aroTHERM - The perks

With maximum energy savings and a reduction in the reliance on fossil fuels, most homeowners are recommended to get the aroTHERM as an eco-friendly alternative. It is also considered a perfect approach for those who may not want to part with their boiler completely as well as homes that are made with less insulation. In the latter case, a heat pump on its own would not suffice as an effective solution during extremely cold weather in which the boiler offers a backup or boost. A large enough space is required for the installation of the heat pump fan outside the house depending on the model chosen.
