Hamworthy Heating’s first ever air source heat pump was recently launched at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge in Surrey, where guests had the opportunity to ‘get hands-on’ with the new system.
The British manufacturer and supplier of commercial heating and hot water products says the Tyneham Heat Pump ‘offers superb operational reliability and outstanding performance’. Hamworthy Heating said: “The monobloc air source heat pump features a co-efficiency of performance (COP) rating of up to 4.85, to provide efficient, low-carbon heating. It is also lightweight and compact. The seven models in the range boast six nominal outputs of between 14 and 70 kW, which can also be cascaded to achieve higher outputs in larger installations. Incorporating an inverter control compressor to accurately match the heat demand, R32 refrigerant also offers a low global warming potential.”
During the launch event, Chris Caton, Product director – Commercial, at Groupe Atlantic UK, ROI & North America, gave a presentation in Brooklands Hall covering the decarbonisation of heating, and the diversity of products and technologies on the market, including electrification, heat networks, and hydrogen. Also looking at strategy, policy, and funding information, he detailed an in-depth approach to heat pumps and electrification, and highlighted the features and benefits of the Tyneham Heat Pump range.
Hamworthy Heating guests also experienced the excitement of the circuit, with a ‘Hot Lap’ passenger ride, and were invited to take the wheel of a racing car and compete in the simulation zone. During the afternoon, could look around the three floors of attractions and fascinating displays, legendary vehicles, and the ‘iconic’ Mercedes-Benz F1 cars on display.
Designed with ease of service in mind, the new Tyneham Heat Pumps are available to purchase with variable options such as flexible hoses, anti-vibration feet, buffer tanks, and externally mounted control units. They can also be combined with Hamworthy modular boilers for a hybrid heating system.
