Solving Decarbonisation Hurdles with Euro Gas & Everest290
EURO GAS ADDRESSES DECARBONISATION CHALLENGES IN HVAC WITH THE ADAPTABLE EMICON EVEREST 290 HEAT PUMP, OFFERING TEMPERATURE, SPACE & COST SOLUTIONS
Helping your client on the path towards building decarbonisation and renewable energy adoption comes with its own set of challenges. Three of the main issues facing you right now are: 1) production temperature, 2) availability of space and 3) capital costs. Euro Gas, Ireland and NI’s leading supplier to the HVAC sector, believes it offers the solution: the Emicon Everest 290 air/water heat pump. Here’s why;
1. SOLVING PRODUCTION TEMPERATURE
When it comes to transitioning older buildings to renewable energy sources, the challenge of adapting production temperature often arises. Structures designed under the 82/71 system require high-temperature heat pumps, rendering the switch to renewables seemingly unfeasible. However, energy engineers’ testing within older buildings has yielded encouraging results: reducing the flow temperature to 68°C has demonstrated no compromise in occupant comfort or indoor temperature. The Everest290, boasting the capability to reach
70°C and even achieve 68°C at an outdoor temperature of -5°C, offers a transformative solution.
2. SOLVING INSTALLATION SPACE
High-capacity air source heat pumps often demand substantial installation space and proper airflow access. In contrast, the Everest290 emerges with an innovative approach. Its compact footprint and modular configuration allow for seamless side-by-side installation. Leveraging optional cascade pipework, the setup process becomes swift and efficient. Crucially, all primary components are conveniently accessible from the unit’s front for streamlined maintenance.
3. SOLVING CAPITAL COST
High temperature heat pumps capable of producing high temperatures can be extremely expensive. The initial capital cost alone is enough for a project not to go ahead.
The modular nature of the Everest290 means that decarbonisation can be carried out in stages as budget allows. No huge upfront costs, transparent and easy pricing for each module allows finance departments to plan for future spending and upgrades. The Controls Gateway and Power Distribution accessories (for cascade of 5 or 10 units) make adding units simple.
The Everest290 operates with Natural Refrigerant (R290), boasting an exceptionally low GWP of 3. Using cutting-edge microchannel evaporators and purpose-designed circuits for heating, the unit delivers impressive efficiency and an outstanding SCOP. The Everest290 adheres to S.I. 646/2016 regulations and exceeds the minimum criteria for Green Public Procurement, solidifying its sustainability credentials.
