This solution is one of the most effective, innovative designs in recent years for 50-unit or more buildings. It’s effective because a centrally located condensing boiler, combined with a mixed water loop, warms each dwelling via a heat pump. A centralized condensing water heater—which maximizes the floor space of each dwelling—ensures the flow of hot water. And it’s innovative because it pairs natural gas with a heat pump to get the best of both worlds! The result lives up to expectations.
Optimal solution set-up
1- Heat pump
- Connected to a water tower and a boiler—warms and cools air in each unit.
2- Condensing water heater
- Reuses latent heat energy—a high-efficiency appliance.
3- Condensing boiler
- A more compact appliance—facilitates integration into mechanical rooms.
