Good for the environment
Despite European agreements to phase out fluorinated greenhouse gasses by 2020, heat pumps are still filled with these extremely greenhouse-hazardous refrigerants. An average of 6 percent of refrigerant leaks away every year. This reinforces the greenhouse effect – which must be counteracted. The Global Warming Potential of conventional heat pumps is > 1,300.
CO2 heat pump
The Durocan heat pump uses CO2 (eco-friendly gas) as a refrigerant. It absorbs heat from the outside air to heat water – saving energy and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Its Global Warming Potential = 1
The noise level of the outdoor unit of the heat pump is qualified as ‘whisper quiet’. It will not disturb you, or your neighbors! 37dB (A).
Single system for sanitary water and space heating
The thermal storage tank of the Durocan provides sanitary water and space heating. It has an integrated heat exchanger. The large heating surface of the spiral and the sophisticated hourglass shape ensure a very efficient hot water production. This guarantees a quick warm-up time and high hot water comfort.
The high-quality insulation ensures the lowest possible heat loss, which minimizes the costs for high hot water comfort.
