Exceptional endurance tests: - Third-party testing and certiﬁcation: All the performances are certiﬁed by Eurovent and unit safety is certiﬁed by IMQ. - All the units are tested at various stages on the production line for circuit leakage, electrical compliance, water and refrigerant pressures. - End-of-line test of all unit operating parameters - Corrosion resistance test - Accelerated ageing test on critical components and complete assembled units, simulating thousands of hours of continuous operation. - Packaging crash test to ensure that the units are adequately protected against accidental shocks - Extensive ﬁeld and site testing.
The new design facilitates the installation process and makes two independent comfort zones, which are easy to control. This kit includes a hydronic disconnection collector, the necessary circulating pumps and modulating valve. Installed together with the domestic hot water tank, the two-zone kit can integrate all accessories, such as the diverting valve and T-connection.
Increased energy efficiency at part load: - The exceptionally high energy efﬁciency of the XP Energy heat pumps is the result of a long qualiﬁcation and optimisation process. - Use of ambient air as primary source of energy in domestic heating applications signiﬁcantly reduces the overall energy consumption and minimises CO2 emissions. - Night mode operation at reduced compressor speed, results in low-noise operation and a signiﬁcant reduction in energy consumption. - Easy-to-set and economical silent mode, reduces the compressor speed. - R-410A refrigerant is easier to use than other refrigerant blends.
Domestic hot water tank
The tank is of 200 or 300 litres, with or without connection to a solar thermal panel. Built-in electric heater backup and anti-legionnella protection, controlled by the comfort module, make domestic hot water readily available, safe and energy-efficient.
The new GMC controller is specifically developed for the XP Energy inverter heat pumps, and incorporates new control algorithms. It features customised or pre-defined climate curves, domestic hot water control, a nighttime noise reduction function, a defrost/alarm output signal, an external heat source, a pump block prevention function, freeze protection and compressor operation management.
New comfort module
With its enhanced aesthetics and compactness, combined with new features and options, the new XP Energy sets new standards in energy savings and comfort. Using the two-zone kit, two separate terminal units or two independent comfort zones can be closely monitored. Domestic hot water production is made easy and can be interfaced with solar thermal panels. 368
