No gas connection (anymore)? Then a heat pump is quickly the first choice. But which source do you choose? This choice has become a lot easier for a few years now. This is because there is a silent and super efficient source system that – both in new construction and for making existing buildings more sustainable – can be perfectly combined with a water / water heat pump from NIBE: PVT heat pump panels from Triple Solar.
PVT panels are fitted with PV cells on the front that convert sunlight into electricity. The back of the panels is formed by a thermal exchanger that extracts heat from the ambient air. This makes optimum use of sunlight, daylight and outside air. The heat is transported to the heat pump via brine (glycol) for the supply of central heating heating and hot tap water. Because the PVT panels are not insulated at the back, they can extract maximum heat from the environment, even when the sun is not shining. As a result, the panels also function at night and in winter as a source for a water / water heat pump from NIBE. The PV cells at the front generate enough electricity to cover the energy consumption of the heat pump. To supplement the electrical power, additional PV panels can be installed with exactly the same appearance as the PVT panels. This creates an aesthetically pleasing total solution. To provide you with further information about the operation, application and benefits of PVT panels in combination with a NIBE water / water heat pump, NIBE and Triple Solar provided a free online webinar on Thursday, November 12, from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. In this webinar – which you could follow live on your PC – the following topics were discussed:
Brief introduction to NIBE and Triple Solar
Types of heat pumps: brief overview
Operation and specifications of PVT heat pump panels
This makes the NIBE / Triple Solar combination unique
Designing, calculating and dimensioning an installation
In practice: some reference projects highlighted
Arguments for the choice of PVT heat pump panels and NIBE
Advantages over other source systems
Advantages of NIBE / Triple Solar in various exploitation forms
Investments, financing options and subsidies
Assembly: work for specialists?
