New! Sanden CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water Heater to be distributed by Small Planet Supply in June 2016
Efficiency that is truly revolutionary
We are excited to bring CO2 heat pump technology to North America this winter with a new series of UL/CSA listed heat pump hot water heaters from Sanden of Japan.
The system replaces standard heat pump refrigerants with CO2, which dramatically increase the efficiency, while eliminating the global warming potential of standard refrigerants. It's a double whammy of effectiveness achieved by collecting CO2 from manufacturing waste streams.
At a capacity of 18,500 BTU/hr, the system can be a simple dedicated hot water heater, or can be designed into a COMBI SYSYEM that supplies both domestic hot water (DHW) and heat for your energy efficient home (space conditioning).
Space conditioning delivery methods can range from hot water radiators to a full radiant floor system. Contact us for more information. Read more about Sanden.
