Unvented cylinders specifically designed to work with a heat pump
The Plumbing Group has produced an unvented stainless-steel cylinder specifically for use with heat pump applications, providing mains pressure domestic hot water.
Based on the trusted Venturi brand the heat pump cylinder heat exchanger consists of a 28mm finned coil which helps to reduce the pressure loss whilst maximising the heat exchange.
Many heat pumps will not be able to achieve stored water temperature of 60 degrees Celsius, which is necessary to prevent the growth of legionella, all of the Venturi VHP range is equipped with an immersion heater to achieve this.
It is recommended that the thermostat is wired to enable the immersion heater to switch on at a temperature just below the heat pump maximum and then switches off at 65 degrees Celsius. Wiring the Venturi VHP in this manner will reduce the use of direct electricity and will ensure that most of the water heating is achieved through the heat pump.
