Air Source Heat Pumps

The ideal sustainable heating and hot water solution for residential homes

With over 60 years’ experience of designing innovative and efficient heating solutions, Panasonic has developed the Aquarea range of sustainable and renewable heat pumps that are reliable, quiet in operation, easy to use, and deliver energy efficient, cost-effective solutions for UK residential homes.

The Aquarea range of Air to Water Heat Pumps provides a low carbon alternative to mains gas, oil, LPG and electric heaters. The Aquarea heat pump works by extracting heat from the ambient outside air. By using a compression cycle, the captured heat energy is then increased in temperature (similar technology to a refrigerator but in reverse) to not only heat the inside of a home but additionally provide a constant supply of hot water.

Plus – Aquarea offers users an easy, powerful and intuitive smart cloud option with remote control and maintenance functions, to allow homeowners to monitor and track their energy usage, to help cut costs and be more energy efficient.

You don’t need to be technically-minded to understand Aquarea’s green credentials


Three reasons why Aquarea is an ideal solution for your home

1. Wide range to suit all homes

Aquarea is an innovative low-energy system, designed to provide ideal temperatures and hot water in the home, even with extreme outdoor temperatures. It is highly reliable thanks to the quality of all components, including the compressor, developed and manufactured by Panasonic. With many units to choose from, the Aquarea Range offers a very wide choice to ensure the most appropriate choice for your home - whatever the size.

2. Heat Pump,
80% of energy for free

Based on Air to Water heat pump technology, Aquarea is highly efficient and environmentally friendly. It captures heat energy from the ambient air and transfers it to heat the water needed to warm your home, for domestic hot water and even to cool the house if wished. In this way, up to 80% of the heat energy required is taken from the ambient air - even in extremely low temperatures.

3. Helps you to
save money

Energy cost savings of up to 1100€ a year are possible compared to conventional electric heating. Whilst initial investment may be higher than other technologies, running costs are far cheaper and with a short payback period on initial cost. Savings are significant particularly when compared to oil-fired boilers and electric heaters.
