Overview

flexoTHERM with Green iQ

A modern, refreshing take on the heat pump system, our new flexoTHERM with Green iQ can use three possible heat sources. flexoTHERM can be a ground source heat pump when connected to a group loop, it can be an air source heat pump when connected to our aroCOLLECT, or it can be a water source heat pump when connected with our fluoCOLLECT.

The flexoTHERM heat pump models are available in two categories, 230V in 5, 8 & 11kW, as well as 400V in 15 and 19kW outputs and offer state of the art EVI compressor technology giving extremely high efficiency and heating performance.

The flexoTHERM has also been awarded the "Quiet Mark", issued by the Noise Abatement Society, thanks to its exceptionally low operating noise levels. It sounds no louder than a standard domestic fridge.

Features and benefits:

  • Models available: The flexoTHERM intelligent heat pump is available in two voltages with the following outputs: 230v 5, 8 & 11kW. 400v 15 and 19kW models
  • Highest ErP rating: A+++ when installed with a VRC 700
  • High quality and sustainability: Well engineered product of outstanding quality which is both sustainable and ready for the future
  • Easy installation: Integral components - built in ground and heating circulation pumps and three way diverter valve
  • Extended range of accessories: Water heat exchanger, passive cooling and brine filling station
  • Flexible source options: Can connect to three different sources - ground, water or air
  • High SCoP: The SCoP value for 15kW model is 35°C - 5.22 and 35°C - 4.96 for the 19kW model
  • Excellent customer service: Delivering market leading design, installation and commissioning support to meet need
  • Exceptionally quiet: With noise levels comparable to a modern fridge 42dBA

Your customers will feel the benefits too

  • Comfort up, consumption down - The flexoTHERM with Green IQ carries the highest energy efficiency label in its class: ErP rating A++. The Green iQ operation mode also helps reduce your customer's electricity bills.
  • Smart on the inside - Innovative technology is built right into the flexoTHERM exclusive with Green iQ.
  • Flexibility - The flexoTHERM prodives you with flexibility in the ways it can be installed, it works with all heat sources; ground, air or water.
  • Future-proof investment - The flexoTHERM is designed with future proof technology with keeps in mind the needs of tomorrow.
