geoTHERM 22 - 46kW

Ground source heat pump

  • "Quiet Mark" approved thanks to geoTHERM multi-stage sound insulation
  • Energy yield display
  • MCS accredited, RHI eligible

Overview

Vaillant’s geoTHERM range of ground source heat pumps provides maximum comfort and efficiency, combined with simple installation, smooth operation and advanced diagnostics that have become synonymous with the Vaillant brand. geoTHERM is compatible with domestic, and with a range of larger outputs, can serve commercial properties or large homes which operate on a three-phase electricity supply.

As part of a well-insulated home, the geoTHERM system provides the perfect solution for off gas properties, using oil or LPG in particular, by accessing a sustainable energy source, helping to protect against fluctuating prices of fuel, and also eliminating the need for fuel storage.

geoTHERM was our first heat pump to be “Quiet Mark” accredited, which was quickly followed by the air source heat pump, aroTHERMand the multi-source heat pump, flexoTHERM.

Features and benefits:

  • Models are available in four outputs: 22kW, 30kW, 38kW and 46kW
  • Evaporator with injection system - provides increased heat transfer
  • Maximum flow temperature of up to 62°C for domestic hot water
  • Weather-compensated energy-balance control unit with graphic display of the environmental yield
  • Multi-stage Sound Insulation (MSI) for quiet operation
  • Passive cooling function
  • Available to use in cascade
  • Works efficiently with low floor temperature heating systems, either underfloor or radiators sized to suit
  • MCS accredited and RHI eligible
  • Commissioning available by Vaillant Service
  • Energy yield display - The inbuilt control shows in a clear bar chart diagram showing the energy absorbed from the ground loop, proving the actual system efficiency
