SIK 16 ME Ground Source Heat Pump by Dimplex provides optimised convenience when it comes to heating and domestic hot water preparation, at low operating costs and without oil or gas. By contributing to active climate protection, they also help to keep the environment intact for future generations. Dimplex heat pumps are much more economical than conventional oil or gas heating. Heat pump operating costs can be as much as three times lower than those of other types of systems. Moreover, heat pumps are virtually maintenance-free, as they do not require regular checks and adjustments on the part of a chimney sweep. Heating costs can have an influence on the value of a building. When the value of a building is being estimated, its heating system is also taken into account. This means that the installation of a heat pump heating system increases the value of the property
Heat pumps operate most efficiently when the components of the heat pump system – the heat source, heat pump and connected heating system – have been optimally matched. SIK 16 ME Ground Source Heat Pump are suitable for use with the following types of heating distribution system:
Underfloor heating – the ideal choice for use with a heat pump. The larger heating surface area available allows lower water temperatures to be used (i.e. 35ºC – 45ºC), helping to improve the efficiency of the heat pump system.
Radiators – The SIK 16 ME has a maximum water output temperature of 58ºC, making it possible for use with radiators providing the radiators are correctly sized.
Boiler systems usually run at much higher water output temperatures (75ºC +), therefore for lower water temperatures produced by a heat pump, the size of each radiator has to be approximately doubled to enable the same level of heat output.
