Plumbmaster’s brand new Energy Hub opens its doors to installers and self-builders for the first time on Monday, August 2. Based at Plumbmaster’s Newry head office, the Energy Hub will showcase all the company’s renewable energy options alongside fully working control systems and displays of their Heatmaster UFH systems.
Expert guidance and training is available for installers – by appointment – from Plumbmaster’s expert Renewables consultant, Wayne Gribben. Self-builders can also book time with him to go through house plans, and get assistance from conception to aftersales care. As an established renewables supplier for over 10 years, Plumbmaster have been at the head of the green energy revolution in NI. They are renowned for their high quality Heat Pumps and Solar Thermal Systems expertly overseen by the sales team.
Following on from their successful Roadshow in May, which visited all 11 Plumbmaster branches showcasing their HeatMaster UFH system alongside their renewable products and expertise, Wayne said, “It has become evident that there is a rapidly increasing demand for this technology. The interest and growth of the renewable energy market, especially within new builds, indicates this is the industry of the future in NI and Plumbmaster / Heatmaster are ready!”
Plumbmaster work closely with a number of renewable energy product manufacturers offering many options to their customers, such as:
GRANT AERONA3 R32
The Aerona³ R32 air source heat pumps are Grant’s greenest and most efficient generation of heat pump technology. Compact in size and highly efficient, the Aerona³ heat pumps provide homeowners with a renewable solution to fulfil their heating and hot water requirements. Using the more environmentally friendly R32 refrigerant, an Aerona³ heat pump achieves high performances to effectively keep properties warm while also helping households to lower their dependency on fossil fuels.
SAMSUNG GENERATION 6
The Samsung EHS GEN6 is the latest generation in Samsung’s successful range of MCS accredited air source heat pumps, following the Samsung GEN5. Quickly becoming the go-to air source heat pump, the Samsung EHS GEN6 comes with excellent technical support combined with a competitive price. Useful for most large and small scale installations.
The NUOS Plus air source heat pump water heater is the ideal solution for energy efficient hot water requirements with renewable technology. NUOS Plus ensures up to 75% energy saving compared to traditional electric storage water heaters and allows for temperatures of up to 62°C, with the most efficient COP in the market while boasting the shortest water heating time in the category. High quality insulation enables hot water to be kept at the desired temperature for a ling period of time, saving more money on energy bills.
VICTORUM EXHAUST AIR HEAT PUMP
The Victorum Exhaust Air Heat Pump (EAHP) system is the perfect solution for new build flat heating and ventilation. The all in one flat heat pump technology provides Centralised Mechanical Extract Ventilation (cMEV), central heating and domestic hot water (DHW), whilst fully complying with domestic Part L and Part F regulations. An EAHP recycles the air extracted and provides the most efficient heating solution for flats with very high COP’s achieved. The Victorum provides control over energy consumption and will be a key part of the homeowner’s connected lifestyle. The smart control system automatically adjusts to the indoor climate efficiently for maximum comfort.
Often heat pumps are specified alongside UFH by self-builders. “The two work well together, because they both operate as a low temperature system,” says Wayne.
“Which is why we stock A+++ rated heat pumps by Grant and Samsung which are both backed up by free commissioning. HeatMaster UFH has been around for a while now,” says Wayne, “but is a little under the radar. We wanted to make more people aware of the great value this quality system provides, along with the added benefits of manufacturer warranties and our free, expert design package.”
Plumbmaster also stocks and supplies a wide range of High Efficient Intelligent Controls.
