Hitachi Air Conditioning Europe has agreed a new partnership with heat pump distributor, Freedom Heat Pumps, based near Eastleigh in Hampshire.
As part of the pre-launch activities, Freedom presented the new Hitachi heat pump range to key customers at an event hosted by Hitachi at its aircadamy training centre in Maidenhead. The day was well attended and all the feedback has been extremely positive.
Effective from this month, the new partnership will provide installers with a place where Hitachi’s new range of MCS approved air to water heat pumps can be supplied alongside experienced and first class service available from Freedom with full pre-sales and post-sales support.
The new range of heat pumps includes the Yutaki-SCombi which the company says is an all-in-one, pre-plumbed and pre-wired heat pump and hot water system with exceptional efficiencies and low noise levels. The new range also includes Hitachi’s very high temperature Yutaki-S80 unit which can generate hot water up to 80°C making it ideal for replacing inefficient heating systems; it is also eligible for the UK Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
Chris Higgs, sales director, Freedom Heat Pumps, said: “Having launched last year, the Hitachi units are next generation products, designed and built in the EU and have been tailor-made to suit our market. The impressively wide range means we can now offer solutions for previously impossible installations, which we believe will be of great interest to anyone already installing heat pumps.”
Hitachi is excited by the new partnership with Freedom and Andy Hooper, Hitachi’s UK Heating Manager said: “Hitachi is delighted to announce Freedom Heat Pumps as a new distributor and together we look forward to many years of providing renewable heating systems to homes across the UK”.
