After the UK announced its ambitious Net Zero target last year, technological solutions are being called on and developed to help drive down emissions and build a better future for everyone. With 40% of emissions coming from the way we heat our homes and buildings, decarbonising heat is a key part of this plan. As such, available low carbon technological solutions like heat pumps are needed in homes now and in the future. NIBE is now taking heat pumps one step further with the launch of the new S Series.
The S Series makes life easier for both consumers and installers
Suited to everyday life, the range reduces costs whilst creating a perfect indoor climate. A natural part of the home, the new series improves thermal comfort and saves energy, giving homes the opportunity to save costs and support a greener and more sustainable world.
Featuring an elegant new look complete with a push-to-open aluminium door and an updated interface to swipe through, customers can enjoy the benefit of sophisticated touchscreen control.Thanks to new comprehensive software, the S Series can now be updated quickly and more frequently with ever-expanding features. Smart guide prompts make adjusting the indoor temperature effortless, and weather forecast compensation with GPS location services enables the heat pumps to automatically adapt to upcoming climate conditions.
Complimented by integrated wireless connectivity and voice assistant support, consumers can connect and interact with their heat pump system anytime, anywhere.
With integrated flow meters, the new S1155 and S1255 range can now log delivered energy, allowing consumers to easily view heat generation and understand performance within their indoor climate system. New installer features enable remote diagnostics and fault-finding of systems, reducing the need for unnecessary site visits. For simple and quicker diagnostics, new circulation pumps with Linbus connectivity communicate with the heat pump to detect faults within the system and create useful alarms.
The launch of the S Series comes at the same time as the newly developed myUplink and myUplinkPRO apps are released. The apps include a customisation tile system design which allows home owners to monitor and control a whole climate system from a smart device.
Through myUplinkPRO heat pumps can now be commissioned with a direct wireless connection on a smart device, allowing for settings and updates to be made remotely by the installer. As an important element of NIBE’s future products, myUplink will be continuously updated with new functions and smart accessories to increase comfort and reduce energy consumption, such as wireless thermostatic radiator valves, sensors and remote user interfaces.
Phil Hurley, managing director at NIBE Energy Systems said: ?“I’m particularly proud of the new S Series, and the difference the products will make to homes and families. These heat pumps don’t just cool, heat, ventilate and supply homes with hot water – they revolutionise how it feels and performs. As we spend a substantial amount of time in our homes during this uncertain period, the importance of a comfortable and energy efficient home won’t go unnoticed. The new product line builds on what NIBE has always stood for by delivering maximum comfort with minimal energy consumption.'
In response to the current energy crisis, heating industry commentators have called for an accelerated push for zero carbon technologies to make buildings more energy efficient.
