With a NIBE air/water heat pump, you can reduce heating costs by up to 70%, depending on where you live, the living area, the choice of heat pump and whether you use a cooling function or not. Here we are using outdoor air, one of nature's free and renewable energy sources with minimal CO2 emissions. The unusually high level of -efficiency means that an investment in an air/water heat pump pays for itself quickly and gives you a secure supply of heat and hot water, adapted to our Nordic climate.
Our new F2120-series of air/water heat pumps represent a real breakthrough in housewarming with a SCOP-value of more than 5.0. Or in other words; the pumps deliver more than five times as much heat, on an annual basis, as an electric heater using the same energy.

Air/water heat pumps utilise the heat energy of the outside air.
The heat pumps are designed for outside placement and transform an existing radiator system into an excellent, complete heating system.
Heat pump technology is actually based on a very simple, well-known principle. It works in a similar way to any domestic refrigerator, using a vapour compression cycle.
The main components in the heat pump are the compressor, the expansion valve and two heat exchangers (an evaporator and a condenser).
A fan draws the outdoor air into the heat pump where it meets the evaporator. This is connected in a closed system containing a refrigerant that can turn into gas at very low temperatures. When the outdoor air hits the evaporator the refrigerant will turn into gas.
Then, using a compressor, the gas reaches a high enough temperature to be transferred in the condensor to the house’s heating system. At the same time the refrigerant reverts to liquid form, ready to turn into gas once more and to collect new heat.
Using an inverter-driven heat pump compressor, the system can be regulated so that heat output matches the exact capacity required at any given time. This means the heat pump will only consume the exact energy needed, making it highly efficient.
In the summer, the refrigeration circuit is capable of operating in reverse to provide cooling on demand.
The first is financial. An air/water heat pump makes heating your home and hot water much cheaper. You can reduce your heating costs by up to 70%, although the exact figure depends on several factors such as where you live, the size of your house and whether or not you use the cooling function. Your initial investment is relatively low since an air/ water heat pump, unlike a ground source heat pump, does not require any geothermal drilling. And the efficiency of NIBE’s heat pumps (they have an especially high operating range) positively impacts the speed with which you recover your investment. With energy prices continually rising, you’re unlikely to regret your decision. In fact, you’ll start enjoying savings from the first month.
The second reason for choosing an air/water heat pump is that it’s so environmentally-friendly. By merely upgrading naturally occurring energy from the air outside to heat your home and hot water, it leads to much lower CO2 emissions than any traditional fossil-fuel based heating system.
