Heat Pumps Explained

Air to Water Heat pumps are central heating systems that are an extremely efficient and cost effective method of heating your home.


Air to Water Heat Pumps - Better for you, Better for Nature

Air to Water Heat pumps are central heating systems that are an extremely efficient and cost effective method of heating your home. Heat from the air is absorbed at low temperature into a fluid using an external unit. This fluid then passes through a compressor or internal unit where its temperature is increased and transfers its higher temperature heat to the heating and hot water circuits of the house.

An air-to-water system distributes heat via your wet central heating system. Heat pumps work much more efficiently at a lower temperature than a standard boiler system. This makes them more suitable for underfloor heating systems or larger radiators, which give out heat at lower temperatures over longer periods of time.

The environmental advantages of air to water heat pumps are particularly useful for those completing new build projects in Ireland as it can also help meet Part L compliance as outlined in building regulations. To find out more on building regulations and NZEB or Nearly Zero Energy Buildings

New Builds, Home Heating Retrofits and Grants

  • Air to Water Heat Pumps are ideal for new builds or when retrofitting heating systems in existing buildings and their low noise emission make it ideal for family homes.
  • Those retrofitting can also check if they are eligible for the heat pump grant offered by the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland which offers up to €3,500. For more information visit https://www.seai.ie/grants/home-energy-grants/heat-pump-systems/
  • Innovative design for easy installation and maintenance.

Cost Efficient to Run

  • Any unit within the A++ rated Stanley range can deliver up to 5 times the amount of energy for every 1kW of electricity used depending on the flow temperature and climate conditions prevailing at the time.  
  • Seasonal coefficient of performance or COP is up to 5.1. COP is calculated by dividing the annual heating demand by the annual energy consumed. So for every every kilowatt of energy used to run a Stanley Heat pump, up to 5kW of energy is being given to the heating system in return. 

Smart Remote Control and Management

Smart remote access to your heating system lets you control settings and temperature via website and optional controllers. You can also download an app to your phone or tablet.

Access to data and managing your heating system from your own home,  workplace or holiday vacation with our Stanley App.
