The Rheem YF Series Commercial Heat Pump Range has arrived in New Zealand, and it’s already set a new standard in the industry. With a remarkable Global Warming Potential (GWP) rating below 1 (<1), improved Co-Efficient of Performance (COP), higher hot water delivery temperature and better low ambient operation, this heat pump range is the obvious choice for businesses and property owners looking to lower their carbon footprint.
The YF Series is available in Air to Water (A2W) and Water to Water (W2W) models in nominal 15kW and 30kW outputs, making them suitable for most buildings. With a host of new innovations, they can also deliver hot water up to 65°C without compromising their low impact on the environment. The YF Series employs the refrigerant R1234yf, which has an ultra-low GWP rating, as well an improved COP. Detailed engineering has further tuned the average COP of the A2W models up to 4.28 for the 30kW model and 4.23 for the 15kW model. The A2W heat pumps can operate in very low ambient conditions down to 0°C, reducing the reliance on auxiliary heating methods, and so improving overall annual efficiency.
Another advantage of the YF Series is the reduced complexity, plant footprint and weight of the heat pumps, which makes them easier to house and install. The A2W models are designed with both vertical and horizontal discharge options, with fan options available in ducted and non-ducted versions. If needed, the horizontal discharge models can also be stacked two high to further reduce plant footprint.
The heat pumps are also packed full of all the usual features customers have come to expect from Rheem. These include the Marine grade aluminium cabinet that won’t rust, evaporator coils fully dipped with Rheemkote, and a Rheem iQ controller that monitors nine operating parameters, providing on-board diagnostics and BMS output for improved reliability and servicing.
As Rheem works hard to achieve their own bold sustainability goals, they’re excited to offer commercial products to other New Zealand businesses that will help with their sustainability efforts. The Rheem YF Series Commercial Heat Pumps provide an easy pathway to lowering a building’s carbon footprint, as well as reducing overall energy costs.
