Among the sustainability initiatives identified, was the opportunity to achieve significant energy savings through the use of heat pumps in place of the existing boilers. Some hesitation existed however, in the adoption of heat pumps due to Canberra’s occasional sub-zero temperatures. After carefully considering all project constraints, Automatic Heating designed a sustainable and efficient solution that would maintain the integrity of this heritage listed building and provide reliable space heating.
The heating solution, which includes #Revere CO2 Heat Pumps is ideally suited for the project. Revere CO2 Heat Pumps use CO₂, a natural refrigerant which has an ozone depletion potential (ODP) of zero and a global warming potential (GWP) of 1. Revere CO2 Heat Pumps also achieve a high coefficient of performance (COP), which equates to significant energy savings.
