NIBE air source heat pump range

Swedish company, NIBE, has been manufacturing heat pumps globally for 40 years. Their industry-leading air source heat pumps not only look great, they also offer the highest levels of performance and functionality.

NIBE ASHP range features

  • Incredibly quiet thanks to Owl Wing fan design, producing maximum sound power levels as low as 50 decibels
  • Intuitive control with smart connectivity
  • Compact units available in four sizes: 6kW, 8kW, 12kW and 16kW
  • Cascade and hybrid options to suit a wide range of properties
  • MCS approved for Renewable Heat Incentive applications
  • 7-year warranty when commissioned by a Nu-Heat engineer
  • Pair with our EnergyPro® cylinders for domestic hot water

When connected to the internet, NIBE Uplink® and new, smart myUplink®, provides a quick and simple way to monitor and control the heat pump and feedback on system performance.

It’s intuitive to use, meaning that you can optimise the air source heat pump’s energy consumption, keep an eye on running costs and create the perfect level of comfort in the home.

Why choose a heat pump from Nu-Heat?

As a MCS accredited company, we know what it takes to design an efficient system that effectively heats a home, whilst also keeping running costs low.

Our systems include tailored project schematics and all system components and fittings as standard, for a quick and smooth installation that is backed up with lifetime technical support.

Which unit will I need?

We will take factors such as the size of the property, location and domestic hot water demand into account to select the right size heat pump for the project.

Positioning the unit

NIBE air source heat pumps can be installed on almost any kind of terrain and are supplied in a range of sizes to suit small, medium or large homes and even light commercial buildings.

  • Place F2040 outdoors on a solid level base, preferably a concrete foundation; do not place it directly on a lawn or other non-solid surface. If used, concrete slabs must rest on tarmac or gravel.
  • The foundation should be positioned so that the lower edge of the evaporator is at a minimum of 300mm above ground level. Areas that are prone to standing water or heavy snow should take this into consideration when selecting the appropriate height above ground level.
  • The F2040 should not be positioned next to a habitable room or to inconvenience neighbours. We can help calculate this to meet MCS020
  • Condensation water should be directed to a drain or similar.
  • Positioning should be in accordance with local planning guidance.

Distance from the property

For a heat pump using 32mm (DN25) insulated plastic pipe connections between the heat pump and property the maximum distance permitted is shown in the table. This will be checked at the design stage. If your project falls outside these criteria please speak to your Project Engineer.

For full details please refer to the NIBE F2040 Installation Manual available at www.nibe.co.uk.
