Split air/water heat pump Vitocal 242-S
Split heat pumps are distinguished by their separation into a quiet interior and an air-conducting exterior part. Complex wall penetrations and the installation of air ducts are avoided with this design. As a pure heating system or as an installation for heating and cooling, they are ideally suited for new builds and modernisation.
The Vitocal 242-S is a split heat pump with integrated solar function for solar water heating as well as integrated hot water storage, the storage capacity is 220 litres.
Efficient and compact building services control centre for heating, cooling, DHW heating and ventilation
The large number of output and configuration options for the combined system comprising the Vitocal 242-S and the Vitovent 300-F mechanical ventilation unit allow the building services control centre to be matched to the energy needs of the building, making this system combination particularly suitable for new build.
The highly efficient heat recovery of the Vitovent 300-F mechanical ventilation unit complements the energy saving heating technology. The system combination achieves heat recovery of up to 98 percent. In passive houses, the system combination can also be used for space heating. An hydraulic heating coil is available as an option to allow heating of the supply air.
Compact indoor units
With its timeless design and only 60 cms in width, the Vitocal 222-S interior units can be placed close to the home (for example, in the utility room). They include the hydraulics, the heat exchanger (condenser), the hot water storage tank, a high-efficiency pump, a heating water flow heater, a 3-way change-over valve and the Vitotronic 200 control.
Heat pump control
The Vitotronic 200 is logical and easy to understand. The large display is illuminated, contrast-free and easy to read. The graphical user interface is also used to display heating and cooling characteristics.
Efficient and economical
The split heat pumps operate particularly economically in partial load operation. Since the inverter technology adapts the compressor performance precisely to the heat demand through the modulating operation, a high efficiency is achieved at every operating point.
EHPA seal of approval
The EHPA seal of approval serves as proof of the COP (Coefficient of Performance) for the heat pump according to the market incentive program.
The German EHPA quality seal commission certifies that the Viessmann heat pump Vitocal 242-S meets the requirements of the EHPA quality seal regulations.
Clear, comfortable, intelligent: The Vitotronic offers perfect functions for fast and exact control of every heating system.
Control Vitotronic 200 - Can also be operated via app via a smartphone at any time.
Vitoconnect 100 creates the connection
The Vitoconnect 100 interface is required to operate via the app. Retrofitting of earlier heat pumps of the Vitocal series (from 2010 onwards) is possible at any time.
The ViCare app allows the user to control their heating system via a smartphone. The operating status can be viewed at any time and, in the event of a fault, contact can be made quickly and easily with the installation company previously registered in the app.
