Heat Pump Lifestyle Image

Utilise heat from the ground and air

Our advanced heat pump technology utilises the latent heat in outdoor air and the ground to provide cost effective and environmentally responsible heating. These pumps can be used as standalone units or they can be incorporated into your existing heating system as an additional source of heat.

Operating a heat pump saves valuable resources

In contrast to traditional heating appliances, heat pump systems harness renewable energy from the ground, sun, groundwater or air. They therefore reduce the consumption of fossil fuels, conserving valuable resources in the process. They also lower CO2 emissions that harm the environment.

Viessmann heat pumps hold a further advantage. Many of our solutions feature active and natural cooling functions. This means that as well as generating heat on cold days, they can bring refreshing cool air into your home during the summer.

All of our heat pump heating and cooling solutions are designed and made to the highest standards, offering impressive efficiency and longevity.

Heat pump types

Air source heat pumps

Giving you heating and hot water throughout the year, air source heat pumps generate heat energy from the surrounding air. They continue to work even when temperatures outside dip as low as -15°C.

Ground source heat pumps

Featuring geothermal probes or collectors buried outside your home, these heat pumps use the ground as their primary source of energy. They provide heating and hot water for your home.

Design & Technology

Innovative design and engineering

Engineered in Germany, Viessmann heat pumps feature advanced acoustic design (AAD), a modern, timeless appearance and superior build quality for long lasting performance and reliability. The units are also designed to be compatible with photovoltaic energy from solar panels.

Our heat pumps can integrate with new, purpose built heating systems for increased efficiency and sustainability, and they can also be incorporated as an additional heat source when renovating existing heating systems.

Ideal for new builds and modernisations

Our heat pumps are highly versatile solutions. They can be ideal whether you are looking for a heating system for a new build or a renovation, and they can be operated in conjunction with solar thermal systems to bring further cost savings and environmental benefits. In addition, they can be combined with an existing gas or oil heating system to form a multi-mode system.

This enables every building and property owner to put their plans into action in the most efficient way possible.

Ready for smart technology

Our heat pumps are designed with smart technology in mind and include the option to be controlled remotely via our free ViCare app and Vitoconnect, giving you fingertip control over the efficiency and comfort of your home from wherever you are and helping you to save money even when you are on the go.

How do heat pumps work?

In simple terms, heat pumps are systems that move heat from the ground or air into your home using a small amount of energy. They work in a similar way to a refrigerator, but in reverse. A fridge directs heat to the outside, while in contrast a heat pump takes energy from the ground or air and transfers in to your home. To reach the flow temperatures necessary for heating systems, the medium used to carry the heat is compressed.

We use the most advanced components and cutting edge compressor technology in our heat pumps, ensuring they are quiet, operate with minimal vibrations and benefit from an extremely long service life.

Heat pumps enable you to take advantage of renewable energy sources and they can help you to cut your carbon footprint and lower your energy costs.

Efficiency Label

Our heat pumps are designed to be highly efficient. Take a look at their ErP ratings to see for yourself. The ErP labelling system, which was introduced by the European Union in 2015, is designed to make it easy to tell how energy efficient appliances are.
