Heating with air-to-water heat pumps is a process based on absorbing heat from the air and transferring it into a heating system. Thus taking advantage of a regenerative source of energy, this approach is future-oriented and helps conserve limited natural resources. The air-to-water heat pump by Buderus is a smart, high-performance system for this type of energy generation. In an impressive manner, the design of the system succeeds in making its high inner technical quality clearly visible on the outside. Marked by the high-quality material Titanium glass, the system has an unobtrusive and elegant appearance. Featuring a compact housing, it takes up only little space in the home and fascinates with its purist design. The heat pump is operated via a touch-sensitive control unit that is consistently fitted onto the housing and sits behind an ergonomically arranged flap, which makes even complex settings particularly simple. Moreover, an integrated Internet gateway offers uncomplicated and intuitive operation via mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets. Following a modular approach, this air-to-water heat pump can also be easily extended with additional renewable energy sources. Available in black and white, the path-breaking design of this system sets new standards in the market for heat pumps.
