Select a configured heat pump-based heating system
Our experience in the heating industry has allowed us to develop innovative heating sets.
We know how important it is to choose heating system equipment from one manufacturer, so we offer a comprehensive solution for a complete heat pump-based heating system.
All this sounds really good, but you definitely want to find out why it is worth considering such a heating set? Let us explain!
Heat pump – the main component of every set
An indoor and outdoor heat pump unit is the foundation of the entire heating set and a crucial element in its design. For this reason, heat pump selection is very important. We should take into account not only the power of such a pump, but also a number of other key details.
In our range you can find effective and economical monobloc inverter air-to-water heat pumps. What does it mean? A heat pump is a perfect solution for single-family houses. In addition, our heat pumps have the option of controlling two heating circuits – radiators + underfloor heating and DHW (domestic hot water) circuit.
We currently offer 3 models of inverter heat pumps:
HPM2 - 8 (2,3-8,2 kW)
HPM2 - 12 (3,8-12,5 kW)
HPM2 - 16/23 (7-23 kW)
These three heat pump models differ in power and operating noise (although they all have a low sound rating). Their sound pressure is 52, 55 and 56 dB respectively. Power for such a heat pump should be selected in accordance with the needs of a given house. Read our text to find out more about this topic. „How to choose a heat pump? We show some selection mistakes”.
Once you know which heat pump fits your home, it's time to choose accessories. The main candidates here are a heat buffer and an exchanger or combined tank.
Components of the heat pump set
Well-matched additional equipment is needed for the heat pump to work efficiently. In addition to the indoor and outdoor heat pump unit, the set should include a DHW heat exchanger for heating domestic water. Heat exchangers designed to work with a heat pump have a sufficiently large coil surface. Thanks to this, they are capable of effectively giving off the heat transferred by the pump.
Every football team needs midfielders in the middle area of the field. The central heating buffer tank plays this role in a heat pump. The buffer makes the heat pump operation smooth and safe. It also supports the defrost function in the heat pump. A common solution is to use a tank containing a DHW heat exchanger and a central heating buffer tank in one housing to save space – a kind of 2 in 1.
A tank that combines the advantages of a DHW heat exchanger and central heating buffer is often called a "combined tank".
We should point out that a combined heat exchanger tank provides domestic water for a family of 4. If there are more household members in your family, then choose a second set with a separate heat exchanger and buffer.
Advantages of a heat pump-based heating system
Devices from different manufacturers is usually used in heat pump systems. The parameters of such devices are matched, and they are connected into one heating system during installation in the building to be heated.
If you want to be sure that all devices will be compatible with each other when it comes to parameters and connection possibilities, the best decision is to choose a complete system offered by the manufacturer. Thanks to this, both the purchase and after-sales service will be carried out at one place, and you will save not only money, but also a lot of time.
Matching heating system components in the HPM2.V heating system
By choosing the HPM2.V package, you get a monobloc inverter heat pump with EVI (enhanced vapour injection) and smooth power modulation in the range from 2.3 kW to 12.5 kW (depending on the selected model). Simply put, pumps have very broad power setting options. This translates into lower heating bills. The pump uses the ecological R32 refrigerant.
The set also includes an indoor unit with:
- hydraulic group in the form of a three-way valve – more information here
- safety valve
- diaphragm vessel
- automatic air vent
- electronic manometer
Thanks to this solution, you don’t have to purchase and place these elements separately in the system. The system is also equipped with a heating unit having power of 6 or 9 kW, depending on the type.

In addition, we get a combined SWVPC tank, which includes the following in one housing: a 250 litre DHW heat exchanger, a set of coils with a total length of 2.7 m² and a buffer tank having a capacity of 60 l. This is a perfect configuration for families of up to 4 people. It is worth noting that in the most powerful 16/23 kW pumps the heat exchanger and buffer are included separately.
More hot water thanks to the use of combined DHW heat exchanger and central heating buffer
When choosing a heat pump-based heating system, it is a good idea to pay attention to the consumption of hot water and the capacity of the hot water exchanger The SWVPC tank available in the HPM.V package is suitable for 4 people in a household.
More people will use hot water? In this case, choose the HPM.P package, which contains not only the outdoor and indoor heat pump unit, but also the SWPC hot water exchanger and the SVK buffer tank. The exchanger with a capacity of 300 litres can provide hot water for up to 6 people, and the surface area of its coil is 4.2 m².
It is the largest heating surface among Kospel heat exchangers and comes with a full range of pump types – 8 kW to 16/23 kW with modulation of 2.3 – even up to 23 kW. Thanks to this, even a family of 6 will never again experience the problem of "who has used up all the hot water?!".
The SVK buffer tank has connections at the top. This solution allows the buffer tank to be placed directly under the hanging heat pump indoor unit.
