Cost effective and energy saving use of heat from the indoor air, outdoor air or extract air for DHW heating
The Vitocal 262-A DHW heat pump uses heat from the indoor air, outdoor air or extract air for cost effective and energy saving DHW heating.
The Vitocal 262-A DHW heat pump is an ideal addition to the existing heating system. In the new Vitopearlwhite design, the appliance is also suitable for installation near the living space. The wall mounted version is particularly compact. The Vitocal 262-A provides low cost and energy saving DHW heating. To do so, the universal unit extracts heat from the outdoor air, as well as from the ambient air and extract air indoors.
Typical applications include laundry rooms, bakeries or server rooms, where a large amount of heat is regularly produced.
Special features of the Vitocal 262-A
Environmentally responsible refrigerant
The new refrigerant circuit sets standards in terms of efficiency and climate protection. It is operated with the HFO refrigerant (hydrofluoroolefin) R1234ze, which has a GWP (global warming potential) of 7, i.e. approximately comparable to that of a natural refrigerant. Common refrigerants such as R134a, on the other hand, have a much higher GWP value of over 1400.
With the new generation of refrigerants, the Vitocal 262-A DHW heat pumps already meet the requirements of the European F-gas Regulation, which apply beyond 2030. This makes them particularly futureproof to operate.
Three versions to cater for every need
For mono mode operation, the heat pump is available without an internal indirect coil (type T2E-ze). A DHW cylinder with 300 litre capacity is integrated. Alternatively, the hybrid version with an integral indirect coil (type T2H-ze) can be selected. This is recommended for retrofitting and upgrading existing systems.
The intelligent control unit then always selects the optimum operating mode – heat pump or heat generator – taking into account energy prices and primary energy factors. The Vitocal 262-A preheats the water in the integral 300 litre cylinder. The existing heat generator is only used for reheating if required. This ensures maximum DHW convenience at all times.
In the space saving wall mounted version (type T2W-ze), DHW heating is provided by an adjacent DHW cylinder (160 to 500 litre capacity).
Dry immersion heater
The electric version (type T2E-ze) is factory-fitted with a dry immersion heater. The hybrid version with indirect coil (type T2H-ze) can be retrofitted with an immersion heater if required.
The Viessmann Vitocal 262-A is Heat Pump KEYMARK certified.
