The Ashfield development boasts A2 and A3 building energy ratings, and all units feature Dimplex A Class air source heat pumps. “The homes all feature the innovative Dimplex A Class air source heat pump system,” said Jonathan Jennings, head of heating and ventilation at Glen Dimplex Ireland. “This product brings together many years of experience in Glen Dimplex when it comes to heat pumps, and represents the best heating technologies available in the world.”
The heat pump comes in 6kW, 8kW, 12kW and 16kW outputs, and has a maximum flow temperature of up to 65C, which Jennings points out means delivering all of the hot water demand without the need for an immersion, and with “exceptionally high” seasonal efficiencies.
“The Dimplex A Class heat pump provides the construction industry with a single renewable technology to surpass the requirements of the building regulations,” Jennings added.
“Reducing heating costs and outgoings in a sustainable manner is at the forefront of a new homeowner’s minds. For years, the Ridgewood development has been a shining example of innovation in the construction industry. We are delighted to work with MKN Property to feature our market leading A Class heat pumps within the final phase of the North County Dublin development.”
