Heat pumps

Heat pumps absorb energy from their surroundings and then feed it into the heating or service water system.

Low-noise and efficient components
for heat pumps

Today's heating systems demand concepts based on renewable energies. That is why heat pumps are becoming a key factor in sustainable heat generation. The demand is for efficient, quiet products that are suitable for indoor, outdoor or hybrid use, with performance adapted intelligently to actual conditions, and compatible with the use of natural refrigerants.


The advantages of fans from ebm‑papst in heat pumps:

  • Great efficiency thanks to EC technology and an integrated diffuser
  • Enhanced air performance with simultaneous noise reduction
  • Speed adjustment provides a high degree of flexibility
  • Perfectly coordinated individual components for easy plug & play
  • Compatible with flammable refrigerants

Quiet and efficient:

Home ventilation combined with heat pump

The air/water heat pump uses outside air to heat the inside of the building. Heat pumps are suitable for universal use. They can be installed both in gardens and in basements. In combination with a ventilation system, heating and ventilation are housed in a single device including heat recovery.

The air/water heat pump uses outside air to heat the inside of the building.
