Lots of website have blogs these days so we wanted to offer something slightly different. Our Blog contains useful information about our products and feedback that we have had from customers, on the products they have bought. However Blogs often are not the most exciting things to read so we will add a dash of humour to the entries to keep the subject on a lighter note.

Air Heat Pumps told you about the Aspen condensate pumps in our previous blog but we thought that in fairness to other manufacturers we should inform you about their products too! The Blue Diamond range of condensate pumps, which are manufactured by Charles Austen, and are well known for their reliability, use a different principle of operation with a peristaltic tube compressed by the operation of a rotating cam which sucks away condensate water. The advantage of this type of pump is that no mechanical wear on the pump takes place, which occurs in piston type condensate pumps. The Mini Blue condensate pump X87-504 temperature sensing model or the constant running version X87-500 are suitable for smaller applications, whilst the Maxi Blue range of pumps are suitable for larger applications, and offer temperature sensing, drainstick sensing and the Reservoir Sensing X87-701 model. For refrigerated supermarket cabinets the Mega blue condensate pumps are most suitable, and again are available in a range of sensing options such as drainstick sensing and reservoir sensing.
New to the market is the Micro Blue condensate pump and offers a silent running pump which can be mounted in any orientation whilst operating wet and dry continuously which eliminates the risk of burning out and so no premature failures. Ideal for condensate water removal in split air conditioning systems the Micro Blue is a dual voltage pump which uses proven thermistor level sensing technology built into the reservoir to remove the risk of stuck or sunken float switches. The Micro Blue comes with a three-year warranty. With prices ranging from £76.00 to £132.00 Blue Diamond offers a value for money choice for the discerning user.
Air Heat Pumps also provides Condensate Pump Accessories and other Pumps, for example 16mm Condensate Drain from £7.99 and Condensate Drain Hose ¼” from £14.06.

Air Heat Pumps stock a wide range of Condensate Pumps – not the most interesting topic, I know, but without such items our air conditioning units would quickly become ineffective, and we should then be without the benefit of our air conditioning indoor units which, let’s face it, we do take very much for granted. The Aspen mini aqua condensate pump is one of the most popular pumps for removing condensate water from the indoor units, Model FP2406/2 consists of a reservoir and pump with all additional items to install the pump and is the smallest pump on the market. The Aspen mini lime condensate pump replacement pump pack offers a straight OEM replacement pump for installs with the mini lime pump with trunking. This is the latest silent + model part number FP3322. The pack itself contains the Aspen mini lime condensate pump and all necessary items to install the replacement pump quickly and easily. The Aspen mini lime condensate pump kit contains all the necessary items to easily install a condensate pump to remove condensate water from a wall mounted indoor unit. The trunking kit makes the installation of the pump far easier than normal condensate pumps, as the pump and reservoir itself is built into the trunking elbow. These latest model mini lime pumps are silent running and now include an anti-siphoning device. The Aspen mini orange condensate pump is designed for water removal from larger wall mounted air conditioning units. The silent running mini orange pump model FP2212 contains all items to easily install this condensate pump, typical the pump itself is fitted above a false ceiling with the reservoir component being fitted directly onto the indoor unit condensate drain. If you are looking for a reliable and quiet condensate pump the Aspen mini orange condensate pump certainly fits the bill. The Aspen 1.7 litre max high flow tank pump offers a reliable and cost effective way to remove condensate water from air conditioning and boiler systems. The pump has a built in float which activates the pump and pumps water away. The outlet is also fitted with a non-return valve to stop water siphoning back into the pump. The Aspen standard peristaltic condensate pump operates via a cooling signal that turns the pump on. Peristaltic pumps can operate even when no water is present without damage. The pump can be sited up to 8 meters away from the water source and can also pump water to discharge head height of 12 metres.

All Marstair models have an electronic controller on the front of the indoor cooling unit to easily set the desired temperature to control at. The most popular models for smaller pub type cellars is the Marstair CXEA 30 model which typically can keep a beer cellar at 12.7°c with a size up to 26 square metres in size. We can also provide all the necessary install materials to install these cellar cooling systems and technical advice if required.

The Hydropro premium range of pool heat pumps can heat your swimming pool year round as they will operate down to an outside air temperature of -10°c. These models have larger heat exchangers and use R410A refrigerant gas which enables them to operate far more efficiently over the full operating temperature range than many of the competitors. The premium range is available in size up to the Hydropro + 30T premium model.
The Hydropro 10 is one of our most popular swimming pool heaters, it has a titanium alloy heat exchanger for long life and easy to use and set up.

These heat exchangers can be installed together with either boiler systems, solar panels, heat pumps and other sources of heating. They provide an effective and convenient way of heating your swimming pool. The heat exchangers have a number of different constructions from stainless steel such as the Hi-Flow HF 75 Heat Exchanger suitable for heating standard swimming pools, to the Titan range that have titanium alloy heat exchangers. These types of heat exchangers are particular suitable for salt water pools where the environment is far more corrosive, models such as the Hi-Flow Titan T 40 Heat Exchanger are particularly popular.
Air Heat Pumps will support your choice of swimming pool heaters with water pumps, filtration products and installation accessories. We can deliver to most European locations at very competitive rates, with delivery usually taking 5 to 7 working days after the placing of the order.

Some heater options this winter for your business - 06 February 2015
The one thing you can say about Britain is you never know what type of winter will prevail. If you run a business and require to heat the premises it’s often the case that companies put off selecting a heating system until it actually becomes cold and then impulse purchase a heater without thinking of it’s suitability. With this in mind we thought we might give you a few heating options that would be suitable. Our biggest selling range of heaters are the electric fan heater style, with the 3 phase models being the most popular, ranging in output from 5kw up to 15kw. Most businesses have a 3 phase electrical supply and hence it is possible to have a fairly large heat output, heater such as the Clarke 6015 fan heater connected to this type of electrical supply. Keep in mind however with a fan heater being an electrical element heater if it’s running at 15kw as an example, you will be consuming and paying for 15kw of electricity and hence this type of heater can become expensive to run.
If your business has offices and a warehouse where you dispatch your goods and orders from you may want to provide some source of heating where employees are in the warehouse, a couple of options are available. If for instance you need to provide some background heating to the whole area we would suggest a propane space heater. Models such as the Clarke 1500 propane space heater offer high heating outputs; you will however require some ventilation in the area for this style of heater. Another scenario may be in the corner of this warehouse you have a small office dispatch area where employees work at a desk. Rather than trying to heat the whole warehouse an infra-red halogen heater would be more suitable as you can just spot heat this local area. Take a look at the Clarke range of halogen heaters and models such as the Clarke 371sp halogen heater.
Autumn is coming - 19 September 2014
Hello bloggers, sorry I haven’t been around too much lately, we have been busy bunnies trying to source fans for the amazing summer heat the UK has had recently, that combined with a holiday to Majorca anyway I digress.....
Autumn will soon be upon us once more and this lovely September weather will not be here for too much longer (I would guess) which brings me round to the topic of this blog...... The one room that adds an enormous amount of pleasure during the warmer months but can only be used to protect some of the more delicate plants during the cooler ones, it’s the conservatory of course (or orangery if you have a rather large one!). The best way to make better use of the conservatory is to install an air source heat pump. You can choose from low wall (Fujitsu) or standard high wall systems (Mitsubishi) and either of these systems can heat during the cooler months and cool during the hot sticky summer, making the conservatory potentially available all year round compared to possibly nowadays. Imagine Christmas dinner around the big dining table init eh conservatory surrounded by family (and/or friends) looking out across a beautiful crisp (and potentially snow filled) garden, what more could you ask for (besides a new car, holiday, diamonds......)
Air conditioning for the summer - 23 July 2014
The sun is shining and the weather is sweet, good old Bob Marley for those words and how true they are right now. Well what with the heat wave we are currently experiencing here in Great Britain, sales of fans have gone through the roof, but at the end of the day all fans do is move the warm, humid air around, what you need is the glory of an air conditioning unit (or two). I am a lover of the heat however I like a lot of people I speak to don’t sleep as well,
