Gas heat pump, for outdoor installation, with water temperatures up to 65 °C for heating and up to 70 °C for domestic hot water.

Robur K18 Mini Air Source Gas Heat Pump

The Robur K18 mini air source gas heat pump is ideal for domestic and small commercial heating. It is the world’s first – and only – gas heat pump that can be used in residential accommodation. It is also ideal for small-scale commercial use, such as in schools, church halls and care homes.

The unit is installed outside and can be used for new builds as well as for retrofits and upgrading existing systems.

The K18 has the following advantages:

  • Smaller capacity 18kW gas heat pump, designed for domestic and small commercial use
  • A world first – the only gas heat pump for domestic use
  • Efficient gas powered unit that reduces the load on electricity requirements – saves about 38% of energy costs
  • Can be fitted by gas-qualified plumbers and integrates with existing radiators (ESS will commission the K18 unit itself)
  • For outdoor installation
  • Quieter than an electric heat pump because it has no motor or compressor – good for situations with noise or planning restrictions
  • Similarly priced to an electric heat pump
  • Provides heating output up to 65 degrees and hot water up to 70 degrees
  • It is a monobloc heat pump not requiring fridge pipework, and is exempt from F-Gas
