OCHSNER is Smart Grid ready
The Smart Grid functionality gives you access to attractive tariffs for operating a heat pump in the grid of the future. Smart Grids serve to balance out peaks, Smart Grid-enabled heat pumps switch on if surplus power is available at favourable tariffs and store this energy in the form of hot water.
OCHSNER Smart Home
OCHSNER can be integrated at any time into Smart Home systems via central building management systems and Smart Grid interfaces. Not only that – if you wish, you can control your heat pump via PC, tablet or smartphone from home or anywhere else in the world.
In silent mode, the fan speed is reduced according to a fixed proportional function depending on the outside air temperature. This ensures that the system's already extremely low noise emissions in standard operation are reduced even further, for example in summer during DHW or pool heating. OCHSNER supplies this function as standard for all appliances in the GMLW series.
OCHSNER is ErP ready
All OCHSNER heat pumps and cylinders comply with statutory energy labelling in line with eco-design guidelines. The energy label gives you information on the efficiency of new heat generators – OCHSNER heat pumps achieve performance figures that no other heating system can offer.
With OCHSNER heat pump systems you are guaranteed a futureproof heating system (with active cooling on request) with a heat source that never fails and that will remain affordable. You cannot put a price on wellbeing and quality of life.
A heat pump heating system consists of a heat source (water, ground or air) and the heat consumer system (e.g. underfloor heating).
All system components must be perfectly matched in order to ensure flawless operation and high performance factors (seasonal performance factor). To achieve this, OCHSNER takes on the complete engineering of the entire heat pump heating system. Our system partners are happy to advise you and install your system professionally. OCHSNER offers you reliability, not empty promises.
Heating and cooling versions
Every year, we suffer summer heat waves, with the number of days over 30 °C increasing all the time.
The need for cooling homes is steadily growing and, according to EU studies, the demand for cooling is rising more strongly than the demand for heating. In cars and in many offices, air conditioning is already a matter of course, and no one wants to do without this convenience.
Why not demand the same convenience for your own home. After all you spend a large proportion of your life there. On request, OCHSNER heat pumps are available with cooling as an additional function, for every kind of heat source.
A heat pump is designed to extract renewable heating energy from the environment – from the air, groundwater and the ground, and transfer this energy to the heating circuit.
The conditions of the building and plot determine which heat pump system is best suited. Generally, groundwater, the ground itself or ambient air can serve as heat suppliers, each of which is "tapped" in different ways. The heat source chosen for generating thermal energy determines the type of heat pump used.
Air as heat source
Air is available everywhere in unlimited supply. OCHSNER has developed horizontal split system technology even further, to make air source heat pumps more economical than ever. This system is great for new build and even better for modernising heating systems in existing buildings. Find out more ...
Water as heat source
Where groundwater is available at an acceptable depth and in sufficient amounts, it offers the best possible seasonal performance factors. A constant temperature of 8 to 12 °C guarantees an optimum heating operation. Find out more ...
Ground as heat source – brine
With this system, geothermal energy is picked up by means of a brine circuit and transferred to the heat pump. Geothermal brine collectors can be installed in three different ways. Find out more ...
Ground as heat source – direct heating
The ground acts as a free and plentiful heat store, making it an ideal heat source. Horizontal collectors work day and night, continuously harvesting what is, in essence, stored solar energy. When sized correctly, sufficient source energy will be available even in deepest winter. Find out more ...
OTE home climate manager
OCHSNER focused on achieving an intelligent, user friendly concept in its new OTE home climate manager for heat pump system control.
Advanced control technology offers you the greatest convenience, maximum energy efficiency and the highest degree of operational reliability.
