Bunt Solar partners Glen-Dimplex of Germany to introduce Heat Pump solutions in Indian market
Bengaluru, February 28, 2017: Bunt Solar India Pvt. Ltd., the Bengaluru-based solar company offering a wide portfolio of innovative solar products to energize diverse applications, has partnered Glen-Dimplex Deutschland GmbH, the specialist for electric residential heating products & complete systems, to offer Heat Pump solutions in India under the Bunt-Dimplex brand.
The exclusive partnership will enable Bunt Solar to import and market Dimplex heat pumps, especially the domestic series DHW across India. While initially the partnership will be restricted to marketing Dimplex heat pumps, going forward the two companies are exploring the feasibility of importing SKD kits and assembling the heat pumps at a dedicated facility exclusively planned for the same, thereby nurturing Bunt Solar’s “Make in India” mission.
Glen-Dimplex is delighted to have an exclusive partnership with Bunt Solar as both companies share a common goal of promoting renewable energy solutions amongst the masses, pointed out, Mr. Volker Ruhle, Director, International Sales, Glen Dimplex, Germany. While we have a range of heat pumps in our portfolio to cater to diverse applications, we will market DHW series Heat Pumps in India under the Bunt-Dimplex brand name.
According to Mr. Chandrashekar Shetty, Managing Director, Bunt Solar India Pvt. Ltd., “The introduction of heat pump is yet another initiative of Bunt Solar to aggressively pursue use of renewable energy in everyday life. Heat pumps by converting waste heat in the indoor air for hot water preparation will help consumers enormous cost saving as the heat pump consumes just 1/3rd of a diesel boiler & 1/4th of an electrical geyser to heat the same amount of water, and hence called 400% efficient heating solutions”. The Cold air produced by the heat pump as a by-product during its operation can be channelized and used for room cooling purposes.
Further, he said, Bunt-DimplexHeat Pumps will have provision to attach solar arm for domestic hot watersolution with 3 different temperature settings. Also the entire system can be remotely managed through remote control via energy management orbuilding management system or even through smart phone app. The DHW series ensures minimal energyloss owing to the optimal insulation using German technology and importantlyoffers ease of operations with capacitive touch screen. The DHW series of heat pumps are aesthetically designed and owing to itscompact dimensions not only addresses style but also installation concern asits occupies just space of a tower AC.
Bunt-Dimplexheat pumps will prove to be an efficientsolution for domestic hot water preparation in both new and existing buildings.The heat pump can cover the domestic hot water consumption in a single familyhome all year around, independent of an existing heating system. As it extractsup to 70 % of the energy required for heating from the surrounding air or fromthe waste heat found in indoor air, it will lead to substantial savings inelectricity bills as majority of homes in India still use electric geyser forhot water preparation. Bunt-Dimplex heatpumps are priced at around Rs 2.50 to 3.4 lakhs per unit as per capacity andcomes with an International warranty of 2 years. The comprehensive annual maintenancecontract is undertaken by Bunt Solar India Pvt. Ltd.
Bunt Dimplex heat pumps have a proven track record oftrouble free working for more than 20 years!
