Vent-Axia forms heat pump division

The Vent-Axia heat pump division will offer both ground source and air source heat pumps aimed at the domestic and light commercial markets.

Richard Paine has joined Vent-Axia’s new heat pump division as product marketing manager, having spent seven years working in the HVAC market, while Cliff Arnold has been appointed sales manager of the new division. Arnold has spent the last five years in the renewables installation sector.

“Against the backdrop of tackling climate change and maintaining secure energy supplies, it is imperative that we embrace renewable energy technology as part of a solution to reduce the demand for fossil fuels and in turn reducing the levels of CO2 emitted in the UK,” said Richard Paine.

“With the launch of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) in April 2011, renewables will become an increasingly attractive option for homeowners, specifiers and landlords. Heat pumps in combination with low carbon ventilation will make a valuable contribution to reducing the carbon produced by UK homes,” said Cliff Arnold.
