How to get the best
of both worlds
Picture it now. You’ve got solar panels on the roof, capturing
nature’s best energy source, lowering your heating bills and creating
zero emissions. What could be better?
The only snag is, the sun doesn’t always shine and its difficult to store solar energy for
longer periods. That’s why NIBE has come up with a solution for combining solar energy
with a heat pump. This means everyone can enjoy free energy from the sun, even if you
live in a country where daily sunshine is not guaranteed.
On sunny days, the NIBE controller automatically channels solar energy into your home’s
heating system. When it’s cloudy or dark, your heat pump kicks in to keep your home at
a comfortable temperature and ensure hot water is always available.
If you already have a heat pump, you can further reduce costs and emissions by connecting it to a solar energy system. If you’re building a new house or refurbishing an old one,
why not install a complete system that combines heat pump and solar panels? Or, if you
prefer, you can install a heat pump now with a view to adding solar panels later.
Combining a heat pump with a solar energy solution also reduces the wear and tear on
the compressor and gives it a longer life span.
And let’s not forget that investing in a clean, modern low cost heating system, always
increases the value of your home.

Why choose solar energy?
The sun is an abundant, free, zero-emission source of energy. It
can be used for hot tap water production alone, or in a combined
system for both domestic heating and hot water. If you have a
swimming pool, solar energy can be used to heat that too.
4 N I B E s o l a r h e at p u m p s y s t e m s
It’s free and it’s unlimited
Once your solar solution is up and running, the energy it provides
is absolutely free of charge and supplies are unlimited. A lot of
effort has been devoted to developing solar heating solutions in
recent years, with the result that the price of equipment has steadily
decreased. In the meantime, electricity prices have continued to rise
and supplies of fossil fuels have become more insecure. This trend
is expected to continue in the future, making solar energy a more
attractive option than ever.
Your choice makes a difference!
In recent years, concerns about climate change have driven the interest
in alternative energy sources from fringe to mainstream. Solar energy
is the queen of all ‘green’ energy sources. It is not only free; it is silent,
renewable and produces no air or water pollution. When you install a
solar energy solution, you are also helping to reduce CO2 emissions.
Guaranteed energy supplies
Combine your solar panels with a heat pump, and you can take advantage of solar energy whenever it’s available, without being fully
dependent upon it. NIBE offers three different kinds of heat pumps
– ground source, air source and exhaust air – all of which can be
connected to solar panels. Which one you choose will depend on
factors such as how big your garden is, whether or not you live by a
lake, if the land is suitable for drilling etc. Your NIBE dealer has all the
necessary expertise to help you make this decision.
Increase your home’s resale value
Any property with a modern, low energy heating system is highly
attractive in today’s market. It’s a comfort for potential buyers to
know that once installed, a NIBE solar energy/heat pump solution
not only provides reliable, environmentally friendly energy, but that
it more or less takes care of itself! Since the only piece of equipment
with moving parts is the circulation pump, maintenance costs are
very low.
Invest in a combined solar energy /heat pump system when you refurbish
and enjoy low cost, low emission energy for years to come.

Solar hours
The 20/20/20 European directive imposes compulsory targets on the
EU’s 27 member states, specifying that 20% of energy consumption
must be met by renewable sources by 2020. Since both solar energy
and heat pumps are classified as renewable energy sources, their
installation will help member states reach this ambitious target.
What’s more, some local or regional authorities are offering homeowners subsidies to switch their existing heating systems to a
renewable source. Why not find out what rules apply in your
area? See www.nibe.eu for more information.

How does it work?
Solar energy is created by light and heat which is emitted by
the sun, in the form of electromagnetic radiation. With today’s
technology, it is possible to capture this radiation and turn it
into usable forms of energy, such as heating.
Normally, the technical feasibility and economical viability of using
solar energy would depend on the amount of available sunlight
(solar radiation) in the area where you live. Now, thanks to NIBE’s
combined solar energy/heat pump system many more people can
enjoy this clean, free energy source on sunny days.
Step by step
1. When the temperature in the solar panels is higher than the
temperature in the storage tank, the solar station is automatically triggered into action and starts transferring the heat which
has been collected from the sun into the tank.
2. When it’s no longer sunny, the solar panels cool off and the
solar stationt1
stops and uses energy from the heat pump instead.
3. If the sun shines again, the panels warm up and the solar station starts up again. In fact, it can switch back and forth all
day long. In a well-insulated NIBE water tank, heat from solar
t3
panels can be stored for several days.
4. When the temperature in the tank reaches the desired level,
the solar station stops and is in fact inhibited from transferring
heat until the temperature has dropped again, thus preventing
overheating.
5. During extended dull or dark periods, the heat pump becomes
your main energy source. It automatically takes over the job of
generating the energy your home needs to remain at a comfort2
table temperature
and provides sufficient domestic hot water.
In a combined solution including solar panels and a heat pump,
the system prioritises solar energy when available, since it is cost
and emission free. The heat pump is the next most efficient energy
source, which generates approximately four times as much energy
than is needed to drive the pump.

You always have the option to boost energy supplies with e.g. a
traditional gas or oil boiler, should the need arise. However, as the
graph shows, the NIBE system will use this as a last resort since oil
and gas are both more costly and polluting than solar panels or a
heat pump.

Exhaust air heat pumps
When to choose an exhaust air heat pump
An exhaust air heat pump is economical to install since it does not
require any drilling or digging work and the heat pump functions at
a constant level all year round. It is recommended for new houses or
ones that were built with the necessary ventilation system from the
start. The building should be well-insulated to get the best results.
During the coldest weather, electricity or some other ‘comfort boosting’ source of energy may be needed, so bear this in mind when
calculating your total costs.
All the NIBE exhaust air heat pumps shown here can be connected
with solar panels in order to exploit the cost and environmental advantages of solar energy for heating your home and hot water. The
sun’s energy heats up the water in the storage tank and warm water
is fed into the domestic hot water and the heating system.
With the NIBE solar control system, heat from the solar panels is
transferred to the storage tank. When heat is needed, the control
system sets a pump in motion which transfers heat from the storage
tank to the heat pump, making it available for distribution into your
home.
In other words, when the temperature in the tank is high enough,
the heat pump’s compressor is blocked, allowing your home’s heating and hot water needs to be provided by solar energy alone.

Ground source heat pumps
When to choose a ground source heat pump
Taking advantage of a more-or-less constant temperature under the
ground, a ground source heat pump is one of the most reliable and
cost effective energy sources available.
If you have a large garden, heat can be extracted from a surface soil
collector; when space is limited, a bore hole can be drilled into the
bedrock under your land. Both options imply a one-off drilling or
digging cost at installation. Electricity is required to drive the heat
pump, but since it generates is approximately four times as much
energy as it uses, you will enjoy up to 80 % lower heating costs
compared to a traditional fossil-fuel based system.
NIBE™ F1145
The NIBE ground source heat pump shown here can be connected
with solar panels in order to exploit the cost and environmental advantages of solar energy for heating your home and hot water. The
sun’s energy heats up the water in the accumulator and warm water
is shared with the tank’s domestic hot water container.
When the temperature in the tank is high enough, the heat pump’s
compressor will not start up, allowing your home’s heating and hot
water needs to be provided by solar energy alone.
Belonging to the new generation of ground source heat pumps, the
NIBE F1145 is more efficient and, thanks to a highly intuitive control panel,
more user-friendly than ever.
It extracts heat from one of three sources - the rock under your land, a
nearby water source or the earth under your lawn- and uses the energy to
heat your home’s water-based radiators and hot tap water. It can reduce
your energy costs by up to 80% (which means a dramatic reduction in both
heating bills and CO2 emissions). NIBE F1145 is suitable for heating single and
multi-family houses and industrial buildings.

Water heaters
Choose the right tank
Solar panels do not have to be connected to the house’s radiators,
but can be used to provide hot water alone. This simple system makes
it possible to exploit solar energy to heat your tap water throughout
the year. However, another energy source will sometimes be needed
to boost the water temperature to the desired level.
The size of hot water tank you choose will depend on the number of
solar panels installed. You need roughly 100 litres’ tank capacity for
every 1 -2 m2 of solar panels.
NIBE™ COMPACT SOL
NIBE COMPACT SOL is a copper lined electric water heater designed to
run on solar energy.
The water tank consists of a steel vessel with a copper lining to protect it

NIBE™ QMS
Designed for indirect heating, the QMS heats your domestic hot water by
means of solar energy, using district or central heating as a supplement. It
has two enameled coil circuits, one for solar energy and one for heating
from a secondary source, be it gas, oil burner or district heating.
These purpose-built heating coils ensure the efficient heating of tap water
and guarantee you always have a plentiful supply. They are coated with
enamel and fitted with an anode, preventing corrosion and giving the
heater a long service life. They are also designed to provide maximum
cooling of the primary side with minimum pressure drop, resulting in a
highly cost-efficient operation. The QMS water heater is completely insulated with CFC free EPS cups to minimise heat loss and reduces running
costs. It is easy to install and maintain.

Solar energy components
NIBE Solar controller
Solar pumpstation
Prioritise the ‘greenest’ and
cheapest energy source
Connects the solar panels and
storage tank
NIBE solar controller steers the transfer
of heat from the solar panels* to the
storage tank, and then transfer of heat
from the storage tank into the heatpump according to the present need
of energy.
It is designed to ensure an optimal interplay and function of the NIBE combined Solar/Heatpump system. The
solar energy is always prioritised.
Simplifying the installation and commissioning process of your solar energy system the solar station contains
all the valves needed to connect the
solar panels to the accumulator tank.
And thanks to the built in air vent, the
system gets a reliable function.
* Except for the NIBE F1145, F1245, F370, F470
heatpumps which have integrated solar controller
(accessory relay box is needed)
The pump used is a low energy pump
that further minimizes the operating
cost of your solar system.
Storage tank with solar coil
Charging unit
Stores the heat
until its needed
Protects and optimises the
charging process
The accumulator tank stores the heat
from the sun until you need it for either
hot tap water, or to heat your waterfilled radiators or underfloor heating
system.
The charging unit is needed in order
to protect the heat pump from getting
exposed to dangerously high temperatures when heat is transfered from the
storage tank to the heatpump.
The storage tank is insulated in order
to minimize heatlosses.
And important, it is also optimising the
layering in the tank.
Solar panels
Collects the solar energy from your roof for further transport
to your accumulator tank.
The flat solar panel
The vacuum tube panel
A highly popular type of solar panel.
Very good performance in areas with
cold climates.
• Its often robust design gives a long
life time.
• Suitable for normal installations.
• Lots of value for the money.
• Especially suitable for low to middle
range temperature systems and not
very cold climates.
• More efficient at higher working
temperatures as in district heating
systems and industrial applications.
• More even between good and bad
days.
• More even between summer and
winter.
• Safer in windy areas if the panels
are raised above the roofs angle.
• Some vacuum tubes need a
minimum angle to function.
• Are not losing so much on roofs
not well oriented to the sun.

Exhaust air heat pump NIBE F640 with solar energy for heating and hot water.
Solar panels heat up the accumulator tank. When the temperature in the tank is high enough, the energy can be
used either to heat up the domestic hot water or the heating system. When the temperature is even higher, the
compressor is blocked enabling all the energy for heating to be provided by the sun.

Ground source heat pump NIBE F1145 with solar energy for heating and hot water
When the solar panels provide a high enough temperature, both the house’s heating system and hot water can
be heated by the sun on its own. In that case, the heat pump is stopped automatically. When more energy is
needed, the sun can still contribute, as long as the temperature from the solar panels is high enough.

New times call for a new approach
We all know we’ve got to reduce emissions.
The question is how?
“Green” thinking might once have been a luxury, but lately it has become a necessity that none of us can afford to ignore. Increasingly,
the reduction of CO2 emissions is becoming a legal requirement as
well as an environmental necessity.
Over 70% of an average home’s CO2 emissions are caused by its
heating and hot water systems. In order to reduce this figure, we
need to start implementing greener, more sustainable technologies
across the board. Only then, will we see a significant reduction in
CO2 emissions.
In the meantime the price of traditional energy sources are rising
steadily, with the result that more and more people feel inclined to
consider alternative, more efficient energy sources.
Now their customers have started demanding a solution, builders, architects
and property developers can no longer ignore the need to employ alternative
technologies that make better use of the world’s energy resources.
2 4 N I B E s o l a r h e at p u m p s y s t e m s
Combine two clean, renewable energy sources
and get the best of both worlds.
There are a number of reasons for this
Neither a heat pump nor a solar energy system uses any combustion
process or other energy to generate heat. It simply uses the heat
that already exists in the air, ground or water source, and puts it to
use to heat your home. This means lower emissions.
Secondly, in comparison with other heating systems, the amount of
electricity needed is low. That’s because electricity is not the main
energy source, it’s only needed to run the heat pump and enable
the heat extraction process. And the solar panels require almost no
electricity at all. While the exact energy saving varies according to
what you benchmark against, it generally measures between 60%
and 80%.
Another interesting point to consider is that heat pumps and solar
panels, like every other manufactured item contains what we call
“embedded energy”. That is, the energy required to make the product and transport it from the factory to the site where it will be used.
By continually improving its own processes, NIBE seeks to minimise
the amount of embedded energy in its products; to build and transport them in the most environmentally friendly way. Once installed
in your home, a NIBE solar energy/ heat pump system immediately
starts to deliver an environmental “payback” in the form of reduced
energy consumption and emissions.
Working towards a zero carbon future
The drive to reduce energy consumption and the impact its
use has on the environment is crucial and increasingly important to us all. Why not take a step closer towards a zero
carbon future and power your heat pump using a renewable energy source such as wind or hydro energy?

CASE
An environmentally sustainable heating system
which makes you feel good, inside and out!

The background
Results
When Jonas Fröberg bought his family home near Karlskrona in
southern Sweden, it had a floor area of only 80 square metres and
needed extensive renovation. The original wooden building from
1938 was only intended as a summer house, so it had an antiquated
electric boiler for hot water and an inefficient heating system running on direct electricity.
The NIBE F2025 can reduce energy costs by as much as 65%. In
the Fröbergs’ home, this means an annual consumption of less than
10 000 kW per year compared to 25 000 kW with traditional electric heating for a house this size. In addition, the solar panels cover
all hot water requirements for half the year, while radiators aren’t
needed.
Over two years, the Fröbergs converted the summer house into a
permanent home, extending the living space to 200 square metres
over two levels and installing proper insulation and energy-saving
windows. During the renovation, they faced important choices
about what kind of energy source would supply their home’s heating and hot water. Their main concern was to install a system with
the lowest possible energy consumption and environmental impact.
Fröberg felt strongly that an investment in a complete, efficient and
environmentally sustainable system was the right way to go.
On grey days in winter, when the solar panels can’t provide enough
heat, the compressor sets in motion; when it gets even colder and
the heat pump can’t provide enough energy, electricity is still available as back up. The sun replaces some of the energy that would
have been pumped by the compressor, so for every kilowatt of energy used to run the heating system, 4 or 5 are produced.
Solution
The Fröbergs opted for the NIBE F2025 14 kW air/water heat
pump, together with solar panels. Combining solar panels with
a heat pump allows them to take advantage of solar energy
whenever it’s available, without being fully dependent on it. The
owners also chose a powerful compressor in order to extract as
much heat as possible from the outdoor air in winter. When the
weather is mild, such a powerful compressor requires a big water
tank to work properly. Hence the choice of the NIBE EVP 500,
an all-in-one module which provides hot water for the heating
system in the whole house, as well as hot tap water.
The Fröbergs’ commitment to the environment goes even further.
“I buy the electricity needed to drive the heat pump from a nearby
wind turbine, which makes my home into a carbon neutral system,”
says Jonas.

NIBE of Sweden
Living in harmony with nature
The Swedes have a long and impressive track record of clever,
money-saving innovations that use resources sparingly. The simple
reason for this is that Sweden was historically a poor agrarian
country. A harsh winter climate made food scarce for many
months, necessitating careful forward planning.
Today, Sweden is a technologically advanced country with a
successful economy, so this is no longer necessary. However,
the mindset continues to be manifested in the form of fabulous,
cost-saving innovations.
NIBE is a perfect example of the economical Swedish mind at work!
The company was founded by Nils Bernerup in 1952, after a particularly cold winter. And over the last 60 years it has become Sweden’s
leading supplier of domestic heating products, continually driving
the development of ever-more efficient heating methods.
Early products included water heaters and pressure vessels. In the
1970s these were supplemented by electric boilers. Heat pumps
and a wide range of other heating products that meet the needs
of the European markets were later added to the mix.
Nowadays, NIBE is a leading player in both heating and cooling
systems around Europe. We strive to offer innovative solutions
that not only save energy but which also reduce CO2 emissions.
Together with our customers, we’re working towards a more sustainable future, one home at a time.
