With the heat pump market burgeoning in the UK, growing by a staggering 64% between 2020 and 2021, it’s clear demand is increasing in the UK’s residential renovation market. As a leading manufacturer, Samsung has brought a durable and sleek low carbon heating solution to the sector which is designed to disrupt the status quo and showcase how sustainable heating systems can co-exist with the latest in architectural design and innovation.
With so many homes in the UK using radiators which require hot water temperatures of 65°C or more to heat rooms effectively, there’s been a perception that heat pumps (which normally operate at temperatures between 40°C – 60°C) won’t suffice. However, with Samsung’s EHS Mono HT Quiet, which can consistently provide hot water of up to 70°C for domestic heating purposes, older residential spaces that have been heated by gas boilers now have a viable way to transition to heat pumps.
Commenting on the launch, Wim Vangeenberghe, President, Samsung Electronics Air Conditioner Europe said: “With the Future Homes Standard requiring new build homes in the UK to be future proofed with low carbon heating by 2025, change is afoot and we’re likely to see an acceleration in the switch from fossil fuel heating systems to more energy efficient heat pumps. High temperature heat pumps are presenting an interesting alternative for homeowners looking to move away from traditional heating solutions, such as gas boilers, without compromising on performance. With the launch of the new EHS Mono HT Quiet, we’re proud to offer the UK market an innovative low carbon heating solution that can help them take that important step forward.”
Other stand-out features of the new Samsung HT Quiet heat pump include:

Joseph Raftery, Heating Product Manager at Samsung Climate Solutions added: “The HT Quiet is a huge step forward in the greener heating journey, helping to take the UK closer towards net zero ambitions with appropriate government and industry support. Not only can it match boiler leaving water temperatures and is our quietest unit yet, we’ve also stress tested our new heat pump to reliably provide 100% heating performance** even in extremely cold weather as low as -25°C so this is technology you can rely on.”
The EHS Mono HT Quiet is the first in Samsung’s premium high temperature heat pump line up. It will be available in the UK from the start of November in 3 capacities (8, 12, and 14KW), including both the single and three-phase power supply system. All capacities will come in the same chassis.

Quiet Mark enjoys seeing brands ‘Make Their Mark’, using our logo in a variety of ways, to demonstrate that their product is amongst the quietest available on the market. So it was wonderful to see it at the event in product brochures, stand up banners, demonstration videos and keynote presentation slides.
