Heat Pump Buffer Tanks by Sunsystem are for the storage of hot or cold water generated by a heat pump. It can also be used in heating installations as a buffer tank and perform the role of both energy storage and a hydraulic system equaliser. Heat Pump Buffer Tanks being used as a hydraulic system equaliser prevents frequent switching on and off of the heat pump; known as cycling. As well as a proportional hydraulic load between the different circuits of the system.
