Nightingale Village

Nightingale Village — Australia’s first carbon neutral residential precinct!
Great to be part of this exciting development showcasing such amazing talent and collaboration. To see the social, environmental and financial sustainability principles of the Nightingale Housing model applied collectively on such a scale is truly inspirational.
Nightingale ParkLife
Austin Maynard Architects have gone to painstaking lengths to plan a collection of homes with abundant light, efficient storage and simple, robust finishes. Add to this an average 9.1 star NatHERS rating across the building and communal areas reminiscent of the quintessential backyard (including the fruit trees) and you’ve got a place in which to settle long term, sustainably, socially.

This week saw the delivery and placement of our prefabricated heat pump package system for the buildings on the north side of Duckett Street to service hot water and hydronic heating requirements. The Revere CO2 Heat Pumps together with Thermex thermal storage and buffer tanks provide carbon neutral heating solutions that are sustainable and friendly to our environment. Automatic Heating have developed these systems to meet a wide range of project requirements with proven performance and sustainability outcomes.

Revere CO2 Heat Pump Advantages

The same system can be simultaneously used for Space Heating & Domestic Hot Water.

Suits Australian conditions
Accommodates ambient operating temperatures from -5°C to 43°C (Special unit available for -15°C or -20°C).

Eco friendly
The Revere® CO2 Heat Pump uses natural CO₂ refrigerant. This refrigerant has a global warming potential (GWP) of about 1/1700 that of R410 and zero ozone-depleting potential (ODP).

Heats up to 90°C
Due to its innovative design, the Revere® CO2 Heat Pump can produce hot water up to 90°C at low and high ambient temperatures (-20°C to 43°C).
