Many have heard of ground source heat pumps and the high efficiency levels they can offer but few have realised that air source heat pumps can also offer significantly higher levels of efficiency when compared to traditional methods of heating our homes and offices.
Air source heat pumps are much easier to install than ground source so they are more suitable for a wide variety of properties from apartments, detached houses and offices.
The Daikin Althermaharvests renewable, low-grade energy from the outdoor air and upgrades this into useful heat to supply a home with hot water and heating. For every 1kW of electricity used by the Daikin Altherma, you will get at least 3kW of heating energy.
It can work efficiently all year round even if the outdoor temperature should drop to -25ºC .
The Daikin Altherma range of air source heat pump systems have been developed by Daikin specifically for the UK and Irish climate and bring advanced, inverter-driven technology refined in the commercial heating sector to your home.
Daikin Althermasource heat pumps provide hot water either to traditional radiators or under floor heating systems.
Traditionally heat pumps have been seen as only suitable for under floor heating, however with the advanced control system of Daikin Althermaand its ability to provide optimum variable flow temperature control, radiators can now be easily provided with the hot water they need and prove to be a very efficient option.
Daikin Altherma low temperature is the ideal solution for new build applications and complete renovations, delivering the required heating, cooling and domestic hot water capacities for the house, with the best possible efficiencies.
When replacing an oil boiler by Daikin Altherma high temperature, no need to replace the existing radiators, as water temperatures of up to 80°C are reached with heat pump operation only.
A new opportunity when replacing a gas boiler is Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump, a cost efficient solution combining a new gas condensing boiler and the most efficient air-to-water heat pump system on the market.
