Why heat pump?
3 SYSTEMS IN 1: HEATING, COOLING AND HOT WATER
Daikin Altherma is a total heating and domestic hot water system with an option for cooling. Based on heat pump technology, it represents a flexible and cost-effective alternative to a fossil fuel boiler. The inherent energy efficiency of Daikin Altherma makes it an ideal solution for reduced energy consumption and low CO2 emissions.
Depending on the model and conditions, a Daikin Altherma heat pump delivers about 5kWh of usable heat for every kWh of electricity it consumes. This means approximately 4/5 of the heat is free! Talk about a good investment.
The Daikin Altherma heat pump uses a sustainable energy source: extracting heat from the outside air. In a closed loop containing a liquid refrigerant, a thermodynamic cycle is created through evaporation, condensation, compression and expansion. This “pumps” heat from a lower to a higher temperature level. Via a heat exchanger the heat gained is transferred to your home’s warm water distribution system. This can be under-floor heating, low temperature radiators and/or fan coil units. For cooling, the system operates in reverse.
THE HIGH EFFICIENCY SYSTEM
Daikin Altherma can heat your home up to 5 times more efficiently than a traditional heating system based on fossil fuels or electricity. By making use of the heat in the outside air, the system uses much less energy while you enjoy a stable and pleasant level of comfort. Also, maintenance requirements are minimal, keeping running costs low. Thanks to advanced compressor technology, the energy savings are even greater.
