Why Choose Daikin?
A heat pump is a system designed to extract and transport heat, allowing you to maintain constant indoor temperature all year round. For complete comfort, Daikin Altherma can also provide you with hot water.
How it works:
Heat pumps extract heat from the outside air, even in cold weather. They use an electrically powered compressor and are extremely effective at heating any home. Daikin units use state-of-the-art technology to keep your energy bills as low as possible. With a Daikin heat pump, 80% of the energy used to heat your home comes from the outside air, a free and infinitely renewable resource. Daikin heat pumps run at low sound levels by using a specially designed fan to optimise airflow and reduce noise.
For a cooling mode:
It's so simple, the system is reversed! Which means the unit extracts heat from the indoor air.
There are three types of heat pumps:
Do I need to service my heat pump and how much maintenance is required?
A heat pump system will benefit from annual servicing to ensure that all the mechanical connections are sound, settings are at their optimum and that the heat collector is working properly. Regular professional servicing may also be required to validate extended warranties, this varies from manufacture to manufacture.
Can air source heat pumps still deliver heat to your home in winter?
It might seem impossible, but air source heat pumps can still deliver heat to your home when outdoor temperatures are as cold as -20⁰C.
Can I link solar panels to the heat pump?
Solar PV can be integrated to work with your heat pump system depending on the make and model of your heat pump.
Can a heat pump cool my home in the summer?
Certain types of heat pumps offer the ability to provide cooling when needed.
Are Heat pumps environmentally friendly?
Yes, heat pumps are officially classed as providers of renewable energy by the EU and the International Energy Agency. Using a heat pump will therefore be an easy way usually of complying with your needs for renewables in a new build for Part L regulations provided that the house is well insulated, and the system works well.
