Daikin Altherma is the commercial name given to the Daikin air source air-to-water heat pump system. The Daikin Altherma system is designed to replace conventional fossil fuel boilers (Gas / LPG / Oil / direct electric) by providing 3-5 times more energy efficient heating and hot water to family homes.
With room and water heating representing over 80% of UK residential energy consumption, replacing conventional central heating boilers with Altherma™ air to water heat pumps is the single largest contribution householders can make towards reducing carbon emissions.
The Daikin Altherma split system
Altherma is a split system consisting of an outdoor unit and an indoor hydro box that can be connected to all standard low temperature radiators and under floor heating systems
Altherma Weather compensation
Whatever the temperature outside Altherma optimises the temperature inside. Altherma has weather compensation built in as standard into its integrated control system, allowing it to minimise energy input to achieve optimum temperature conditions. Compared to most systems Altherma will be more efficient and will cost less to use.
Solar Panel Connection
The Altherma system can be perfectly combined with solar collectors to produce hot water. The sun provides 30 to 70% of the energy required for your hot water needs.
Altherma Outdoor unit
Altherma uses a natural, renewable source of energy i.e. air. The outdoor unit derives heat from the surrounding air and raises its temperature until it is hot enough to heat a home. This heat is then transmitted to the indoor unit through heat transfer fluid. The compact outdoor unit is easily installed and can also be used in properties without a garden.
Altherma Indoor hydro box
The indoor hydro unit heats the water that circulates through your low temperature radiators, floor heating systems or fan coil units and provides you with domestic hot water. If the user opts for the combination of heating and cooling then the indoor unit can also decrease the water temperature to provide cooling.
Altherma Domestic hot water tank
A purpose built stainless steel water tank, constructed to maintain the highest levels of energy efficiency is used to meet domestic hot water needs. The combination of an electric booster heater in the upper part of the tank and a heat exchanger in the lower part ensures the lowest possible energy consumption with rapid water heating. In addition, a built in function raises the water temperature to 70C or higher at least once a week to remove any possibility of Legionella growth.
Altherma System controls
The control system which operates Altherma is built into the casing of the indoor unit and is very simple to use. With this integrated control, it is possible to regulate the heating according to the individual needs of the user. It is easy to set up a full 7 day programme and in this way , temperature is reduced automatically at night or during holidays and increased when the user gets up or returns home. The system can also be combined with additional temperature regulating systems with separate thermostats for living rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, etc.
The Altherma Monobloc unit combines the outdoor unit and indoor unit in one. In this system the water pipes rather than refrigerant lines, run indoors from the outdoor unit making installation much quicker. The system is connect able to under floor heating, low temperature radiators and fan coil units, just like the standard Altherma unit.
