Daikin’s versatile air to air heat pumps are ideal, whether you are renovating your home or involved in a new build project. Whatever the age of your property, you can depend on a Daikin heat pump air conditioning solution to last for many years to come, providing reliable service whatever the weather.
Energywise Ireland supplies and installs Daikin Altherma air to air heat pumps. An air to air heat pump make use of the heat that is available in the outside air! The main difference is that this system does NOT transfer the heat harvested to radiators or underfloor heating but the heat is blown directly from an indoor unit.
For every Kilowatt electrical input you will get 2-4 kilowatt in free energy from the outside air! Daikin Altherma air to air heat pumps are energy efficient and can make significant savings on your energy bills when compared to other electric heating systems.
The Daikin air to air heat pump does so much more than air conditioning, simply cooling the air; it offers the perfect balance of temperature, fresh air and humidity, even purifying the air, so that you can enjoy the perfect comfort levels all year around. However, rising energy prices and ever growing concerns about the environment mean that air conditioning must be highly energy-efficient too. A Daikin air conditioning heat pump system offers a complete all-in-one solution for superior performance and energy efficiency, to protect the environment in which you live.
It’s more important than ever for air conditioning to be as efficient as possible due to increasing energy costs. Our heat pump air conditioners are as energy smart as they are stylish, with room-specific controls providing weekly scheduling and presence sensors to reduce energy consumption when nobody is at home.
Daikin has won several design awards for its stylish indoor units. Daikin offer a wide range of wall mounted, floor standing and concealed ceiling units to suit any interior. The units are almost unnoticed in operation, maintaining the perfect living conditions.
A Daikin Altherma air to air heat pump is suitable for most domestic projects – new build or retrofit. But it is mainly used as an addition to existing heating systems for extension projects or loft and garage conversions.
An air to air heat pump is essentially air conditioning without any exchange of the air in the building. It can be used to heat or cool an area.
It consists of an indoor and an outdoor unit that moves heat energy from outside to inside via a refrigeration process. It takes heat energy from the outside air and uses that energy for heating the air inside the house. Like a fridge, which cools the inside of the fridge and the back of the fridge gets warm, the air to air heat pump tries to cool the outside world and thus heats the inside space.
As the air to air heat pump gains its heat energy from the outside air it only uses electricity to run the process and not to produce heat. This means for every one unit of electricity it consumes to run the process, it will produce three to four units of heat.
No, as the air to air heat pump absorbs the air from the room it is directly heating the air and blowing it back into the room, it heats the air quickly. It is not relying on heat transfer by radiation, convection or conduction from a surface to the air unlike radiators.
This is not possible, it just heats or cools air.
An air to air heat pump would be used where there is no water heating requirement and generally if only required to heat a few rooms as opposed to heating every room in a house. They are particularly suited to offices and shops where there is no water heating requirement. They can also be used as a low-cost alternative to putting in a wet heating system to an extension space or a converted space.
