How does an air to water heat pump save you money?
An air to water heat pump works more efficiently than a traditional fossil-fuel boiler, generating 3kW of usable heat for every 1kW of electricity used. Talk about a good investment!
Why is an air to water heat pump environmentally friendly?
The Daikin Altherma air to water heat pump produces no direct CO2 emissions, so you personally contribute to a better environment. The pump does use electricity, but even without renewable electricity the CO2 emissions are still much lower than boilers that use fossil fuels.
Why does an air to water heat pump have a low installation cost?
An air to water heat pump takes heat from the air. No digging or excavation works are required. Both the outdoor and indoor units are compact. The external unit can be located easily outside any building, including flats. Without flames or fumes, there is no need for a chimney or constant ventilation in the room where the Daikin Altherma unit is installed.
Why is an air to water heat pump energy efficient?
An air to water heat pump uses a sustainable energy source. It extracts heat from the outside air which is free. The system consists of a closed circuit containing a refrigerant. A thermodynamic cycle is created through evaporation, condensation, compression and expansion. A heat pump “pumps” heat from a low to a higher temperature level. The heat raised is transferred to the water distribution system (under floor heating, low temperature radiators and/or fan coil units for low temperature heating systems and high temperature radiators for high temperature heating systems) in the home via a heat exchanger. A Daikin Altherma air to water heat pump delivers about 3kWh of usable heat for every kWh of electricity it uses. So this means that approximately 2/3 of your required home heating is free!
How is an air to water heat pump family-friendly?
An air to water heat pump works without oil, gas or other hazardous substances, thus reducing the risk associated with these. Moreover, you don’t need a gas connection or a fuel tank. No risk of intoxication, smell or pollution from leaking tanks.
Why does an air to water heat pump suit any project?
A Daikin Altherma air to water heat pump provides hot water and heating and is suitable for most domestic or (light) commercial projects – new build or retrofit. Daikin offers 2 different air to water heat pump types:
Low temperature – new build applications
High temperature – retrofit applications
What does the COP and the gain factor main?
COP (Coefficient of Performance) or gain factor, this number indicates the amount of usable heat the heat pump delivers for every kWh electricity the heat pump uses. This number is dependent on the interior and exterior temperature and is therefore only a snapshot indicator.
What is the SPF of a heat pump mean?
SPF (Seasonal Performance Factor) or performance factor of the heat pump system. The SPF takes into consideration both the energy consumption of the heat pump system as well as the consumption by peripheral equipment, such as pumps, over the entire heating season.
