Air to Water Altherma

Sustainable home heating, domestic hot water production that can even cool spaces.

Daikin Altherma, the home heating solution that connects to underfloor heating, low temperature radiators and fan coil units. Daikin has more than 50 years of experience in the production of air source heat pump systems, manufacturing over a million units a year for residential & commercial applications. Our product innovations provide you with high energy efficiency solutions minimizing the impact on the environment and running costs.

They use renewable energy sources (such as outside air)

Daikin Altherma is an innovative system that heats, produces domestic hot water and can even cool spaces. Daikin Altherma offers maximum comfort the whole year through. These heat pumps are also an interesting alternative for classic gas or fuel oil heating as they offer unique benefits:

All-in-one, all year round heating, cooling and domestic hot water supply solution

  Split Type Monobloc Type
Daikin offers the choice between a Daikin Altherma system with an outdoor unit and indoor unit (Split Type), or a Daikin Altherma Monobloc Type, in which the hydrobox components are located within the outdoor unit.
Heat pump type Outdoor (compressor) unit + indoor (hydronic parts) unit Outdoor unit only (compressor and hydronic parts combined)
R-410A refrigerant piping Between outdoor unit and indoor unit Inside outdoor unit
H2O piping Between indoor unit and indoor heating appliances Between outdoor unit and heating terminal units
Installer's advantages

No extra insulation of H2O piping required to protect from freezing

 

Only H2O piping needed to install the system

Solar collector (Flat plate collector) (Field Supply)

  1. Hydrobox
  2. Domestic Hot Water Tank
  3. Solar kit
  4. Solar pump station (Field Supply)

Note: The solar kit can also be used with the Monobloc version of Daikin Altherma

Solar Thermal Boiler: Averaged over an entire year, the sun delivers half of the energy we need to bring our domestic water up to the desired temperature for free. Your customer can use this solar energy by connecting a solar boiler to the Daikin Altherma system. A solar boiler is a thermal solar-energy system, whereby solar rays are transformed into heat. The heat is then stored in a water supply tank.

Solar kit: The solar kit provides the transfer of solar heat to the Daikin Altherma hot water tank via an external heat exchanger. In contrast to tanks with two heat exchangers, this system allows the entire content of the tank to be efficiently heated with solar heat and, if necessary, with heat pump energy.

Daikin Altherma solar boiler assembly

  • Solar collector (to be supplied by the installer)
  • Plumbing network and solar pump station (to be
  • supplied by the installer)
  • Supply tank: standard Daikin Altherma domestic hot
  • water tank
  • Solar kit
  • Re-heater (Daikin Altherma heat pump unit, which also provides the home with heating)

The large LCD screen on the room thermostat indicates all. The Room Thermostat the necessary information regarding the setting of the Daikin Altherma system in a blink of an eye. The user can also easily navigate between the different menus whose most common functions and modes include:

  • Setting the temperature of the room based on measurements from the built-in sensor
  • Cooling and heating mode
  • Off function (with integrated frost protection function)
  • Vacation function mode
  • Comfort and reduced function modes
  • Time (day and month)
  • Programmable weekly timer with 2 standard and 5
  • pre-set programs
  • Keylock function
  • Setting limits. The installer can change the upper and
  • lower limits

Comfort and reduced function modes

  • Time (day and month)
  • Programmable weekly timer with 2 standard and 5
  • pre-set programs
  • Keylock function
  • Setting limits. The installer can change the upper and
  • lower limits

The system consists of 4 components which together provide the ideal comfort and water temperature.

1A / Outdoor Unit: an efficient use of energy from the air

Daikin Altherma uses a natural source of energy. The outdoor unit extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it inside through

refrigerant piping to supply heating. The compact outdoor unit is easily installed and, as no drilling or excavation work is required, it can also be installed in condos and apartments.

1B / Hydrobox: the Heart of the Daikin Altherma System

The hydrobox heats the water that circulates through low temperature radiators, floor heating systems or fan coil units and also provides domestic hot water. If you opt for the combination of heating and cooling, then the hydrobox can also reverse the cycle to provide lower water temperatures and thus cooling to the home.

2 / Domestic Hot Water Tank: for low energy consumption

As for your domestic hot water, Daikin Altherma is just as clever. The unique lay-out and special placement of the system components maximize energy efficiency. The water inside the storage tank is primarily warmed up by thermal energy from the outside air, thanks to a heat exchanger connected to the heat pump. However, an additional electrical heating element in the domestic water tank can take care of extra heat required in the shower, tub or sink. At necessary intervals the water is automatically heated to 158°F or more to prevent the risk of bacteria growth. With Daikin Altherma, delightfully warm and perfectly safe water can be enjoyed at all times. Depending on the daily consumption of hot water, Daikin Altherma domestic hot water tanks are available in two different sizes.

4 / Solar kit

The solar kit provides the transfer of solar heat to the Daikin Altherma hot water tank via an external heat exchanger. In contrast to tanks with two heat exchangers, this system allows

the entire content of the tank to be efficiently heated with solar heat and, if necessary, with heat pump energy.


Energy Efficiency

Renovating a heating system and wanting to reduce energy costs? Interested in a heating solution with lower energy costs? Heat pumps are currently the most efficient indoor comfort system on the market: a cutting-edge technology with clear benefits for you and the environment. Depending on the model and the conditions, a Daikin Altherma air-to-water heat pump delivers between 3 and 5 kWh of usable heat for every 1 kWh of electricity it uses. That's a great ratio from 3:1 - 5:1!

Daikin Heat Pump experience

Daikin has more than 50 years of experience with heat pumps, and supplies more than one million of them to homes, shops and offices each year. This success is not just a quirk of fate: Daikin has always been at the cutting edge of technology and its goal is to provide you with turn-key comfort. Only a market leader can guarantee you this level of service and quality control!

High efficiency means low energy cost

Heating system efficiency is measured using the Coefficient of Performance (COP), which is the ratio of heat produced to energy consumed

  • Customers today are, more than ever, conscious of the cost of heating.
  • There is not only the increasing cost of fuel oil and natural gas, but also the limited supply of fossil fuels and the problem of CO2 emissions.
  • Energy efficient heating solutions are gaining in popularity.
  • Daikin Altherma debuted in Europe in 2006 and since then has demonstrated significant economical advantages over traditional systems as highlighted on the following.

The Daikin Altherma technology delivers excellent efficiency due to the heat pump characteristics (using renewable energy from the outside air) and the part load benefits of the inverter compressor technology, using only the electrical energy needed to satisfy the requirements of the home. Currently there is no appropriate U.S.

recognized testing and rating standard for technology that is of Air to Water design and can solve Hydronic Heating, Domestic Hot Water and Cooling requirements in a single packaged solution.

As such, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has issued Daikin with an Interim Waiver.
