Air Source Heat Pumps are the most popular product on the market at the moment and Energy Gain UK are excited about the release of the new Daikin Altherma 3 H HT heat pump. This heat pump is a game-changer for the retrofit market and for larger exclusive properties.
With Bluevolution technology the heat pump is designed to provide a maximum flow temperature of 70c, whilst maintaining efficiencies.
Daikin is the first company in the world to launch heat pumps equipped with R-32 gas. With a lower Global Warming Potential, the R-32 is equivalent in power to standard refrigerants but achieves higher efficiencies and lower C02 emissions, the perfect solution for attaining the new European C02 emission targets.
The new Daikin Altherma 3 H HT heat pump has a number of new design features including a large single fan and black exterior grill. More importantly, they are very quiet with a unique sound rating of 38 dBA from 3 metres – which is quieter than the chirp of a bird. The H HT is available in three sizes 11, 14 & 16kw and is cloud ready for remote monitoring for both engineers and the end user.
How it Works
This system uses pipes below the floor to circulate warm water producing a heat source capable of heating the air above it to any required temperature. The typical temperature through an underfloor system is 35 – 45C, whereas a radiator system is 60 – 70C.
The outdoor unit extracts up to 75% of its energy in the outside air to provide heating, cooling and hot water, while the rest is provided by electricity. The air- to-water heat pump relies on a compressor and a refrigerant to transfer the energy from the air to the water, and heat the water up and to deliver it into the house.
Air-to-water heat pumps are among the most economical heating solutions. By relying on air to answer heating, cooling and domestic hot water needs, the heat pump achieves the highest energy ratings.
Renewable heating is one of the strongest growing sectors in the heating market and will continue to be so as government policies and directives enforce the transition from traditional oil and gas systems to heat pumps.
As Energy Gain UK specialise in this sector we have experienced team of staff and a history of installations, including the UK’s first cascaded Air Source Heat installation for the Dovehaven Care home Group.
