Ductless Heat Pumps by Daikin
The following is a guest post from the local heating and plumbing experts Torry and Sons. In hopes of adding depth and variety to the knowledge shared on this blog, I thought it would beneficial to have the perspectives of various experts from various specializations. In this post they describe a line of what I have mostly seen referred to around here as “ductless heat pumps” which is also something that I became quite familiar with during my time living in Japan. But these each of these ones have a twist…
Daikin Altherma is an innovative Air to Water heat pump system that heats and cools spaces and even produces domestic hot water. This system has the unique ability to use a renewable energy source – the outside air! Therefore no gas or oil consumption which will reduce CO2 emissions.
The Coefficient of Performance (COP) is the ratio of heat produced to energy consumed. Depending on the model and 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 is a great ratio from 3:1 to 5:1! And because these systems deliver a considerable savings in energy, they also deliver significant savings on your heating bill.
A Daikin Altherma heat pump “pumps” heat from a low to a high temperature level. The heat raised is transferred to the water distribution system, which can be: In-Floor heating, low temperature radiators or fan coil units with ductwork in the home. Fan coil units with ductwork enable us to use the Altherma for cooling as well as heating. This allows for very quiet operation of this heating system.
Daikin Altherma Heat Pump systems offer complete flexibility for new construction and deep energy refurbishment projects.
Daikin Mini-Split Heat Pumps
Daikin also offers an Air to Air Mini-Split option. This is a Heat Pump for any home or office areas that requires heating and cooling – it can be zoned and it operates without ducting. One outdoor unit can operate up to 4 indoor units providing zoning comfort in a streamlined, wall-mounted design that compliments any interior.
The Multi-Room system is designed to run quietly, indoors and out. Plus, unlike conventional air conditioners that stop and start, the system uses advanced inverter technology, which reaches the desired temperature faster and maintains it without great fluctuations. By running at energy-conserving speeds, this unique technology enables
Daikin systems to achieve extremely high energy efficiencies.
The Daikin Mini-Split System offers very efficient and economical options to heat and cool almost any retrofit project.
