What’s a heat pump?
A heat pump is an energy saving system that conveys heat without the need to generate heat.
How does a heat pump work?
There is always heat in the air. When the amount of heat is large, the temperature is high. When the amount of heat is small, the temperature is low.
A heat pump controls temperature by transferring heat. A refrigerant circulates between the indoor and outdoor units of the system to complete that transfer process.
In cooling mode, heat pumps work by transferring the heat from a room or internal space to the outside air, thus cooling the inside area. In reverse, heat pumps can extract latent heat from the outside air and pump it inside to heat indoor spaces, even when the temperature outside is down to -20°C!
The benefits of heat pump technology
Because the heat is transferred and not generated, fewer electricity is needed. This provides energy savings. Heat pumps are more efficient than even the most efficient fossil-fuel based heating systems.
Using an integrated heat pump solution to both cool and heat a building can also mean a lower initial investment, as well as simpler operation and maintenance procedures.
Daikin heat pumps for your home
Daikin has applied its heat pump expertise to create the Daikin Altherma range of domestic heating solutions. Depending on the model and the conditions, a Daikin Altherma air to water heat pump delivers about 3kWh of usable heat for every Kwh of electricity it uses. This means that approximately 4/5 of the required heat is free: talk about a good investment!
Daikin heat pumps for your business activities
Daikin’s commercial heat pump products include Daikin multis, VRVs and chillers, which offer highly efficient heating as well as cooling. Within industrial settings, heat pumps also deliver unparalleled process efficiency to meet the most exacting industrial heating and cooling requirements.
