Brussels, 1 July 2021 - Daikin Europe launches Daikin Altherma M HW, its second generation domestic hot water heat pump. With its ease of use and sleek design, Daikin Altherma M HW can be installed next to other household appliances. Not requiring fossil fuels, it relies on outside air abundantly available. Only 25% of the system’s energy demand comes from electricity, obtaining an A+ energy label. Very intuitive, Daikin Altherma M HW has 5 different operating modes to meet the widest range of needs.

New design for a perfect fit heat pump as green as it can be

Daikin Altherma M HW is the new brand heat pump water heater with storage tank to generate domestic hot water, suitable for small houses or apartments. Thanks to its compact and modern design and to its to a tank of 200 or 260L, Daikin Altherma M HW is ideal for homes where domestic hot water is needed for up to 3 to 4 persons. Moreover, the white design makes it discrete and fitting perfectly with other household appliances.

Daikin Altherma M HW is a renewable heating solution for domestic water that employs electricity, air and if needed solar energy without resorting to traditional fuels. Only 25% of the system’s energy demand comes from electricity, obtaining an A+ energy label on all models. Furthermore, all models offer energy use optimisation from photovoltaic solar and one dedicated model also integrates thermal solar control.

5 different operating modes to meet the widest range of needs

Daikin Altherma M HW’s user interface has a very simple and intuitive display with a programmable digital interface with touch keys. In addition to meet the widest range of needs, Daikin Altherma M HW has 5 different operating modes, from eco to boost mode. Each of these modes uses energy differently depending on the needs of its users. While eco mode uses exclusively renewable energy, boost mode combines renewable energy and an additional electricity input. With this mode, as well as with the full electric mode, the temperature can rise above 75 degrees Celsius.

With all its features, Daikin Altherma M HW can heat water for all types of needs. The 5 operating modes make this heat pump a consistent choice to answer the domestic hot water needs of every familyMoreover, features such as anti-legionella control, scheduled or off-peak operations and holiday mode make it the perfect heat pump if you don’t especially need or want to invest in space heating” concludes Patrick Crombez.
