Brussels, 10th December 2020 – Daikin Europe today announces the release of an upgraded version of its air-to-water heat pump range powered by Bluevolution with R-32 refrigerant: the Daikin Altherma 3 R. Released in 2018, the Daikin Altherma 3 line set an international standard for heat pump performance. Now, the product includes remote control, voice control assistance and a redesigned outdoor unit casing, which are the result of Daikin's mission to always find new ways to improve features that are important to our consumers.
A new set of improvements
The Daikin Altherma 3 R features significant improvements which increase the installer and user experience of Daikin’s Altherma 3 line of heat pumps. First, the product can be controlled from anywhere with the Daikin Residential Controller application that includes the voice control assistance thanks to links with Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa. But Daikin also listened to installers and improved the outdoor unit casing, simplifying the installation and maintenance of the unit.
Daikin’s Altherma 3 line was initially released in 2018. The system set a new standard for heat pumps internationally as the first air-to-water heat pump featuring Bluevolution technology and R32 refrigerant. Thanks to a new set of improvements, the Daikin Altherma 3 R gets closer to customer needs.

This make the installer’s job easier than ever.”

Just like other new generation heat pumps from Daikin, Altherma 3 R heat pumps are equipped with R32 refrigerant. R32 refrigerant has paved the way for heat pumps with a reduced environmental impact and increased performance. Indeed, this refrigerant reduce the environmental impact of heat pumps by 75% and need 30% less charge compared to R410-A refrigerant.
