Centralized heat recovery integrated in Daikin’s residential heating and cooling offer
Daikin Europe N.V. is leader in the air conditioning, heating, ventilation and refrigeration business in the EMEA region. The agreement allows Daikin to include DUCO’s Centralized Heat Recovery Ventilation units in its own product line-up for the residential segment. This range extension consists of the DucoBox Energy Premium, made for the high-end segment, and the DucoBox Energy Comfort, specifically designed for larger building projects.
DUCO’s CHR Ventilation is one of the most energy efficient residential ventilation technologies on the market. It recuperates up to 90% of the heat of the air that is extracted. The units are equally high performing on indoor air quality management. Equipped with sensors, they control the level of CO2 and humidity in a room in an automated way. Fresh air supply happens only when needed and in the most energy efficient way.
Daikin provides total solution for residential applications
As a specialist in managing the air people live in, Daikin sees it as its mission to provide innovative solutions for high quality indoor air. For the residential segment, it manufactures and sells air conditioning units, air-to-water heat pumps and air purifiers. Daikin’s extended network of professional customers across Europe will now be able to include DUCO’s CHRV range to that product line up, together with a complete range of accessories for ducting. This allows them to provide a one-stop-shop solution in residential projects and installations.
“This collaboration is the perfect occasion for Daikin to further develop its residential business pillar. The ventilation sector is expected to grow strongly in the coming years. Pushed by the COVID-19 pandemic, people are more aware of the need for good ventilation for a healthy indoor environment. When they build or renovate their home, ventilation has become top of mind next to other basics such as heating and cooling.” says Anthony Dimou, General Manager of Sales in Daikin Europe. “It is important for us to offer customers complete solutions. By combining our heat pumps with DUCO ventilation solutions that use heat recovery, we can offer to our end-customers an energy efficient eco-system for optimal heating, heat recovery and ventilation“.
DUCO CEO Luc Renson also speaks of a great partnership: "As a multinational company, active across the whole of Europe, Daikin Europe is an ideal partner for us to market our ventilation systems on a larger scale; thereby strengthening our European ambitions. We are delighted that Daikin has chosen DUCO products to further expand their residential offering. Both companies share the same “quality-DNA” and we look forward to offering our ground-breaking demand-driven ventilation solutions to Daikin customers across Europe," says Luc Renson, CEO of DUCO.
