How does Daikin Altherma work? RTS Heating & Cooling Services Ltd

The Daikin Altherma is an air-to-water heat pump system, simply put, this means it absorbs heat energy from the ambient air and uses it to satisfy your home heating requirements. Heat pumps are becoming increasingly popular as a home heating solution as they answer many concerns relating to conventional heating systems, that is to say, they are more energy efficient and cost effective.

The Technical Details

The Daikin Altherma air-to-water heat pump only requires 1 kilowatt of electricity to pump 3 to 5 kilowatts of heat into your home (in other words, 66-80% of the heat energy produced by Altherma comes from the outside air and is free of charge).

Outdoor & Indoor Units

The Daikin Altherma system consists of an outdoor and an indoor unit. Between these units is a refrigerant which absorbs heat energy and releases it into the indoor unit. Within the indoor unit, another heat exchange occurs: the absorbed heat is transferred to the water in the system which is then distributed through the underfloor network in your home.
