Central Heating & Hot Water System

Altherma by Daikin is a highly flexible, energy efficient home heating system that extracts the heat from the outside air, raises this heat to a higher temperature and then distributes warmth around the home through under floor heating. At the heart of the system lies an air to water heat pump.
Because of the advanced technology, approximately three quarters of the heat generated by the Altherma system is absolutely free of charge!

Heat pumps work in much the same way as the common refrigerator, a technology already embedded in every household, but in reverse.

Heat pump efficiencies can be measured by the fact that extracting heat from renewable sources requires just 1kW of electrical input in order to generate 3kW to 5kW of heating output. Heat pump systems therefore, are 3 to 5 times more efficient than fossil fuel boilers and are more than capable of warming a house completely, even during the lowest winter temperatures.
