Hybrid Heat Pumps
The Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump is a unique combination of a high efficiency gas combi boiler and renewable air-to-water heat pump. These can be run in combination or in isolation, to maximise energy-efficiency and minimise running costs. The system comprises of a single combined indoor unit, plus an outdoor heat pump unit. The indoor unit’s compact size means it can usually be fitted easily into the same space as the boiler it is replacing.
The Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump is controlled by smart hybrid logic. This automatically selects the most cost-effective heating mode at any time of day or night, all year-round. It takes into account external temperatures and internal heat and hot water demand, as well as the relative cost of gas and electricity.
Home-owners and tenants can input their latest energy tariffs so that the smart hybrid logic control can identify the most economical operating mode. It maximises the use of the heat pump as long as this is more cost-efficient than using the gas boiler.
The Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump is a domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI) ready.
