﻿Innovation award for Altherma high-temperature heat pump
Daikin’s Altherma high-temperature air-source heat pump has won the ‘Heating, plumbing, ventilation and building services’ category of the 2010 Self-Build Product Innovation Awards. It was chosen by the judges as the most innovative building-services product to meet the demands of today’s consumer and constantly evolving Building Regulations. It offers a low-carbon, low-energy solution to supplying a home’s requirements for heating and hot water.
This high-temperature heat pump can supply water at up to 80°C, rather than the 50°C that is typical for air-to- water heat pumps, making it suitable for older houses that require higher flow temperatures for their heating system.
