Brunn am Gebirge, April 2014_For anyone wanting to replace an old gas or LPG boiler, reduce their impact on the environment and save money on heating and hot water, the new Daikin Altherma Hybrid heat pump is the ideal choice.

Combining a highly efficient gas condensing combination boiler with a renewable air-to-water heat pump, the Daikin Altherma Hybrid heat pump keeps homes perfectly warm and provides hot water whenever it is needed. The system is up to 35% more efficient than a gas condensing boiler alone, reducing energy use and lowering bills.

The hybrid system fits in the same space as a standard gas boiler and can be connected to existing radiators and pipes, so it is fast and easy to install, causing minimal disruption. It can be set up to work as a combination boiler, providing instantaneous hot water or, for larger homes, can be linked with a hot water cylinder.

Over a year, the heat pump can provide up to 70% of the energy required for heating, either on its own or in combination with the condensing boiler in “hybrid mode”. Only at the coldest times of the year will the heat pump switch off and the gas boiler work alone. The system automatically selects the most efficient or cost-effective operation, based on the outside temperature and heating demand. It also takes current energy prices into consideration – they are simply entered into the controller and the system does the rest.

The compact and quiet outdoor unit, which draws heat energy from the outside air, can be placed discretely in the garden, mounted on a wall or on the roof, up to 20m from the indoor unit.

The Daikin Altherma Hybrid heat pump combines the best of two proven technologies and is one of the most affordable renewable energy systems available. It is the heat source of the future: an environmentally-friendly, easy to use and efficient way of keeping homes warm and comfortable, whatever the weather.
