Hot Water Heat Pumps
A hot water heat pump operates on the same principle as a normal heat pump, but it provides hot water to your home instead of heating the air inside your home.
A heat pump water heating system replaces a standard electric hot water cylinder, and provides instant hot water at the perfect temperature every time. Daikin has led the way in NZ with their ALTHERMA R HW domestic hot water heat pump.
Huge energy savings can be expected from a hot water heat pump when compared with an electric hot water cylinder. For most of the year, a quality Daikin system only requires 25-33% of the electricity for the same amount of hot water usage.
Consider that for the average Kiwi household, hot water makes up 30% of their electricity usage. Doing the math with the much better efficiency of a Daikin heat pump water heater, you can save around 15% of your total electricity costs when compared with a standard electric hot water cylinder.
The reliability of an ALTHERMA Daikin hot water heat pump is ensured by an electrical backup heating element. This means instant hot water even on the frostiest of Bay of Plenty mornings.
You might read about heat pumps being noisy, but at 47 dbA the ALTHERMA system is quieter than an average fridge – and that’s at the outside unit, where most of the sound is created.
A Daikin system also comes standard with an easy-to-use integrated controller that gives you a range of functions including programmable timers and temperature control.
