Daikin heat pump system receives MCS accreditation

Daikin UK is continuing to work with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme by achieving accreditation for its Low Temperature Integrated Split System.

The newly accredited Daikin Altherma Low Temperature Split System – which has been designed to provide an all-in-one, renewable solution – is already proven to reduce carbon emissions from heating and hot water provision when compared with other traditional systems. In this solution, the floor standing indoor hydrobox and stainless steel unvented cylinder are integrated into one neat package.

Andrew Crown, commercial manager, heating and renewables at Daikin UK said: “We are delighted that the LT integrated system has been accredited by the MCS. At Daikin UK we firmly believe that MCS accreditation is not merely worthwhile but imperative to commercial success, especially given the introduction of the government’s Renewable Heat Incentive which requires products and installers to be MCS accredited.”

Capable of providing heating and hot water for homes, the Daikin Altherma air-to-water heat pump takes heat from the outside air and converts it into usable heat for the home – even when outside temperatures are as low as -20°C. It can work with radiators, underfloor heating or fan convectors, and can provide cooling in the hot summer months. The integrated design also includes an optional solar kit which fits inside the hydrobox to connect an indirect pressurised solar thermal system to create a fully renewable system.

Available in capacities of 6-16kW, the integrated system is ideal for high specification new build applications. The indoor unit has a highly insulated unvented stainless steel cylinder for high flow rates, low energy losses and excellent re-heat times. The design also allows for a simplified installation, significantly reducing installation time. There is a choice of two cylinders, 200 or 260 litres.
