Why Air Source Heat Pumps?

Extracting latent heat from the air

Daikin’s air source heat pumps represent a major step forward in energy efficient climate control, because they utilise free heat from the environment, rather than generating it solely from traditional fuel sources such as gas, oil or LPG.

Reducing cost and CO2 emissions

Air source heat pumps from Daikin UK have many environmental advantages thanks to their remarkable efficiency:

  • Recognised as a renewable heat technology
  • Use less energy than traditional heating methods
  • Reduce carbon emissions
  • Eligible for the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
  • Eligible for the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (domestic RHI)
  • Eligible for Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA)

Cost efficient operation

Because they consume much less electricity than the heat they generate, heat pumps have significantly lower running costs than traditional energy sources.

Their status as a renewable energy technology also renders them eligible for many tax benefits and government grant schemes such as 5% VAT on equipment and installation fees and support from the Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive scheme (domestic RHI).

How air source heat pumps work

Air source heat pumps can extract latent heat from the outside air (even when the temperature outside is down to -20°C) and pump it inside to heat indoor spaces, making use of outside air as an infinitely renewable energy resource.
