  • Altherma is a highly flexible and energy efficient home heating system. It works by extracting heat from the outside air, raising this heat to a higher temperature and then distributing warmth around your home.
  • Altherma technology gives you 3 to 5 times the efficiency of traditional boiler systems. In other words,  for every £1 you put in, you get back 3 to 5 pounds worth of heat.
  • Altherma can provide all your heating and hot water all year round.
  • Altherma is compatible with radiators, fan coils and underfloor heating.
  • A heat pump system consists of an outdoor unit, and indoor hydrobox, and a domestic hot water tank.
  • VAT on domestic heat pump installations is only 5%
  • Daikin Altherma is accredited under the Microgeneration Certification Scheme, allowing homeowners to apply for grant of up to £900 under the Low Carbon Building Programme. **UPDATE** This is now pending Government approval for domestic systems – expected to be announced shortly.
  • Carbon emmisions are reduced by up to 50%, with energy savings of up to 30%.
