DAIKIN UK - Through Its Partnership With EDF Energy, Daikin UK Showcases Domestic Heat Pump To HRH The Prince Of Wales

Through its partnership with EDF Energy, Daikin was given the opportunity to explain the energy and carbon saving potential of its Daikin Altherma heat pumps to HRH the Prince of Wales, when he visited the Princes Foundation House at the Ideal Home Show at Earl’s Court on 17th March. The house for which EDF was one of the sponsors, showcased a wide range eco-friendly features including a low carbon heating system.

EDF Energy and Daikin UK joined forces to provide “The Prince’s House” exhibit at the show with an energy efficient Daikin Altherma monobloc heat pump and explained the principles behind the technology to the Prince when he toured the house at the internationally famous show.

The two companies were amongst those involved in providing technology to 'The Prince's House', Prince Charles’ example of a low carbon home made from natural and recycled materials which his Foundation for the Built Environment claims is just as low carbon as some of its high tech alternatives.

The house is built on eco friendly principles and is made from natural materials like wool, hemp, wood and lime so it's non-toxic and kinder to the environment. The shell of the house is built using the FutureForm Building System and is designed to reduce waste during construction and to provide substantial energy savings in use.

Iain Bevan, National Sales Manager, Heating and Renewables for Daikin UK said: “Daikin UK has been working closely with EDF Energy to promote renewable energy heating and hot water systems and through our relationship with them we were proud to be involved in such a prestigious project. It is exciting to see an organisation such as the Prince's Foundation recognising the part technologies like ours can play in delivering practical, stylish and sustainable homes.”

Chief Executive of the Prince's Foundation, Hank Dittmar said: "The Prince's Foundation thinks that saving energy is an important part of doing your bit for the planet; a great way to do this is to heat your home and hot water by an air-to-water heat pump, a lower carbon alternative to a traditional heating system. An example of this can be seen in The Prince's House."

The Daikin Altherma monobloc air-to-water heat pump is a Microgeneration Scheme Accredited domestic heating and hot water system that makes a significant contribution to the house’s energy saving potential. By providing energy efficient and low carbon heat for homes, this “plug and go” solution, is ideal for properties where space is at a premium.

Compact in size, it is easy to install and contains all the main hydraulic components included within the one outdoor unit. A compact control box is also installed indoors, as well as a back up heater that will activate under extreme weather conditions.

Available in both heating only and heating/cooling versions, the system can be used in combination with underfloor heating, low temperature radiators or Daikin heat pump convector units. At the heart of the outdoor unit is Daikin inverter-driven compressor, which reduces start/stop cycles, eliminates the need for a buffer tank, has a low starting current and offers high full and partial load performances.
