You can get advice on which type of heat pump is best suited to your home from a Daikin installer, staff at the manufacturer’s flagship store, or consult our residential solutions navigator.
Most heat pumps usually come with an indoor and an outdoor unit. Each unit produces sound when in operation, this sound is generally measured in dBA and these levels range from a scale of 0 dBA to 140 dBA.
When looking at sound levels you will also see specifications given for sound power level and sound pressure level.
Sound power level is the sound level measured directly at the source.
Sound pressure level is the sound level measured at a specified distance (usually 1.5 - 2 metres) from the source.
The indoor units of Daikin heat pumps generally produce a sound pressure level of about 30dBA, which is comparable to the sound of a person whispering.
Outdoor units, since they come in a bigger variety of sizes, range in sound pressure levels between 40dBA and 62 dBA, which are comparable to the sounds of birds a chirping and people having a conversation respectively.
The typical lifespan of a heat pump is generally between 15 and 20 years, though this depends on a number of factors. For example, maintenance. Although heat pumps are a low-maintenance solution, an annual check-up by your installer or service partner will help maximise its lifespan.
No! Furthermore, our air-to-air heat pumps (also known as air conditioners) can help reduce the symptoms of allergies. Daikin integrates multiple filters in all its air conditioning units: titanium deodorising filters, silver allergen filters and flash streamers remove dust and capture bacteria. With proper air conditioning maintenance, and as long as they are cleaned regularly, these filters will provide cleaner, healthier air for everyone to breathe.
What is the function of an air purifier?
An air purifier can remove pollutants, allergens, and other contaminants from the air. Using a combination of technologies such as electrostatic HEPA filters, activated carbon filters and ionisers, air purifiers help to capture and neutralise pollutants making the air you breathe considerably cleaner.
The 5 benefits of using an air purifier
There are many advantages of having an air purifier at home or in the office, including:
- Improving indoor air quality by removing pollutants such as dust, pollen, pet dander, mould spores and smoke from the air.
- Reducing allergies and asthma symptoms by removing allergens from the air.
- Reducing odours such as smoke, cooking odours and chemicals by using activated carbon filters and other purifying technologies.
- Improving sleep is one of the key benefits of an air purifier. It creates a cleaner and more comfortable sleeping environment by removing pollutants and allergens from the air.
- Creating a more comfortable and enjoyable living or working space by removing pollutants and allergens from the air.
Yes, heat pumps can connect to either old or new radiators.
If you already have radiators in your home, high-temperature heat pumps or hybrid heat pumps (if you’re replacing a gas boiler) can easily connect to them and use existing piping without the need to replace the radiators or carrying out additional works.
There are four main ways that an efficient ventilation system can reduce living and household costs. These are:
1) Energy savings: An HRV system (which is the most impactful way to save costs) helps with energy savings. It transfers heat from outgoing air into the fresh air in a way that keeps the temperature stable. This reduces the need for heating, saving energy costs.
2) Reduced heating and cooling loads: By exchanging outdoor air and removing stale indoor air, the ventilation system helps reduce the heating and cooling loads of an HVAC system. In turn, this helps prolong the life of HVAC equipment. This subsequently reduces maintenance costs.
3) Reduced allergies and asthma: The Duco Centralized HRV System significantly helps reduce the symptoms of allergies and asthma by removing harmful particles from the air.
4) Low maintenance cost: The Duco system has a low maintenance cost and is built from high-quality materials and advanced technology, making it durable and long-lasting.
