More information

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.

A Daikin heat pump installer will manage everything related to ordering, delivery and installation of your heat pump.

The simplest answer is, it depends. Installing a heat pump is more than just the placement of an indoor and an outdoor unit, therefore there is no definite timeframe when it comes to the amount of time it will take to install a heat pump as it will depend on a number of different factors such as:

  • Type of home: The first thing that will be taken into account is the type of home a heat pump will be installed in. Is it a new-build or an existing home? With new-build homes, the planning needs to be taken into account with all other building currently taking place. With existing homes, things such as whether existing emitters will be used or will be replaced with new ones will play a part in the time needed.
  • Type of heat pump: Since there is a variety of different heat pumps, each one also has its own time requirement for the installation.
  • Additional works: Whether you are installing a heat pump in an existing or new-build home, there may be additional works that need to take place in order to ensure that you’re getting the most out of your new system. This could include the installation or replacement of emitters (such as radiators), optimising your insulation etc.

The price of installing a heat pump varies depending on the type of heat pump you choose and the country you live in.

Other factors that can affect the price are renovation or additional building works (such as insulation) that need to carried out, plus your installer. Different installers will have different prices according to their expertise and experience.

Across Europe, different countries have different regulations and incentives on national and regional level to support the purchase and installation of a heat pump.

As each will have their own schemes and eligibility criteria, we advice you to consult your chosen Daikin installer, or your government's website, for more information.

Heat pumps are not very demanding. We advise scheduling an annual maintenance appointment with your installer or service provider to make sure your pump keeps working as efficiently as possible. A typical service would include a number of standard checks, as well as a thorough cleaning of the unit and filters.
