What is A Domestic Heat Pump?

A heat pump captures heat from outside and moves it into your home. It uses electricity to do this. However, the quantity of heat delivered into your home is greater than the quantity of electricity used to power the system.

The air source heat pump is installed on your property to utilise the ground source pumps paired together; the pipes below ground can extract a low-temperature natural heat that is then brought to the air source heat pumps and warmed in a way that can heat your property.

This heating system then allows you to distribute the heating to wherever it is needed; whether it is for radiators, hot water tanks or your underfloor heating, it provides renewable energy for your home.

Get in touch with our team for full details on what heat pump systems are available in Ilford and London.

How Do Heat Pumps work?

As a heat pump captures heat already in the environment, the system emits no carbon dioxide emissions. Making it a renewable energy source.


Air Source Heat Pump (Air-to-water Pumps)

Air-to-water heat pumps take heat from the outside air and feed it into your wet central heating system; with a correctly positioned air source heat pump, you will feel the heat and watch your energy bills reduce!

They are most suitable for larger radiators or water underfloor heating because their heat is colder than a conventional gas or oil boiler. The air source heat pumps produce much heat but at a lower temperature.

They need a large surface area to release the heat most effectively. It is more straightforward to incorporate larger radiators or under-floor heating for a heat pump while you're extending your home or in a new-build property. It can also cost less than retrofitting underfloor heating later on.

Air-to-water heat pumps qualify for the Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) - which will provide upfront capital grants to support the installation of heat pumps and will be open to properties in England and Wales.

Frequently Asked Questions About Air Source Heat Pumps


Air-to-water heat pumps are suitable for many homes and are the most common type of domestic heat pump, with tens of thousands of installations across the UK. However, you should consider a few things before deciding whether a heat pump is right for you.

You'll need a place outside your home where a unit can be fitted to a wall or placed on the ground. It must have some space around it to allow good airflow.

There are two types of air-to-water heat pumps: monobloc and split systems. A monobloc system has all the components in a single outdoor unit, with pipes carrying water to the central heating system and a hot water cylinder inside your home. A split system separates the components between indoor and outdoor units. Whether a monobloc or split system is right depends on your budget and available space.

Monobloc systems are cheaper and quicker to install and don't take up as much space in your home, although they are generally slightly less efficient than split systems. The efficiency gain from split systems comes from some heat transfer occurring inside the building where it is warmer than outside.

If you are not limited by space inside your home, installing a split system may be worth the extra cost. Your installer should be able to talk you through your options and help you choose the design that works best for you.

The external unit for a heat pump is identical for both monobloc and split heat pumps. Noise is created by large fans moving air across the heat exchanger.

Unless the heat pump is working very hard (i.e. in cold weather or producing high-temperature water), you can expect the noise to be a similar volume to a fridge if you are standing within a couple of metres. You could easily hold a normal conversation next to it without raising your voice. As it gets colder outside, this noise will increase in volume while it's operating but should still allow you to hold a conversation easily, only raising your voice a little.

The inside unit for a split system only contains valves and pumps and makes very little noise.

Most homes in the UK use radiators or underfloor heating to circulate hot water – this is referred to as a 'wet' system. Air-to-water heat pumps need a wet system.

If you don't currently have a wet system, you will have to decide whether you'd like to install one. This is an excellent opportunity to ensure the wet system is optimised for a heat pump, resulting in lower running costs.

Don't want or can't install a wet heating system? An air-to-air heat pump could work for you.

A standard heat pump can't provide hot water on demand like a combi boiler, so you will need a way of storing hot water when you need it. The size of the hot water cylinder will depend on the amount of hot water your household typically uses. Still, the cylinder can usually be fitted inside any cupboard that measures around 80x80cm.
Running costs will depend on how your heat pump is designed and operated. Savings on your energy bill will also be affected by the system you are replacing.

Daikin Logo   The Quintessence Of A Heat Pump

Daikin Altherma 3 H HT is an investment in comfort and energy savings. This air-to-water heat pump delivers heating, cooling and instant hot water—and uses less energy.

This system is ideal for homeowners who want to upgrade their boiler or traditional heating system to a greener and more cost-effective solution.

One Solution - Multiple Combinations

The range includes one outdoor unit compatible with three award-winning indoor units, all of which can be customised to deliver heating, cooling and domestic hot water.

What Is Excellent Inside Should Look Great Outside…

Clean, minimal and uncomplicated is the best way to describe the Daikin Altherma 3 H HT outdoor unit. A black horizontal grille covers the entire front plate to hide the single fan and reduce its operational sound.

At the same time, the matte grey finish reflects the colour of the exterior wall to help the unit blend into different environments and landscapes.


Beat The Cold

The Daikin Altherma 3 H HT is a renewable heating solution that performs just as well in colder climates as in warm climates. Compared to other heating systems, this range uses outdoor air to deliver the correct heat and hot water capacity, even in temperatures as low as - 28°C.


Silence Is Comfort

When operating in Standard Sound Mode, the sound pressure level of the outdoor unit is 38 dBA (at 3 meters)—that’s somewhere between birds chirping and a quiet library. On Low Sound Mode, the sound pressure is reduced to half (35 dBA at 3 meters).

Choose The Indoor Unit To Run Your Central Heating System

Discover the three indoor units that are part of this range and the three different settings (Three features) you can choose from to tailor the range to meet your climate needs.

Heat Pump Indoor Units

1. Wall Mounted Model

A compact unit combines with a separate tank to deliver domestic hot water. This model offers an optional cooling function.

2. Integrated DHW stainless steel tank model

A compact unit with a footprint of 595x625mm. The unit connects to a 180 or 230L tank to meet domestic hot water demand and can operate in either a cooling or bizone settings.

3. Integrated ECH2O DHW tank model

The ECH2O unit has a thermal DHW tank of 300 or 500l that can connect to thermal solar panels. This model offers an optional cooling setting.


Three features

  • Heating only
  • The Heating Only function is standard in the Daikin product range and is available for all three indoor units. This setting provides space heating and domestic hot water.


  • Reversible
  • If you need comfort cooling in addition to heating and hot water, then the Reversible function is the best solution. This feature allows the system to reverse its operation to provide cooling instead of heating for all three indoor units. This setting requires an underfloor piping system or fan coil units.


  • Bizone
  • The integrated floor standing unit is the only indoor unit equipped with a Bizone setting. With Bizone, you can choose to manage and control the temperature of two separate zones in your home that use different emitters, like radiators or underfloor heating.


Exceptional Performance Comes From Within

The Daikin Altherma 3 H HT contains the latest European HVAC technologies developed for European climates. Discover the features that make this product stand out from the rest.

Crafted With Care

3. Brand-new compressor

Daikin Europe worked with the Daikin Technology and Innovation Centre in Japan to develop a special compressor that delivers 70°C water. This high-temperature heat pump is also the first to use R-32: a more energy-efficient refrigerant that releases fewer CO2 emissions.


4. Durable insulation

3-layer insulation and rubber pads between the bottom plate and vibration plate absorb and insulate the sounds made by the compressor while in operation.
