Air Source Heat Pump energy is a solution that can provide heating, air conditioning and hot water. Can you imagine being able to control all of this with just one piece of equipment? In Malaga we have been carrying out aerothermal installations with Daikin Altherma for years.
What is Daikin Altherma?
Daikin Altherma is a comprehensive climate control system that provides heating in winter, cooling in summer and hot water all year round. Its main source of energy is the outside air and only 25% comes from electricity.
The principle is simple, to use the heat from the outside air to heat or cool the inside of the house. Even if it is hot or cold outside, the heat pump can work without any problems, in fact it can produce heat even if the thermometer reads down to -25º centigrade outside.
Like any heat pump system, it depends on three essential elements: an evaporator, a condenser and a refrigerant. These three elements are the basis of a complex system that is capable of providing the desired temperature to any room in the house or heating the water we need for bathing.

As we have mentioned the mechanics behind the aerothermal system is quite simple. However the technology is still being improved as we can see in the following video. This is the latest generation of Daikin Altherma:
Heat pump heating with Daikin Altherma
Until a few decades ago it was unthinkable that such a simple system could extract so much energy from the air. It is estimated that more than 70% of the energy required by state-of-the-art heat pumps comes from the air, i.e. it is free, unlimited and renewable.
As with any heating system, an initial investment is required. The difference is that their low electricity consumption and low maintenance allow the project to be highly profitable in the long run.
The Daikin Altherma system can be implemented both in new constructions and in renovations, taking advantage of the radiators and pipes. It can also be coupled with a modern floor heating system to provide the greatest comfort in the home.
Heat pump air conditioning
The heat pump is a great innovation in the world of air conditioning. It is true that for now it has a higher initial cost than conventional systems. However, if we compare it with other technologies in terms of savings and low environmental impact, its rivals pale.
Basically, it allows for the production of cold with very low electricity consumption. This possibility becomes very important when we have to air-condition a house on the Costa del Sol. Already in spring, but especially during the summer months it becomes indispensable to have air conditioning.
Running several air conditioners in one house can have a considerable impact on the electricity bill. In contrast, the latest generation of heat pumps allows the same level of comfort while spending much less.
Domestic hot water with Daikin Altherma
In Malaga it is very common to see solar thermal panels on the roofs of homes. We are lucky enough to be one of the regions with more hours of sunshine per year in all of Europe. Without a doubt, this is a great advantage that we should take profit of.
If you do not have this type of equipment, if you want to replace it or are looking for an alternative that is also ecological but more discreet, heat pumps are an excellent solution. Given the temperatures in Malaga in both autumn and winter you will have no problem. An aerothermic system such as Daikin Altherma can provide your home with hot water all year round.
