A heat pump is an energy-saving technology that conveys heat to an indoor space without the need to generate heat from a heat resource. With the growing demand to move away from fossil fuels, Daikin believes that this could help governments meet goals for lower emissions while also ensuring comfort and sustainability for consumers across the globe. Here in the United States, heat pump technology is key to help meet environmental targets such as New York’s 80 x 50 goal (achieving 80% carbon reductions by 2050) and Berkeley, California’s ban on using fossil fuels in new construction.
A heat pump transfers heat in the air with refrigerants to control indoor temperature. In heating operation, the outdoor unit absorbs heat from outside air and transfers it to the indoor space. In cooling operation, the indoor unit absorbs heat from indoor air and rejects the heat to outdoor.
Heat pumps eliminate the need to produce heat using standard combustion methods, therefore reducing direct CO2 emissions associated to the cooling and heating system.
Daikin has more than 50 years of experience with heat pumps and supplies more than one million of them to homes, shops and offices each year. This success is not just a quirk of fate: Daikin has always been at the cutting edge of technology and our goal is to provide you with turn-key comfort. Only a market leader can provide you this level of service and quality control.
