Daikin Altherma Energy Efficient Air Source Heat Pumps Selected for a Scottish Young Persons Home. Three Daikin Altherma air to water split heat pump systems, specified by Helix Consulting, Dunfermline and installed by Enviroheat Ltd, Carnock, Fife, provide heating for a new special young persons centre in Croftmalloch, Whitburn, West Lothian.
The single storey building comprises young persons and staff bedrooms (one with wheelchair facilities), lounges, kitchen/ dining room, family room, office and a general common area plus toilets and bathrooms etc. The heat pumps connect to under floor heating provided to most rooms some 240m2 of the 270m2 building. The systems are designed with flow water at 42°C, supplied by two type 006 and one type 007 systems (6.8kW and 8.4kW nominal heating capacity respectively).
Although Daikin Altherma can also be used for the supply and temperature regulation of domestic hot water, in this particular installation it is dedicated solely to the heating circuit. Daikin Altherma is enjoying rapidly increasing use throughout the UK and its inherent energy efficiency, low CO2 emission levels, clean operation and low investment characteristics enabled the consultant to satisfy West Lothian Council that it represented a genuinely flexible and cost effective alternative to a traditional gas boiler, even more so since the cost of laying on gas to the site would result in yet further expense.
