Following last weeks policy announcements by the new Government, Daikin discusses some important points with regards to the budget cuts, the new Energy Bill and the proposed Green Deal for households, which could have a significant impact on the industry.
The entire range of Daikin Altherma products has been awarded the Quiet Mark from the Noise Abatement Society (NAS). Daikin is the first heat-pump manufacturer to receive this recognition in the UK.
A key aim of the Noise Abatement Society is to help find effective solutions to noise nuisance, in order to improve and protect the aural landscape for the benefit of the public and the natural environment. The Society recognises the pioneering role that industry plays in investing and supporting quiet technologies.
The Noise Abatement Society receives complaint calls about noise levels at work, at home and in the community. Heating and air-conditioning equipment is repeatedly identified as one of the causes of noise nuisance. A common concern raised with heat pumps is the noise level of the unit.
The complete range of Daikin Altherma products is proven to operate at very low sound levels, which are comfortable for human hearing tolerance levels. The Quiet Mark is a testament to the low-noise operation of the units, offering extra peace of mind to the general public and to social housing providers, who have to ensure tenant satisfaction at all times.
The NAS Quiet Mark is the only mark of its kind to recognise the significance of quiet products to the general public. It champions companies and solutions that recognise 'quietness' as a benefit for customers and as a significant aspect of consumer engagement and enjoyment. The Mark is awarded to products that exemplify engineering excellence and provide solutions to solve noise problems affecting public health and amenities.
The Noise Abatement Society aims to raise awareness of, and find solutions to, noise pollution and pollutants related to solving noise issues, for example light disturbance and air pollution.
NAS operates the UK's only free advice national noise helpline. Its work helps to relieve the physical and mental distress and ill health caused by noise and related pollutants, which profoundly affect public health, productivity, the quality of life and wildlife.
