DECC Case Studies
The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) has used two Daikin Altherma air source heat pump installations as examples of the energy and cost saving potential of the renewable heating technology, which is included as part of the domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI)
The first example explains the installation of the Daikin system in the home of Simon Malik, a management consultant from West Sussex. Simon installed a 16kw High Temperature heat pump in his farmhouse conversion, which sits off the main gas grid. As a result, he has reduced his energy bills by around £800 per year when compared to the cost of an oil-fired system.
The second case study details how Coastline Housing, a housing association based in Cornwall installed a series of Daikin Altherma air source heat pumps in its housing stock in the South West and goes on to explain the savings that can be made by applying for the dRHI scheme.
