Daikin has revealed a new all-in-one heat pump system, the Altherma 3 Monobloc, which the company says is its smallest unit yet.

The Altherma 3 Monobloc air-to-water heat pump combines Daikin’s efficient and sustainable heating technology into a compact and versatile solution for homes of all sizes. The new smaller system means homeowners no longer have to trade precious space in their homes for improved environmental sustainability, the company says.

Fitting seamlessly to the outside of a wide range of housing types and requiring no indoor unit, the Altherma 3 Monobloc is suitable for any property where space is at a premium. 

The new unit maximises space in the home, while also offering significant savings over traditional heating systems due to its high efficiency and low running costs. For example, the average UK household can save up to £378 on heating bills each year compared with a gas boiler, Daikin says.

The new outdoor unit is specifically designed to improve airflow, cutting down on unwanted noise. Its concealed high-performance single fan blade makes the unit much quieter than conventional double fan heat pumps at just 62dBA.

Homeowners can monitor energy consumption and control the performance of their Monobloc using the Daikin Residential Controller App, and through Google Assistant or Amazon Alexa.

Iain Bevan, Commercial Manager of Heating & Renewables at Daikin UK, said: “More and more homeowners are looking to make the switch to low-carbon heating technology but don’t want to compromise on space in their home.

“Our new system is the perfect small and powerful, yet quiet solution for homes of all sizes. As more people look to switch to an eco-heating option, the ability to understand these systems and talk to homeowners about the best solution for them is a necessity.

“We’re helping installers navigate the changes and capitalise on the opportunities our sector is experiencing, by offering free training to build your knowledge of our heat pump systems as part of our Sustainable Home Network.”
