    • Air to Water Heat PumpIntroduction
    • Air to Water Heat Pump
      Split System
      Solar Thermal
    • Introduce an electric hydronic system that heats and cools the space, and can supply domestic hot water.Eco-efficient air-to-water heat pump hydronic system.Introduced in Europe in 2005, a unique combination using existing technology.
    • Table of Contents
      • 1. Introduction to ATW Heat Pump
      • 2. System Layout and Applications
      • 3. Balance Point Strategies
      • 4. Programming for Energy Savings
    • Drivers to a Changing Heating Market
      The Heating Market is Changing
      Energy prices : ever rising prices of fossil fuels due to increasing demand and reduced availability
      Ecological concern : efforts to reduce emmissions of green house gases and energy consumption
      Changing legislations, incentives : to support the drive towards major changes in energy consumption habits for the purpose of achieving ecological targets in an effort to slow down, stop or even reverse climate change.
    • WithDAIKIN ALTHERMA product, DAIKIN has entered the true HEATING market
      <Initial U.S.Target market>
      In 2006 DAIKIN entered the EU-heating market using an air to water heatpump
      In 2009, Daikin AC will launch this technology in the U.S
      Hydronic Heat Common

      1.Savings on running costs by high COP
      compared with Gas/Oil boilers
      2. Friendly for the environment
      3.Differentiation with cooling function against boilers
      Product differention
      Water heating market
      Heat source market:
      DAIKIN original strategy:
      Savings on running costs
      30 to 50°C86 to 122°F
      Enter the LOW temperature heating market by development of an HFC-based H/P
      Mainly new houses
      -40% compared to fuel boilers-25% compared to gas boilers
      Low temp:
      Floor heating
      Environmently friendly
      60 % savings on CO2-emissions
      Capitalize on initial product scope to strengthen opportunity in wider heat pump market with HT solutions
      Easy installation
      50 to 80°C122 to 176°F
      Enter the HIGH temperature heating market by using a Cascade System (R-410A to R-134). Orignally a CO2-based H/P was going to be used. Issues with high operating pressures ruled this option out at this time.
      Mainly refurbishment
      High Temp.:
      • No need for chimney- No need for fuel storage tank- No need for connection to gas supply
    • Selection conditions
      Typical conditions for the heating LWT are:
      86 to 95°F (at design conditions) for floor heating
      86 to 113°F (at design conditions) for fan coil units and
      104 to 122°F (at design conditions) for low temperature radiators
      Typical conditions for cooling LWT are:
      41 to 71°F (at design conditions) for fan coil unit
    • Why an ATW Heat Pump
      “All-thermal” functions embedded: heating, domestic hot water, cooling = all year comfort
      “Alternative thermal” system, friendly for the environment, using renewable energy sources
      3 functions:
      Unique concept in the EU market
      Domestic hot water
      Main product functions
    • Benefits for the End-User
      Only one energy supply needed (single invoice)
      Comfortable heating system
      Compared to gas/oil
      No risk for gas or oil leaks, no risk for CO contamination
      Improved installation possibilities (no combustion ventilation, no combustion exhaust gas evacuation, no oil storage)
      Possibility of cooling
      Compared to direct electrical heating
      Efficiency 2 to 4 times higher
      More capacity available for same power input
      Compared to geothermal heat pumps
      No expensive drilling or excavation works, small installation footprint outdoors
    • ATW Heat Pump Overview
    • Daikin Altherma™ - THE 3 IN 1 GUARANTEE – FOR ABSOLUTE COMFORT
      Daikin Altherma™ is a unigue system that heats, produces domestic hot water and can even cool spaces. Altherma™ offers maximum year round comfort.
      The air/water heat pump is an interesting alternative for classic gas or fuel oil heating that offer unique benefits:
      • Uses renewable energy sources (extracts heat from outside air)
      • Delivers considerable savings in energy costs
      • Delivers a significant contribution in the fight against CO2 emissions
      • Provide heating, cooling and domestic hot water

      Leaving water from Heat pump
      Return water
    • Domestic hot water control strategy
      DHW priority setting can be adjusted
      Powerful DHW mode : both heat pump and booster heater are in operation for quick hot water preparation
      Booster heater control :
      Adjustable delay timer : allow heat pump to heat up the water as high as possible (118.4 -122°F) before operating the booster heater
      Booster heater priority : simultaneous operation of back-up heater and booster heater can be disabled, booster heater has priority
      Scheduled timer : booster heater operation can be controlled by scheduled timer
      Comfort settings :
      Max DHW running time : maximum continuous operation in DHW mode (to avoid cooldown of rooms)
      Anti-recycling time : minimum time between two successive DHW operations (to allow recovery of temperature in heated rooms)
      Thermal disinfection mode
      Heat up the tank daily / weekly to avoid bacteria infection (default setting 158°F)
    • Domestic hot water recovery times
      Static Recovery Times (47°F/8°C outdoor ambient)
    • ATW Heat Pump Technology
    • Heat generation by heat pumps
      No heat “generation”, only move heat from the outside to the inside.
    • Expansion valve
      Electric power
      Heat pump principle
    • Heat Pump Concept
      Capture heat from the outside air and transfer it to the inside of the building.
      48,000 BTU heat pump will use 27.97 amps @ full load
      ERLQ048/ EKHBX054
      Producing 50,700 BTU of heat @ 54ºF/12°C outdoor w/ 113° LWC
      ( 44.8 kBTU at 45ºF/7°C outdoors)
      ( ( 31.6 kBTU at 19ºF/-7°C outdoors) 65.8% of Rated Capacity
      Electric heat of 51,182 BTU or a 15kW heat strip
      @ 230 volts would consume 65 amps
      Electric Heat uses 2.33 times the power
      Which is more efficient,
      Creating the heat energy or just bring it inside???
      CO2 emissions - 0
      No heat “generation”, only move heat from the outside to the inside.

    • Other Inverter Benefits
      • Very low startup amperage
      • No locked rotor amps
      • No stress on windings or compressor frame
      • No “light flicker”
      • Lubrication of bearings increases before speed increases
      • System pressures increase gradually reducing noise and stress on piping
      • Quiet compressor startup
      • Idea for backup generator and photo voltaic solar applications
    • Inrush Current
      5 to 6 times RLA
      132 amps
      Rush Current
      22 amps
      0 amps
      When starting up, Inverter raises frequency smoothly, eliminating the rush current.

    • Balance Point Strategies
    • System Applications
      Ideal for New Construction
      Ideal for New Construction
      Best balance between investment cost and running cost, results in lowest Lifecycle Cost
      100% Heat pump coverage : selection of bigger capacity and higher investment cost heat pump
    • System Applications
      Ideal for Refurbishment/Upgrade
      Space Heating with an Auxiliary Boiler
      Space heating application by either the Daikin Altherma Hydrobox or by an Auxiliary boiler connected in the system.
      An auxiliary contact decides whether the Hydrobox or the boiler will operate.
      The auxiliary contact can be an outdoor temperature thermostat, an electricity tariff contact, a manually operated contact etc.
      Domestic Hot Water in such an application is always produced by the System Tank connected to the Hydrobox, including when the boiler is in operation for space heating.

    • Installation Requirements
      Required Oil Trap ERLQ036, 048, 054BAVJU
      Since there is a possibility of oil held inside the riser piping flowing back into the compressor when stopped and causing liquid compression phenomenon.
      Install trap at each difference in height of 32.8 ft is required.
      • Trap installation spacing.
