Efficient, eco-friendly heating for luxury Cornish beach homes
Nine luxury holiday homes on Cornwall’s Rame Peninsula are geared up for year-round comfort with efficient and economical Daikin Altherma air source heat pumps to provide warmth when necessary and ample hot water whatever the weather.
Newly built on the site of a hotel of the same name, The Bay at Cawsand provides a mix of two, three and four bedroom apartments and townhouses. The multi-million-pound development also includes secure undercover parking for 15 cars and a 60 seat restaurant.
Daikin Altherma LT systems
Offering reliable operation with outside temperatures as low as -25oC, these systems quietly and efficiently extract energy from the atmosphere and convert it into useable heat. For each kilowatt of electricity used, a system produces 3-4kW of heat. Over a year, this is up to 300% efficiency.

“With technical help available from Daikin if we needed it, this was a straightforward, trouble-free installation.
The only issue was a positioning change for the apartments’ outdoor units to meet planning requirements.”
Parsonage Developments project manager Ian Page says early reports from the first five sold apartments indicate satisfaction with the installation and performance of the Daikin Altherma systems.
Each of the homes has an 8kW Daikin Altherma low temperature heat pump capable of producing water at temperatures up to 55oC for underfloor heating systems, radiators (upper floors) and domestic hot water supplies.
Complementing the energy efficiency built into the new homes, the Daikin Altherma LT systems are designed to minimise heating costs – as well as carbon emissions and environmental impact.
