Together we can change the future of heating for your customers
The era of fossil fuels is coming to an end
The UK government has pledged that our nation will reach net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
It’s a massive challenge, and will demand changes within almost every aspect of our lives, so that we can achieve an ‘electric future’.
From switching to electric vehicles, quadrupling the UK’s supply of low carbon electricity, and banning gas heating in new houses by 2025. The energy, construction and heating industries have a huge role to play.
Higher standards of energy efficiency will be critical to delivering crucial energy savings and emissions reductions. A review of Part L of the Building Regulations is already underway, and is expected to introduce SAP10, increasing the standard for energy efficiency requirements for new homes in 2020. The Future Homes Standard will require new-build homes to be future-proofed with low carbon heating and world-leading levels of energy efficiency by 2025. And legislation on existing homes will follow only a few years behind.
All these policies will drive a rapid shift: away from fossil fuel-based heating systems, and towards heat pumps as the solution of choice for domestic heating.
What is creating the energy for change?
Low carbon future
We’re leading the change
Following the Kyoto and Paris conventions, Daikin fully endorses the new objective of the UK government: a Net Zero Carbon UK by 2050.
We already have the products and the knowledge to make this ambition a reality. But it will take considerable, collaborative effort from all of us - governments, installers, housing associations and homeowners - to achieve it.
The world is changing, and the market has to change with it. At Daikin, we’re leading the change. And together, we can meet the challenge.
A selection of our case studies
Renewable energy solves key heating issues in a Welsh valley cottage, when an oil fired heating system was replaced with a Daikin Altherma High Temperature air-to-water heat pump that’s largely powered by solar energy.
Kings Park Village
Some like it hot – especially when a heat pump cuts energy bills. Owners of a two-bedroom park home on Canvey Island, Essex, replaced an electric boiler with a Daikin air source heat pump, slashing their energy costs by more than 40% and saving around £65 a month. On top of that, they are getting around £600 a year from the government’s domestic Renewable Heat Incentive.
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 effi cient and economical Daikin Altherma air source heat pumps to provide warmth when necessary and ample hot water whatever the weather
Upgrading from an oil-fired boiler to a Daikin Altherma High Temperature heat pump split system gave a Yorkshire homeowner a more environment-friendly heating system and greater comfort. The heat pump solution for space heating and domestic hot water from Daikin eliminates the cost of oil – and any risk of supply difficulties or oil thefts – and opens the door to the government’s domestic Renewable Heat Incentive (dRHI).
Croakers Hatch, Southampton
Manor view is high-tech temple of heat pump technology. Leading South Coast plumber Kevin Watts recently put the finishing touches to Manor View, a 10,000 square foot dream house near Southampton – with a mixture of high and low temperature heat pumps plus air conditioning units from Daikin UK to ensure it stays warm in winter and cool in summer.
Hybrid system provides better environment for Dorset family. When Amy Swayne-Shaw’s old gas boiler became noisy and costly to run, she decided to look at alternative heating solutions. Instead of choosing a straight boiler replacement for her 73m2 three bedroom semi-detached house in Gillingham, Dorset, Amy decided on a renewable heating solution: the Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump system. The system, combining a high efficiency gas combi boiler and an air-to-water heat pump, keeps the house at a comfortable temperature and provides hot water for the family on demand.
