If something characterizes Daikin, it's undoubtedly its continuous innovation. Its latest development is based on an aerothermal system that allows heating, cooling and hot water to be provided through the same appliance. The name of this new generation is Daikin Altherma 3, a system that offers high performance and energy efficiency, a wide range of operation and easy handling, in addition to being respectful with the environment. In today's article we explain everything you need to know about this system.
What is Daikin Altherma 3?
Daikin Altherma 3 is the new generation of the Daikin Altherma system, with which it is possible to obtain heating, cooling and a.c.s through a single system. This new standard consists of an outdoor unit (4, 6 or 8 kW) that can be combined with three types of indoor units:
- Hidrokit mural: indoor wall unit, so small and compact that it can be integrated between the kitchen furniture. To create a complete solution in addition, this model can be combined with a water tank.
- Hidrokit Integrated design: indoor floor unit with a 180 L or 230 L tank, available in white and silver gray. Despite being a floor model, it only occupies 60cm x 60cm. It offers an electric resistance of 3W, 6W or 9W depending on the chosen model and 2 outlet temperatures.
- Integrated ECH2O hidrokit: indoor floor unit with a polypropylene tank of 300 L or 500 L, connections for solar energy and integration in an inclusive network. It can be combined with other sources of heat.

One of the distinguishing attributes of the interior equipment is its elegant, discreet and modern design, in white and silver gray. In addition, its easy handling is another of its attractions.
What are its advantages?
The main advantages of the Altherma 3, besides the fact of having a three-in-one system, are the following:
With an operating coefficient of 5.2 in heating and 3.3 in sanitary hot water. That is, for each unit of energy consumed, Daikin Altherma 3 provides 5.2 and 3.3 units of heat, depending on its use.
HIGH ENERGY EFFICIENCY
With the highest efficiency rating according to ErP, of A +++.
The system provides heating and hot water at the desired temperature even in very cold climates down to -25ºC. The system is capable of providing a temperature of up to 65 ° C, which is ideal for heating by radiant floor and radiators.
RESPECT FOR THE ENVIROMENT
Thanks to the revolutionary Bluevolution technology, which combines the Swing Daikin compressor and the new R-32 refrigerant gas, the system reduces the global warming potential by 30%.
This system offers the option of remote control through the smartphone via app to adjust the temperature and different options of heating and a.c.s in the home. In addition, its front panel works through the system "Daikin Eye", indicating by colors (blue or red) if the equipment is working properly or is out of service.
Daikin Altherma is designed intuitively considering both the installer and the user. An example of this are the different grips to facilitate transport to the simple installation method, using a configuration wizard.
