Daikin Europe has announced the release of the Altherma 3 R, an upgraded version of its air-to-water heat pump range powered by Bluevolution with R32 refrigerant.

The Altherma 3 line was initially released in 2018 as the first air-to-water heat pump featuring Bluevolution technology and R32 refrigerant. The updated version includes remote control, voice control assistance and a redesigned outdoor unit casing.

Patrick Crombez, General Manager Daikin Europe Heating and Renewables, said: “Our Daikin development team is continuously trying to find ways to improve our existing heat pumps with features that are important to our end users. Connectivity is one of those features, as well as environmental friendliness. Our upgraded heat pumps, such as the Daikin Altherma 3 R, are also easier to install and maintain. This make the installer’s job easier than ever.”

3 different indoor units

  • Altherma 3 R F, the floor standing unit with integrated domestic hot water tank, is the ideal system to deliver heating, domestic hot water and cooling. This “all-in” model reduces the installation footprint and height. 
  • Altherma 3 R ECH2O aims to maximise renewable energy sources to provide the ultimate comfort in heating, domestic hot water and cooling. With its solar connection and its ECH2O tank integrated, this heat pump uses more renewable energy while achieving the highest standards for water sanitation. 
  • Altherma 3 R W is a wall mounted unit which offers a high flexibility of installation and hot water connection for small spaces. It can also be combined with a thermal store.
