New Addition to Daikin Altherma Low Temperature Range has Enhanced Performance and Stylish Integrated Design


Daikin Europe NV has introduced a new air to air heat pump system for heating and cooling residential premises and small offices. Designated Nexura FVXG, the system comes in three sizes with heating capacities from 4.5 to 8.1kW and cooling capacities from 3.0 to 5.6kW.

Daikin Europe N.V. has extended its range of low temperature air to water heat pumps with a stylish new indoor unit (hydrobox) and hot water cylinder. The new floor standing system benefits from reduced installation times plus improved domestic hot water (DHW) COPs and allows the cylinder to be mounted on top of the hydrobox. The result is a single box, sleek and attractive solution for heating and DHW production.

The new integrated design option comes in heating only or heating and cooling versions and is compatible with the existing Daikin Altherma range of low temperature split outdoor units. Capacities range from 6 kW to 16 kW. Dimensioning software makes it easy to select the best configuration for optimum performance.

Compact footprint, easy installation and maintenance

One of the most energy efficient heating solutions on the market today, the Daikin Altherma low temperature system can produce 3 to 5 kW of heat for every 1 kW of electricity used by extracting heat from the ambient outside air. It is capable of comfortably heating homes in outdoor temperatures down to -20°C and supports optional domestic hot water production and comfort cooling. The new floor standing units features a highly insulated integrated unvented stainless steel DHW cylinder. Key benefits of this system include the ability to produce domestic hot water at temperatures of 600 C, simplified and drastically reduced installation requirements due to its use of times pre assembled components and ‘plug and play’ couplings. Its small footprint makes it suitable for use in areas where space is at a premium, whilst its easy to remove panel simplifies maintenance and in the event of ceiling clearance limitations, enables the optional split installation of the indoor unit and DHW cylinder.

A programmable commissioning function for under floor heating gradually increases system water temperature in time blocks of up to 72 hours to allow for complete screed drying

Improved economy and performance

The Daikin Altherma low temperature floor standing unit also offers performance improvements, a larger DHW coil and better insulation, improving heat-up times by 33% and performance by 20%, resulting in a DHW COP of 2.0.

The DHW cylinder is available in 200 litre and 260 litre versions, a unique reheat function extending tank capacity and allowing a lower overall tank temperature without

compromising comfort. When additional hot water capacity is needed during the day, the heat pump can reheat the tank more efficiently to a lower temperature. In addition, a single electric heater serves as both DHW booster and back-up for room heating.
