Daikin Europe has announced the release of a new Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) control feature. Available as an option for the floor-standing model of the Daikin Altherma Heat Pump Convector (HPC), the new IAQ control feature allows fresh air to enter the room when its monitor detects excessive levels of CO2 inside. In this way, a Daikin Altherma HPC can provide precise, efficient room heating and cooling with high indoor air quality. The result is improved building occupant comfort and health as well as better energy efficiency.
The Daikin Altherma HPC floor-standing model now includes an optional IAQ control feature in which a small wall-mounted controller continually measures the CO2 in the room. When the CO2 level exceeds a pre-set threshold, the controller automatically opens a damper located in the heat pump convector. The open damper allows fresh air to enter the building from the outside. The incoming fresh air is then heated or cooled to the desired indoor temperature by the HPC. Integration of heating and cooling with IAQ helps deliver both optimal temperatures with improved indoor air quality.
