How would you like to keep a little more money in your back pocket and be good to the environment at the same time? If that’s pricked your ears, you might just be interested in investing in a hybrid boiler system for your home.

Hybrid systems feature state-of-the-art technology that combines a super-efficient gas boiler with a renewable energy heat pump. It can be up to 35% more efficient than a normal gas boiler, saving you money on your home’s energy bills and minimising your overall emissions into the atmosphere too. What’s not to like?

What does a hybrid boiler consist of?

A hybrid boiler system is comprised of a combi boiler that is fitted indoors, along with a heat pump unit that is positioned outside. Most hybrid indoor boilers are space-saving and will comfortably fit inside the space taken up by your old boiler.

The Daikin Altherma hybrid heat pump is leading the way in hybrid boiler technology. Its advanced internal system can detect the most cost-efficient way to heat your home during all four seasons. Another great aspect about the Daikin Altherma is that it can be installed into older properties, as well as new builds and can be connected to already-installed radiators or Calor gas tanks.

What’s unique about this hybrid system over other boiler-heat pump combinations?

While other boiler-heat pumps operate in parallel, the Daikin Altherma works in series, allowing the flow of one source to feed through the return of the second source for a truly eco-friendly and cost-effective heat operation.

Supreme energy efficiency

It is said that for every kilowatt of electricity used by a hybrid heat pump, it will generate three to four times that amount of renewable heat from the outside air.
