Less energy, pleasant warmth in the home. Altherma heats up to 5 times more efficiently than a traditional heating system based on fossil fuels or electricity. By making use of the heat in the outside air, you use much less energy while still enjoying a stable and pleasant level of comfort. Also, maintenance requirements are minimal making your running cost low. Thanks to the inverter technology, your energy savings are even greater.
Minimal installation cost
Altherma takes heat form the air. No digging or excavation works are required. Both the outdoor and indoor units are compact. The external unit can be located easily outside any building, including flats. Without flames or fumes, there is no need for a chimney or constant ventilation in the room where the Altherma indoor unit is installed.
Altherma can be configured for use in both new and refurbishment applications, and connects to standard low temperature radiators, under floor heating or fan coil units. If you already have a heating system, there is no need to change it all.
Altherma satisfies your heating requirements but it can also supply your domestic hot water. It comes with a cooling option for hot summer days.
Altherma works without oil, gas or other hazardous substances – reducing potential risk that goes together. Moreover, you don’t need a gas connection or a fuel tank. No risk of intoxication, smell or pollution from leaking tanks
Altherma System Components
Outdoor Unit - An efficient use of energy from the air.Altherma uses a natural source of energy. The outdoor unit extracts heat from the outside air and raises its temperature to a level high enough to supply heating. This heat is then transferred to the indoor unit through cooling agent pipes (thus, the additional advantage is that the pipes can never freeze).
The compact outdoor unit is easily installed and, as no drilling or excavation work is required, it can also be installed in flats and apartments.
Indoor unit : Hydro box - The heart of the Altherma system.
The indoor unit heats the water that circulates through low temperature radiators, floor heating systems or fan coil units and also provides domestic hot water. If you opt for the combination of heating and cooling, then the indoor unit can also decrease the water temperature to distribute a refreshing coolness.
Domestic hot water tank - for low energy consumption.
As for your domestic hot water, Altherma is just as clever. The unique lay-out and special placement of the system components maximise energy efficiency. The water inside the storage tank is primarily warmed up by thermal energy from the outside air, thanks to a heat exchanger connected to the heat pump. However, an additional electrical heating element in the domestic water tank can take care of extra heat required in the shower, tub or sink. At necessary intervals the water is automatically heated to 70°C to prevent the risk of bacteria growth. With Altherma you can enjoy delightfully warm and perfectly safe water at all times. Depending on the daily consumption of hot water, Altherma domestic hot water tanks are available in three different sizes, with the largest one being the most efficient.
System controls and the user interface are contained within the hydro-box and feature a weekly timer that enables the indoor temperature to be controlled according to user requirements. The timer is programmable on an hourly or daily basis so that temperatures can be reduced at night or during holidays and increased prior to rising in the morning or returning home. User comfort according to personal preference is thus maintained at all times. Where control over individual room temperatures and comfort levels is needed a conventional room controller should be added.
Solar as optional extra
The Altherma system can be perfectly combined with solar collectors to produce hot water. The sun provides 30 to 70% of the energy required for our hot water needs. Altherma, your total solution, thinks of the future.
