What are Daikin Heat Pumps?

Daikin is a world-renowned manufacturer of heat pumps, air conditioners and HVAC systems. Their heat pumps are designed to provide reliable heating and cooling, exceptional performance, and energy savings that you can count on. 

Types of Daikin Heat Pumps:

Daikin manufactures several different types of heat pumps, including VRV, air-to-air, geothermal, hybrid, and water-source heat pumps. Here are some of our top picks:

Air-to-air heat pumps are the most common type of heat pump and work by extracting heat from the outside air and transferring it inside your home or business. They can be used for both heating and cooling and are ideal for homes and businesses with limited space or budget. This can include both ducted, and ductless systems.

Top ductless air-to-air systems

The best Daikin ductless systems would be the LV Series, Aurora Series, and Emura:

Top VRF/VRV heat pumps:

VRF/VRV heat pumps are a type of air-source heat pump that use a variable refrigerant flow to provide precise temperature control and energy efficiency to a building with multiple zones. Daikin’s VRV (Variable Refrigerant Volume) system is a popular type of VRF system that uses advanced inverter technology, offers individual temperature control in each zone, operates quietly, is customizable, and easy to maintain. These systems are ideal for large buildings with multiple zones and high demand for energy-efficient heating and cooling.

  • Daikin VRV IV: This is Daikin’s flagship VRV system, which offers up to 64 indoor units connected to a single outdoor unit. It features a wide range of indoor unit options, advanced inverter technology, and intelligent controls for optimal energy efficiency and customizable comfort.


Geothermal heat pumps

Geothermal heat pumps, also known as ground-source heat pumps, are a more complex system that extract heat from the ground and transfer it into your home or business. They are more expensive to install but can provide greater energy savings in the long run. 

One of Daikin’s most popular geothermal units is The Daikin Altherma 3 GEO:

  • Daikin Altherma 3 GEO: This is a geothermal heat pump system designed for heating, cooling, and hot water production. It extracts heat from the ground and transfers it to the indoor space, providing high efficiency and low energy consumption.

Hybrid Heat Pumps

Hybrid heat pumps combine the efficiency of an air-source heat pump with the reliability of a gas furnace. These systems automatically switch between gas and electric heating depending on the outdoor temperature, optimizing efficiency and comfort.

The leading hybrid heat pump offered by Daikin is the Atherma model:


  • Daikin Altherma Hybrid Heat Pump: The Altherma Hybrid is a residential heat pump that combines the efficiency of an air-to-water heat pump with a gas boiler. This allows the system to switch between electric and gas heating modes depending on the outdoor temperature, optimizing efficiency and comfort. It features a compact design, easy installation, and advanced controls for maximum energy savings.
