Daikin leads the way to Seasonal Efficiency
Seasonal efficiency is a new way of measuring the true energy efficiency of heating and cooling devices, over the period of an entire year. This way, seasonal efficiency gives a more realistic and concrete indication of your energy bills resulting in reduction of your ecological footprint.
Inspires to innovate
As the seasonal efficiency measure puts energy efficiency in a new and more complex light, manufacturers have many new concrete challenges to live up to. It pushes them to design their products to be even more energy efficient resulting in a smaller ecological footprint.
What is SEER/SCOP
Seasonal efficiency reflects a heat pump’s or air conditioner’s true energy consumption, reflected as annual energy consumption, and efficiency (SEER value in cooling, SCOP value in heating) in typical day-to-day use, and on a longer term. It takes into account temperature fluctuations and standby periods to give a clear and reliable indication of their energy efficiency, for an entire heating or cooling season.
Daikin: Forerunner of innovation
Daikin has taken up the challenge long before the Eco-Design directive came into force.
Already in 2010, Daikin launched a new light commercial range fully optimised for seasonal efficiency: Seasonal Inverter.
Today Daikin is proud to indicate excellent seasonal performances for its entire residential and light commercial range up to 12kW.
In September 2015, all heating systems, including those using heat pumps, have received an energy label to help customers make the most energy-efficient choice.
Low environmental impact
With our inverter controlled heat pumps taking a central place in our current product portfolio, we have already pulled the card of air conditioning and heating systems with low environmental impact.
Low running costs
Being the first in the industry to work towards optimal seasonal efficiency values, Daikin wants to be a pioneer in high-efficiency cooling and heating systems, resulting in low running costs all year long.
