Air Source Split System Installation

We are going to install daikin alfirma low temperature heat pump. This is the outdoor unit the bit that sits in your garden this is the indoor bit that sits in your plant room or wherever you decide it’s going to be installed in your house. This absorbs the heat from the atmosphere and this part transfers the heat into your water system so it’s for your central heating or your hot water.

These have to be piped together from the refrigeration standpoint, so there are two pipes that will run from the outdoor unit to the indoor unit that have to be installed by a specialist refrigeration installer. They must be qualified to ensure that this equipment is put in correctly, legally and environmentally safe.

There’ll be two pipes, one pipe is larger than the other. The smaller pipe will carry refrigerant liquid refrigerant into the indoor unit and the larger pipe returns
vaporized refrigerant back to the outside unit.
