Can fan coils in combination with a Daiken Altherma heat pump adaquately dehumidify in NC?
I’m excited about what appears to the emergence of air-to-water heat pumps at extremely high efficiencies. This surely is the answer for many of us who have struggled to combine radiant heat and AC and strive for simplicity.
Can a fan-coil running on the Daiken Atherma provide adaquate dehumidification? How cold is the refrigerant loop on a typical mini-split? and why is it inherently better at dehumidifying?
How does the cost of this system compare to a typical mini-split system excluding the cost of any radiant floor system? Let’s just say for comparison sake: a mini-split with three consoles versus the Daiken Altherma or similar with three fan coils? Will the Altherma be much more?
If these products prove to be dependable I think we might all be quite familiar with them in the near future.
