Daikin Applied introduced the Daikin SmartSource Dedicated Outdoor Air System (DOAS), its next generation of heat pump heating technology enables efficient and cost-effective heating and cooling in all conditions using 100% of fresh, outdoor air. The new unit features exclusive SmartBoost Heat Technology, allows air as cold as 0 degrees Fahrenheit to enter without any pre-heating, all while achieving 49% higher than ASHRAE 90.1-2016 minimum efficiency.
Alan Youker, Product Manager, Daikin Applied said: “Striking the right balance between maintaining fresh, clean air throughout a building—and doing so cost-effectively—is no simple task, but it’s increasingly important today as we think about how to achieve healthy indoor environments. The SmartSource Dedicated Outdoor Air System is a new technology for facility managers seeking a reliable and tech-forward way of ensuring optimal indoor heating and cooling with unmatched efficiency.”
The SmartSource DOAS taps a water source heat pump’s hot gas reheat coil in addition to the unit’s primary DX coil. The resulting heating efficiencies—up to 5.1 ISCOP2 per AHRI 920-2020—coupled with the latest advancements in electronically commutated motors and industry-leading shaftless blower technology help ensure premium performance.
