Daikin has identified R-32 as a beneficial refrigerant for residential air conditioners and heat pumps, and has been launching R-32-products into the worldwide market. For residential hot water supply systems, we consider it is appropriate to use R-32 or CO2 depending on the needs of the system. We keep proactively developing products to meet different needs.

Chilled/hot water generated by a chiller and heat pump passes through the pipes in a building and enters terminal units such as Air Handling Units (AHU) and Fan Coil Units (FCU) to cool/heat air. Chillers are typically located in the mechanical room or on the roof. It is important to select appropriate refrigerants that are suitable for various compressor types and applications depending on system and capacity.
