Daikin Boilers: Compare Efficiency, Warranty & Price
In addition to condensing combi boilers, Daikin are at the forefront of renewable heating products such as air source heat pumps and innovative intelligent control systems which make this company a great choice if you’re looking for a future proofed heating solution that is one step ahead of the competition.
When it comes to finding out whether a Daikin combi boiler would be a suitable option for your home, you’ll need to compare the output rating, efficiency, warranty and potential cost.
- Output rating: Combi boilers have two separate output ratings – a central heating (CH) output and domestic hot water (DHW) output. Output rating is measured in kilowatts (kW) and, strictly speaking, the higher the output rating, the more powerful the boiler.
- Efficiency: When burning gas to generate central heating and hot water, not all of the fuel can be converted into usable energy. For this reason, checking the efficiency of a boiler is very important as it shows how much of the gas burned by the boiler contributes to the central heating and hot water. Daikin boilers are around 93% efficient, which puts them amongst the most efficient on the market.
- Warranty: Daikin combi boilers come with a 2 year warranty as standard which can be extended up to 7 years.
- Price: To get an exact quote for a Daikin combi boiler, you’ll need to get a quote from a Gas Safe registered engineer. Typically, a new combi boiler is likely to cost somewhere between £500 and £2,000.

Daikin boiler warranty
Every boiler manufacturer offers a standard warranty with their boilers which last between 1-10 years. The warranty is your insurance policy and means if a fault develops the manufacturer will resolve it within a specified time frame. Some warranties include both parts and labour while others may only cover parts. The most important thing to remember is to get your boiler serviced by a Gas Safe registered engineer every year as failing to do so is likely to invalidate your warranty.

Daikin renewable heating solutions
Daikin also specialises in renewable heating solutions for the modern home enabling homeowners to both reduce their carbon emissions and lower their energy bills through reduced use of fossil fuels. This includes an air to water heat pump (low or high temperature) and the Altherma Hybrid which is a system combining a Combi gas boiler with an air to water heat pump. This smart technology monitors the temperature outside and can calculate which of the two heating technologies will heat the home most efficiently and automatically switches between the two. Heat pumps are more effective in summer while a boiler may be needed in very cold weather. Find out more about hybrid heating systems here.
