Is this just the same as Daikin's Altherma? Thoughts?

    Would work well for radiant slabs or low temp emitters. What ever happened to the Altherma? I never actually saw one in person.

    The Altherma likely failed in the North American market because they were operating from outside the U.S. and didn't have the heavy support here needed to introduce a new product like this.

    SpacePak/Mestek does though http://spacepak.com/hydronic-heating-and-cooling

    Altherma did not meet the California Energy Code, that was the end of it
