Heat pumps are one of the most efficient heating and cooling systems available. This is because they transfer hot and cold air rather than generating it. While this helps them run at a lower cost compared to other solutions, running costs can still fluctuate. In winter, your use of the heat pump and therefore your power consumption may increase and if you are in sweltering heat during summer, you can also experience a spike in running costs. Reducing these running costs is all about operating your heat pump in a way that is most efficient and economical.
Economical Heat Pump OperationThere are a number of ways you can reduce the running cost of your heat pump in summer and winter, such as:
Choosing the Right Heat Pump Model for Your Space
Having the right type and size unit for your space is crucial. If your heat pump is too small, it will use more energy to heat or cool the space. If it’s too large, you will have to keep switching it off to prevent overheating. The size and type of heat pump you need depends on the level of insulation, how many windows there are and climate.
Some heat pumps don’t perform as well in the cold. If you’re in an area that drops to below -5ºC outside, you will need a heat pump that is built to perform in those conditions. Placement is also important. The outside unit needs good airflow and as much winter sun as possible. It needs protection from elements that might cause corrosion like sea spray.
