Whether you are using your heat pump to keep your home warm during winter or give you air conditioning heat relief during summer, there are a few things you can do to make sure that your heat pump is running as efficiently as possible.
Every heat pump come with a timer. A few of the newer versions feature a seven day timer so your heat pump will switch on and off at different times each day for the entire week. Of course, this will all depend on your lifestyle. During winter, you may schedule your heat pump to switch on 45 minutes before you get up in the morning, so your kitchen and lounge are toasty once you start to make breakfast.
During summer, you may set your heat pump to turn on as you leave for work. When you get out of your hot vehicle and open the front door, you will be welcomed by a cool breeze. Using a timer is economical in both ways compared to just leaving the heat pump open all day even when there is no one at home. Using a timer can also help you avoid making the next mistake which will be discussed next.
Setting and Forgetting The Heat Pump
Ducted systems and heat pumps are not like the older boiler heating systems. Before, when there were oil fin heaters, people will turn up the thermostat as high as possible so that the system will heat up faster. Once their home began to get war, they would lower the temperature back to a temperature that is a bit more reasonable. Heat pumps are way smarter than that. When your heat pump heats your house to 32 degrees once you come home then switching it down again once you get too warm will not heat your house any quicker.
For power saving and economy, it is better to select a comfortable temperature, between a range of 18 and 22 degrees Celsius, and allow the heat pump to do its job. Always fiddling with the unit’s thermostat is another way of lower the efficiency of your heat pump unit and adding to your ever rising power bill.
