How to use your Air Source Heat Pump Correctly
Firstly, you need to make sure that your home is correctly insulated before you even consider installing an Air Source Heat Pump. As with any form of heating system it’s important to have a properly insulated home so that you don’t waste valuable energy trying to heat a room with a draft.
A draft impacts how much energy you use because it imbalances your homes heat. If I had an insulated home and heated it to 20 degrees Celsius I could turn the heating off for an hour or two and the room would still be warm. However, if the home is poorly insulated then the house’s temperature will drop because the draft will bring in cold air from the outside meaning you’ll have to keep the heating on to counteract this. If you have to keep your heating constantly on then you’re going to be spending more money.
The obvious thing to do is to get your home sufficiently insulated and make sure you eliminate any drafts. There are many companies that offer this kind of service so have a look online to see what the best choice is for your home. Once you’ve done you can get an Air Source Heat Pump installed into your home.
Controlling your Air Source Heat Pump and managing it correctly is the best way to make sure you’re spending less on your heating bill. You can keep your Air Source Heat Pump on constantly; however, you should make sure you’ve got your thermostat set up correctly.
You can have different settings for different rooms. If you’re not using a room don’t heat it up, if you are using a room put a timer on for the heating to shut off at a certain time. Having an effective system in place is a sure fire way to reduce your heating bills. If you have any doubts make sure you talk to your installer to clarify any issues you may have.
