Keeping Your Heat Pump In Good Shape

HVAC Technician Checking Heat Pump

If you own a heat pump, you are responsible to check it regulary, if you want to keep it in good shape and increase its life span.

A heat pump is a smart device that ensures the comfort we need all year round. It works on the basis of well-defined algorithms and provides efficiency if rest of the installation (pipes, valves, flow meters etc.) work in optimal parameters.

Checking your heat pump and the equipment is easy and you can do it yourself.

First, you must ensure that the system is properly ventilates, then check the interior pressure and make sure it stays between 0.5-1.5 bar. Keep the exhaust air and filters clean. The radiator thermostats and floor heating must be fully opened. You also have to check the circulation pump operation and ensure that the correct Heating Curve is selected.

Check if the heat pump is in the correct mode (winter mode or automatic mode) and also that there is nothing clocking the flow in the installation.  Make sure the outside temperature of the heat pump is at a real temperature.
