Heat pumps are among some of the efficient devices that can be easily fitted at home. The best thing about the heat pump is that they provide much heat but at the same time consume less power. Geothermal heat pump, air to air system and water source type of air conditioners can be easily installed to homes During high temperatures, despite the fact that the heat pump is used to produce heat it also converts the heat into cold air. So as to avoid any damage or loss of any component of the heat pump it is essential to follow proper guidelines of the installation. it is vital to use the correct type of material and at the same time use the right kind of ductwork to make sure that the pump works efficiently.
The the best place to set a heat pump is a few inches from the wall of your home. Putting ventilation in mind it is important to note that the for proper ventilation, the vent should be situated some inches always from the wall. it must be put into consideration there must be clearance for ventilation to avoid cases of disastrous fire due to lack of air flow. Always ensure that combustible materials are not used for the pump.Highly flammable materials should be avoided in heat pumps.
Let’s look at placing. One has to construct a place for the heat pump somewhere outside the house. The Ideal placing of a heat pump is constructing a slab on which the heat pump will be placed on and also creating the surrounding of the heat pump with gravel. The significance of the placing outside the house is so as to avoid disturbances that are caused by the vibrations when the pump is functioning. it is necessary to put in place two handles inside the home. The the gap between the two handlers should be 15 feet or less, if this is not the case then the then the filter wire should short. The the width of the insulating material should be around one and a half inch.
Some of the pumps are placed on rooftops therefor it is essential to put in consideration that the pump need anchoring. Isolators should be used as the anchoring tool for the pump. it is vital to make sure that the roof curb is at level and can hold the pump.
It is essential to note that to connect the inside unit to the outside unit you must use copper. The valve cap of the pump must be fitted using a copper tuning and when this is done the valve cap should be tightly closed and sealed.
