How to use the heat pump efficiently

heat pump

How to use the heat pump efficiently, in order to use the heat pump efficiently, we must bear in mind that the Compressor is the component that needs the most energy to function.

Due to this we will have to adapt the operation of our device so that it creates a comfortable environment in the room but at the same time consumes the minimum energy required to do so.

Setting the Thermostat correctly

We have to understand that no matter how much we raise the temperature on our thermostat, the heat pump is NOT going to give more heat.

In both air conditioning and a heat pump, the device always produces the same temperature, what happens is that when it reaches the desired temperature in our home, the system is designed to turn off the compressor.

When the temperature drops again, the compressor starts again and the same process is repeated.

Tricks and Tips for Heat Pumps (2)

This means that if you place your equipment at 18º C or 30º C it will give the same temperature, then we must set an optimal temperature so that the device heats the space we want enough while spending the minimum of electricity due to prolonged stops of the compressor. Of course, all this, without you getting cold.

It is a myth, the belief that if we put the heat pump in full operation it will heat much more. That is not right. The trick is to find a temperature balanced with the environment in addition to having good insulation that allows to retain the heat that the device throws, in such a way that energy savings are achieved through passive and active devices.
