Heat Pump Systems: Warranty, Maintenance, and Longevity
Heat pump systems are generally accompanied by a warranty lasting two to three years. Additionally, workmanship warranties, like those from QANW (Quality Assured National Warranties), can extend up to 7 years.
For added peace of mind, many manufacturers offer extended warranties at an additional cost.
With proper and regular maintenance, an Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP) can function effectively for over 20 years. Annual maintenance tasks include checking and clearing the air inlet grill and evaporator of debris, such as leaves, and ensuring no vegetation is obstructing the heat pump. Your installer might also suggest monitoring the central heating pressure gauge in your home, and should provide guidance on how to do this.
It's wise to request a written guide from your installer on specific maintenance checks to keep your system running smoothly. Before installation, consult with your supplier about the exact maintenance needs of your chosen heat pump.
Annual professional servicing is recommended to keep your heat pump in top condition. During colder months, anti-freeze can be used to prevent freezing. A professional installer will check the levels and concentration of anti-freeze during their service visit. Some heat pumps, particularly in domestic settings, may have external refrigeration pipes requiring annual servicing by a qualified refrigeration engineer.
Heat Pump Installation and Savings: Understanding Costs, Efficiency, and Benefits
Installation Costs The average cost to install a standard heat pump system is between £9,000 and £15,000. However, the running costs will vary, influenced by several factors such as the size of your home, its insulation level, and your desired room temperatures.
Potential Savings The amount you save by switching to a heat pump depends on your current heating system and the system you choose to install. Key factors affecting your savings include:
Heat Distribution System: Underfloor heating, if feasible, can be more efficient than traditional radiators as it requires less hot water. If underfloor heating isn't an option, appropriately sized radiators are recommended. Your installer can offer tailored advice for your setup.
Fuel Costs: Heat pumps run on electricity, meaning you'll still have fuel bills, but they're likely to be lower compared to what you might spend on other heating types.
Your Current Heating System: Switching from an inefficient old heating system to a new heat pump often leads to reduced running costs.
Water Heating Considerations: A heat pump providing hot water may affect its efficiency. To boost summer efficiency, consider pairing it with solar water heating.
Effective System Control: Understanding and correctly using your heat pump's controls is crucial. You might need to adjust the heating duration, possibly at a lower thermostat setting, to maximize comfort and efficiency. Your installer will guide you on how to best control your new system.
