How to Install an Air Source Heat Pump?

Air source heat pumps are popular among consumers due to their low cost and higher safety. The installation of air source heat pumps, like other types of water heaters, requires strict control, otherwise it may affect normal use in the future. So how should air source heat pumps be installed specifically?

The location of air source heat pump installation

The most suitable choice for air source heat pump installation is generally on enclosed balconies. Here is a semi-enclosed space. After installation, it will not affect the siesta in summer, and there is a ventilation device in winter, which is the best choice. For those exposed balconies, they can also be installed, which is simpler. If there is no balcony in the room, it can also be installed on a small platform or beam outside the wall. However, this is more dangerous, so the installation of the air source heat pump must pay attention to firm work. If the household bathroom and kitchen are relatively spacious, they can also be selected in these places, because kitchens and toilets are often the most used places for hot water. Using them here can give the best effect and avoid the output of hot water being affected by long pipes, etc. However, it is necessary to pay attention to the drainage design. The location of the roof platform can also be installed, but it is necessary to pay attention to the use of a waterproof box and be careful of adverse conditions. Installation on the wall is the most not recommended because in vibration situations, it is more likely to fall off, and the danger is even greater.

The drainage design when installing air source heat pumps

Water heaters discharge condensate, so drainage systems such as floor drains and water channels need to be done well. Usually, the bathroom needs to be drained smoothly, otherwise it may flow to other rooms, causing trouble. The control panel is also called the instrument panel, which needs to adhere to the proximity principle and pay attention not to be wet by rain. Currently, it can be selected in more conspicuous places, such as balconies and corridors, which are more convenient and safer to operate.

Air source heat pump installation requires water pipes. Here, water quality is required to be good, and the overall diameter of the water pipe needs to be larger, which can avoid the situation where the water temperature is not well controlled. The location needs to be selected according to actual needs to facilitate daily use.

In summary, this article introduces relevant knowledge about air source heat pump installation from selecting the position of water heaters, making good drainage facilities, installing instruments, and arranging water pipes. After air source heat pump installation is completed, not only is it helpful for future use, but it also ensures safety and reduces potential problems.
