    Frequently Asked Questions

    The cost of a heat pump and its installation can differ greatly depending on the size that would be needed for the size of your residential or commercial property. 

    The best route would be to consult with a professional plumber to determine the best course of action for your specific needs. Do not hesitate to contact us for an accurate assessment and quote.

    Heat pump installation involves several crucial steps to ensure optimal performance of the set-up. It begins with a thorough assessment of the property by a plumber to determine the best location and size for the unit, as proper sizing and placement are essential for efficiency. 

    Next, the installation team would prepare the site and integrate the system with existing components. Electrical connections would be made, and the unit would undergo rigorous testing and commissioning to ensure everything is operating smoothly.

    A heat pump installation operates similarly to how an air conditioner does, but in reverse. It pulls heat from the air around it, which then warms up the refrigerant inside. This refrigerant is compressed, increasing its temperature further. It then circulates through a heat exchanger, warming the water. Afterwards, the refrigerant expands, cools down, and is ready to absorb heat from the air once more. The process predominantly uses electricity for the compressor and a fan, while the bulk of the heating energy is indirectly sourced from the sun.

    Domestic heat pumps are highly efficient for heating water, requiring only a fraction of electricity to power the compressor, the system’s core component. The energy output in the form of heat can be up to four times the electrical input, significantly reducing electricity usage for water heating by up to a quarter of the conventional amount.

    Operating independently of direct sunlight or radiation, heat pumps extract thermal energy from the air any time, making them an alternative form of solar heating. They remain effective even in cold conditions. 

    Visually resembling an air conditioner, a heat pump can be installed on the ground or mounted on a wall. It features a quiet operation, a user-friendly interface, no greenhouse gas emissions, and requires minimal maintenance, making it an eco-friendly and convenient option for water heating.

    A heat pump should be installed by experts who are registered and qualified, such as those at Absolute Plumbing, to ensure that there is no damage to property or persons.
