Heat Pumps

Heat Pump Installation

Heat pumps are the most efficient and cost-effective way to ensure your family stays warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Apart from offering temperature control, heat pumps also reduce humidity inside your house and improve the air quality, giving you fresh, clean air all year round, with no excess buildup of moisture.

Heat pumps are also safer than regular heaters, give you more control over temperature levels and distribute the warm air throughout the whole room, not just next to the heater.

Choosing the right model and size of heat pump is essential to finding the most effective solution for your home. Geographic location, building orientation, room size and levels of insulation are all factors to take into account when evaluating your needs.

Heat Pump Maintenance

To keep your heat pump in optimum working condition, manufacturers recommend that your heat pump is serviced every 3-6 months.

A heat pump that is regularly maintained uses between 10-35% less energy than a non-serviced heat pump, saving you money on your monthly power bill.

Regular maintenance will also make your unit last longer, is better for your health and will help to avoid costly repairs in the future.

How regularly does my heat pump need maintenance?

This depends on the type of unit you have, the size of the space and how frequently you use your heat pump. To find out the recommended service period for your unit, talk to one of our qualified heat pump technicians.

Seachange Electrical offers a regular maintenance program for both homeowners and businesses. When your heat pump is due for regular maintenance, we will be in touch to book an appointment.
