Our Caernarfon air source heat pump has now been operational since the spring. It’s time to see how it performed over the course of the past three months as part of our autumn air source heat pump review.
It’s been a busy year filled with small and large projects, and we finally got around to having our chimneys swept. Last year, we had new chimneys and flues put in and we got our local chimney sweep in to ensure that they were still AOK.
We had our first snow of the winter followed by a day of brilliant blue skies – both were icy cold. The juxtaposition of these days has, however, created a clear picture of the effectiveness of our air source heat pump central heating.
We were recently asked by Global Energy Systems, the manufactures of our air source heat pump, to fully restart and reboot the system. This is a quick video to show the process.
My personal threshold for when ambient outdoor temperatures start to go cold is 11C. Over the course of its first six months our air source heat pump has not had to work very hard. As we hit October, the average temperature has dropped to around 11C and it’s a good time to evaluate how the pump is performing.
It has been five months since our air source heat pump has been installed so we felt it’s a good time to review the performance and efficiency of Global Energy System’s Caernarfon 18kW Eco Air Source Heat Pump (ASHP).
