What Problems Should Be Paid Attention to when Using Air Source Heat Pump for Heating?
- Issue Time
Based on many years of experience, SUOHER summarizes the precautions for using air source heat pumps for heating in this article, hoping to help everyone better apply air source heat pumps.
In the heating season of another year, the air source heat pump is a new type of heating method. While being popular, there are still some users who have misunderstandings. Therefore, before purchasing or restarting, be sure to do the following "homework" and really understand its working principle, so as to correctly use and maintain the performance of the unit.
Know the right energy-saving method
Generally speaking, most users use the air source heat pump for heating at night when the temperature is relatively low and may turn off the host when not in use during the day. This is actually very dangerous because the heat generated by the air source heat pump unit is transferred through the water as the carrier.
If the power is cut off when used in a low-temperature environment, the host is likely to be frozen. The correct method should be to set the set temperature of the unit to the lowest when the main engine is not required to work so that the unit can ensure the antifreeze function work so that the energy waste and antifreeze problems of the unit can be effectively solved.
Do not accumulate debris around the host
Air energy heat pump heating is to absorb the heat in the air, and then vaporize through the evaporator, compress it into high-pressure gas by the compressor, and then enter the condenser to liquefy, transfer the absorbed heat to the heated water, and so on, continue to absorb the low-temperature source heat and output the heated water to reach the predetermined temperature directly. If there is debris piled around the host and the distance is close, it will definitely affect the heat exchange effect. Generally speaking, leave at least 80 cm of distance around the host.
If the installation location is not well ventilated, it will affect the heating effect of the machine, so pay more attention to cleaning.
It should also be noted that the main engine fan blows out cold air. If there is debris in the front, it will affect the exhaust of the cold air, which will lead to insufficient heat in the air and affect the heat exchange effect. Therefore, the front of the fan should be free of obstructions within 2 meters. If it is too close, it may send the cold air back to the main unit, and the heating effect will be very low.
Find the after-sales service first when the host fails
The air energy heat pump host fails during operation. At this time, the user does not need to panic and cannot move the function keys on the control panel or disturb the host at will. Because this is not only useless, sometimes it can make the fault more serious.
Do not power off the host arbitrarily
Most users use an air energy heat pump for heating at night when the temperature is relatively low, and the temperature is high during the day or when they are not at home. In order to save electricity, they may turn off the host. This is actually very dangerous because the heat generated by the air-energy heat pump unit is transferred through the water as the carrier. If the power is cut off when used in a low-temperature environment, the host is likely to be frozen.
The correct method should be to set the set temperature of the unit to the lowest when the main engine is not required to work so that the unit can ensure that the antifreeze function works so that the energy waste and antifreeze problems of the unit can be effectively solved. After a long period of passive power failure, the antifreeze of the pipeline is a problem.
In addition, if there is a passive power outage, such as a power outage at the power supply bureau, or a power outage due to a circuit problem caused by a wind or snow disaster. If you encounter such a situation, the power outage may be longer. At this time, the user must take certain measures to prevent the host from freezing, open all the valves, and drain the water in the pipeline. In this way, even if there is a power failure, the pipeline, and the main engine can be prevented from freezing due to low temperature.
Don't disturb the function keys on the control panel
There are many buttons on the control panel of the host, some are for adjusting the temperature of the water, and some are for timing. If the user disturbs, it may affect the normal operation of the host. For example, if the timing key is pressed, the host may not start when it needs to work.
If the weather is suddenly very cold and the room temperature is not enough, you can adjust the outlet water temperature to 40℃ or above.
During installation, the installer will set the water temperature, etc., and tell the user which keys can be moved, and which keys should not be moved randomly. Generally, users only need to adjust the temperature of the outlet water.
When the indoor temperature is not enough, adjust the outlet water temperature higher, and lower the water temperature when the indoor temperature is too hot. For example, we generally set the outlet water temperature to 35℃and the room temperature to 18℃. If the weather is suddenly very cold and the room temperature is not enough, the outlet water temperature can be adjusted to 40℃.
Also, when the user is setting, it is best not to set the room temperature to a high level for the sake of "heating", because the temperature is high and the unit will work longer and consume more power. The room temperature is set to 18℃ and 25℃, the operating cost may double, so set the appropriate room temperature. For room ventilation, try to ventilate when the outdoor temperature is high during the day.
The correct installation and use of the air source heat pump can make the equipment more energy-saving and exert a more effective heating effect. If you want to know more about the air source heat pump after reading the above, SUOHER is happy to provide you with a comprehensive solution.
