5 tips for a good investment
5 things to keep in mind when buying a heat pump
When investing in a heat pump system, buying the right type, model and capacity is vital. Heat pumps have an important impact on your comfort and health at home. These tips will help you choose the right heat pump for your space and needs so that you get the most out of your investment.
1. Year-round energy efficiency
All Daikin units heat and cool homes with high energy efficiency ratings, keeping your energy bill low. With our solutions, you’ll enjoy the perfect climate year-round in an energy-friendly way.
2. The right capacity
When choosing a heat pump system, it is important to determine the required heating/cooling capacity. A system with too little capacity can offer disappointing results, while a system that is overqualified will have a more powerful airflow than necessary, resulting in an unpleasant comfort. Figuring out the perfect capacity is a balancing act – but your Daikin installer can assist you with that.
3. Match your interior
Every home is unique. With its stylish heat pump units and wide range of models, Daikin offers comfortable and energy-efficient solutions for every room.
- Our wall mounted units (Standard, Cora and Zena Vogue) fit perfectly into any interior, offer great comfort and some have even been awarded with the world’s most prestigious design awards.
- Our floor standing units (like Perfera) fit perfectly under a windowsill or in a room where height is limited.
If you don’t want to see your indoor unit at all, you can choose a ducted system. This model is hidden in the roof space so that only the outlet grilles are visible.
4. Take care of your outdoor unit
When installing a heat pump with an outdoor unit, many people only pay attention to the indoor unit because it is most visible inside. But the location of the outdoor unit might be even more important, since it can have a huge impact on the proper functioning of the entire system. The outdoor unit is the heart of the heat pump system, therefore it should not be forgotten. Make sure the air inlet and outlet are not obstructed by obstacles or leaves. Have a look at your unit before the start of summer and winter season to ensure its optimal operation.
5. Order your unit in time
Don’t wait for the first cold or hot day to order your heat pump system. First of all, you won’t be the only one to want a unit installed quickly and the agendas of authorised installers will be full. Secondly, it usually takes some time before the heat pump of your choice can be delivered. The period between the order and the actual installation can take a few weeks.
