STEP 3: THE INSTALLER CONTACTS YOU
A few days after you receive your installer's name, they will contact you to arrange a site visit (of course, if you prefer, you can contact the installer yourself, once you receive their details).
STEP 4: THE SITE VISIT
A site visit allows the heat pump installer to understand your needs and the possibilities of your home. With that information, we can propose the best product for your needs.
The installer will check:
- The energy efficiency of your house. What materials are used in your house? How well is it insulated? What type of glazing do you have?
- Your existing central heating system and needs. How large is your house? Which rooms need cooling, heating, ventilation or air purifiers? How many heating elements (like radiators) do you have in your house? How powerful are they?
- Your lifestyle. How many people live under your roof? How often are you at home? What is your preferred temperature in your home? How much hot water do you use?
- Practical information for the heat pump installation. The certified installer will check where to install outdoor and indoor units and where to lay the piping.
If you have questions for the installer, the site visit is the best time to ask them. Some of the questions you might want to ask are:
- Is a heat pump right for me? Your installer can help you, by discussing your needs and expectations, your existing setup and also the financial implications, to decide if a heat pump is the right solution for you.
- Which type of heat pump is most suitable for my home? The installer can explain the different types of heat pump and their costs and installation procedures, to help find out which is best for you. Typically these might include a high- or low-temperature air-to-water heat pump, a ground source heat pump or a hybrid system.
- Do I need any additional building works for a heat pump to work efficiently? At the visit, your installer may suggest some steps you can take to maximise your heat pump's efficiency, especially if you live in an older building. They could include loft or wall insulation, draughtproofing or double glazing.
- What capacity heat pump do I need? To recommend the right capacity heat pump for your needs, your installer will consider the size of the property, along with several other factors including its age and its energy efficiency. This will ensure your heat pump provides precisely what your home needs, no more and no less.
STEP 5: THE PRICE QUOTE
Shortly after the site visit, the heat pump installer will send you a quote for your desired solution.
In the offer you will find:
- The price of the products: the price of the outdoor unit, the indoor unit, and the controller
- The price for other materials needed for the job: the piping and any other parts necessary to install your heat pump
- The price of the installation: the work that goes into installing your heat pump
Additionally, the installer might offer you a maintenance contract
Good to know: you might receive subsidies or tax benefits!
In most countries, heat pumps are eligible for subsidies or tax benefits. Check local incentives that apply once you get your price quote. It would be a pity to miss out on these!
STEP 6: THE HEAT PUMP INSTALLATION
Once you accept the quote, you can count down to the day we install your new heat pump.
Tip: Order your heat pump well in advance. Particularly as winter nears, our certified installers can be very busy. The installation of your heat pump itself is quick: it usually takes just one or two days to install your heat pump and switch it on.
These are the steps your certified installer will typically take to install the outdoor unit of your heat pump system:
- Choose the best place: the installer will take into account how strong the surface is and how much space there is around the unit
- Place the unit: it must be securely fastened on a completely level surface, ideally on blocks, with space at the top for maintenance
- Install the drain: a drain plug allows the installer to drain the outdoor unit
- Widen the end of the pipes: the end of the piping is cut, deburred and widened
- Fix the refrigerant pipes: union nuts are used to attach the widened sections of the pipes
- Check for gas leaks: once the pipes are connected, the installer vents the unit and checks for gas leaks
- Fill with coolant: in Daikin heat pumps this is usually the refrigerant R-32, which is filled in liquid state through the gas pipe
- Connect the cooling pipes: the installer uses a special pipe bender and is careful to make sure no moisture or dust gets into the pipe
- Electrical wiring: the electricity is connected and an earth leakage detector and circuit breaker are fitted
- Trial run and testing: the installer measures the supply voltage and tests the system in both cooling and heating mode
