TYPES OF HEAT PUMP INSTALLATIONS
BACK TO BACK HEAT PUMP INSTALLATION
This is the most common type of installation, and the cost of back to back installation is included in our Auckland heat pump specials.
The indoor and outdoor unit are installed on the same wall, with a maximum of 4 metres between the indoor and outdoor units. The outdoor unit is mounted on plastic feet, and if it is a garden or grass installation we install a Polyslab base to give a firm surface for the outdoor unit to site on, and prevent weeds and other growth around the unit.
All fittings are UV protected, fixtures are galvanised or stainless to prevent rusting. A waterproof switch is installed next to the unit and the wired to a suitable local power source.
If a new circuit is needed from the switch board, there may be an extra cost.
WALL BRACKET INSTALLATION
If the ground is particularly sloping, or the surface is not suitable for ground mounting, an Anti-vibration Wall Bracket can be used instead.
There is an extra cost for this type of installation, and wall mounting is not suitable for all types of wall construction.
Plaster walls are not strong enough, hardies and weatherboard walls sometimes allow noise to resonate inside.
LONGER PIPE RUNS
Most models of heat pumps can be installed with up to 15-20 metres of pipe and cabling between the indoor and outdoor units.
There is an extra cost for this type of installation which can be measured and quoted on site.
ROOF BRACKET INSTALLATION
In some cases the outdoor unit can be mounted on a roof if required. Not all types of homes are suitable for roof mounting.
There is an extra cost for roof mounting, and we can advise you of the cost and whether this is a suitable option for you on site.
