Heat pump installation

Postby syrups » Tue 05 Jul, 2016 01:52

Hello. I am new to the forum so this may be an old question. I have bought a new Calorex heat pump but have been let down by the person who was going to install it. I have been given a quote for the installation from a company but the price seems to be crazy. There is no issue with access or ventilation. Does anyone know roughly how much it ought to cost? And if there is anyone in the Surrey area that could be recommended please? Thanks

I installed my own heat pump so I don't have a price to install
The first consideration is a decent concrete base to stand it on and connect it into the return line with a bypass and three valves
The valves would be fitted to the heat pump flow and return and bypass. This allows you to close the heat pump valves and open the bypass to cut out the heat pump when not required.
Do make provision to drain down when freezing is probably
You would need an electrician to connect it
Are you in Surrey UK if so you can try asking these people their advice http://www.heatpumps4pools.com/
