Tips to Help Educate Customers on how to Improve Efficiency and Keep Costs Down with their Firebird Enviroair Air Source Heat Pump

The Firebird Enviroair Air Source Heat Pump is a highly efficient and eco-friendly heating option for new build properties and developments. As more and more homeowners opt for renewable energies like heat pumps, installers can help customers maximise the efficiency of their Firebird Enviroair heat pump by providing advice on how to maintain it year-round. Nick Phelan, Renewables Manager at Firebird has outlined these methods. 

The homeowner needs to understand how the heat pump system operates and use the heating controls correctly in order to maximise its efficiency during seasonal changes. Holding a steady temperature allows heat pumps to operate most efficiently. Many may think that turning the temperature of the heat pump down when they are away or asleep could save them money on running costs, but as it has to work harder to reach the desired temperature, it could actually end up costing them more.  It is recommended to set it at a comfortable temperature and leave it. ”

Nick explains further, “Even if the house feels warm enough, hot water isn’t needed, or there is a desire to save money, it is not advisable to turn off the heat pump completely. Doing so will cause the system to have to work harder in the colder months, using more electricity in order to reach its peak performance level.”

Designed to provide an economical and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional heating and hot water systems, the Enviroair Air Source Heat Pumps from Firebird are available in single phase outputs from 7.5 to 16kW. Featuring a single Monobloc unit which is installed outside the property, the range provides a compact and space saving solution. Cheaper to install than a ground source heat pump, every 1kW of electricity used to power an Enviroair Air Source Heat Pump provides up to 5kW of energy to a home. It is ultra-quiet in operation and emits fewer decibels than a domestic fridge, making it the perfect choice for renewable home heating.

Together with the Firebird Envirocyl Quick Plumb Unit and the Enviroair Underfloor Heating and Ventilation Systems, Firebird can provide you with your full heating package for a new build or home upgrade.

Designed to achieve the highest possible levels of efficiency, Firebird products not only provide a heating solution that is cost-effective, but one that will stand the test of time. All products undergo rigorous testing procedures by external standards agencies to ensure optimum performance and efficiency.
