Installation, repair and maintenance of wall heat pump in montreal (qc)

The heat pump a device that allows you to have an adequate temperature in your home in order to live comfortably. In summer, heat pumps will remove heat from your home so you can take advantage of the air conditioning. On the other hand, they will extract the heat that is in the outside air in winter. Heat-pump-type air conditioning units can be very economical in terms of energy consumption. The heat pump should always be in good condition, so here’s how to install, repair and maintain your unit.

Description of the Wall Heat pump

The Wall heat pump is both economic and ecological. That’s why more and more Montrealers prefer the wall heat pump. It is a device that can transfer heat from one place to another. Note then that refrigerators and air conditioners are like Thermopompes that work in cooling mode. The Wall Heat pump has a main component called a reversible valve. It is under this valve that your ambient air is warmed. In fact, your unit will displace heat through the evaporation and condensation of a refrigerant. The said fluid circulates between two coils through a compressor. It is this compressor that promotes the production of most of the heat. The refrigerant is then evaporated at low pressure in one of the coils via the piping to absorb heat from the ambient air. Then the refrigerant is pumped to the second coil. At this stage, it will condense at high pressure while releasing the heat absorbed at the beginning of the cycle. Thanks to the inversion valve, the cooling cycle can be reversed in your interior. This is why air conditioners following this principle will carry outwards, the heat being in your home. Finally, note that the heat pump cycle can be regulated in such a way that you have the right temperature in winter and summer.

Maintenance of the Wall Heat pump

It is imperative that you regularly clean your heat pump. This will give you better air quality and will optimize your unit’s efficiency. For this purpose, you must clean your appliance’s outside coil. In order to maximize the life of your Wall heat pump, it is strongly recommended to clean the filter on a monthly basis. As for the electrostatic filter, you must clean it every two months. This requires that the unit be lifted in order to let the surrounding air take care of its drying. Also, make sure that the mouths of the led and the covers are not blocked by any element of your room. You should also clean the grate thoroughly frequently to avoid obstruction. It will also be necessary to ensure that there is no snow deposit on the fan of your wall heat pump. It is recommended to call on a professional for quality maintenance.

How do I install a Wall Heat pump?

We strongly recommend that this type of work be done by a professional, however, here are the steps involved in the installation of you wall heat pump.

It is important to install your heat pump in a place where the sun does not send too much of its rays, and that respects the manufacturer’s conditions. The wall must be solid enough to support the weight of your device. Now you will securely attach the mounting plate to the wall and drill a downward sloping hole through which the piping will pass. You will now move the refrigeration pipes into your hole by first wrapping them in an insulation sheath and connecting them to the wall unit.

From then on, the drainage pipe will pass and be connected to the internal unit. You have to pass the electrical cable outside by tying it all up with a good ribbon. Then you will install the exterior unit and electrical wiring between your two units. Now you will connect the refrigeration piping to your external unit. Your circuit must now be waterproof by making a vacuum until you get a pressure of -30 psi as well as a micron reading of moisture under 500 microns. To do this, connect your vacuum pump to the service faucet. Isolate the empty spaces of the hole with the urethane expansion insulation and cover your plumbing with a coating. You can now turn on your Wall heat pump.

Repairing the device

If your wall heat pump is in heating mode and you don’t have an answer, turn off and turn on its circuit breaker again. In case the diodes are on and you don’t have hot air although you hear the fan, turn off the thermostat. Start the heat pump again and turn on your thermostat. If it doesn’t work within 5 minutes, feel free to contact us at 514-292-7595.
If your Wall Heat pump is out of service, turn off your thermostat and set it at 20 degrees Celsius. If you don’t have answers within 30 minutes, let the fan run to melt the frost that would have lodged in the coils. If you still weren’t successful, call an Expert from SolutionAir Conditioning.
