How setback controls help heat pump operation

A downside of an air source heat pump can be that their efficiency will be lower at very cold temperatures. During these very cold temperatures, you will use more electricity during colder periods. Therefore, it is important that the comfort temperature is maintained throughout the colder months by running your system continuously to avoid excessive (and costly) thermal recovery loads during these times. This is where setback controls play a part in assisting heat pump performances.

Setback controls help heat pumps to operate as efficiently as possible while not being completely switched off. To learn more about setback controls and how they support the efficient operation of a heat pump, please visit our Knowledge Hub.

You can also contact your installing engineer who can help you set up setback control operation on your heat pump controller.
