What is the most efficient way to use a heat pump?
Heat pumps operate most efficiently when holding a steady temperature. Turning a heat pump down when you’re away or asleep may actually use more energy than leaving it on. The reason is that it has to work harder to come back to the desired temperature than it does to maintain it.
Should you turn heat pump down at night?
You shouldn’t need to shut your heat pump off at night. Heat pumps are designed to work at maximum efficiency when set to the desired temperature and allowed to run as needed. Heat pumps are designed to regulate the home’s temperature as directed by the thermostat.
Should heat pump run all day?
The heat pump is designed to run continuously to give you as much of the cheap heat as you can possibly get. This helps to minimize the more expensive heat made from the backup coils. But do not be alarmed when the back up heat runs on the cold days.
