Energy saving tips

How can I save energy with my heat pump?

When electricity prices are high, the heat pump is a real piggy bank. Thanks to the fact that it draws free energy from nature, it gives four times more energy than it consumes. So if you already have a heat pump save up to 75% of your purchased electricity - compared to someone who has direct-acting electricity.

You lower your indoor temperature

Lower your indoor temperature

By lowering the room temperature by 1 degree during the heating season, you can save about 6% of your heating costs, a little depending on where in the country you live and the type of house. An average family in a villa with 21°C indoor temperature, consumes approximately 4,000 – 8,000 kWh for just the heat in one year, which gives an estimated saving of 250 – 500 kWh/year. Imagine how much you can save if you have 23°C at home and lower it to 20°C – and maybe a bit more in the bedroom to sleep better.

Lower your indoor temperature

Set the temperature of your S-series heat pump

Use the Smart guide on the heat pump's display to help you change the temperature.

Review the temperature, room by room

Can you lower the temperature a little more in the bedroom, guest room or garage? When you have a wireless temperature sensor and a wireless radiator thermostat in the room, they communicate with your intelligent heat pump, which automatically adjusts to the temperature you have chosen.

A quicker shower does the trick

The shower takes about 2/3 of a household's hot water consumption. Reduce the shower time and you and your family can then lower the consumption by 30% - 40% and get a saving of approximately. 300 - 600 kWh in a year.

Lower the Comfort mode on the hot water

In our heat pumps there are several comfort modes for hot water and most households have room to lower the comfort mode one level. For an average family in a villa with a heat pump, the hot water uses approximately. 1,000 – 1,500 kWh/year. If you lower from normal to small/economy comfort mode, you can save approx. 150 kWh/year.

Do not heat hot water unnecessarily

Many of our heat pumps have the Smart Control function, as do our water heaters in the Compact Smart Control series. This means that they learn your hot water usage to save energy automatically.
If you have very irregular hot water use, it may be better to have the water heater on the lowest comfort setting during the workdays and activate hot water when you need it.

Turn off the water in the summerhouse

By turning off your summer house's electric water heater during the winter months, you save approximately 300 kWh, compared to if it were to run at full capacity and still not be used. Turn the thermostat knob down to the lowest temperature possible or turn it off completely. If you turn it off completely, you must empty the water heater or have some heat on in the house, so the water does not freeze.

lower ventilation during the day

Lower ventilation during the day

Do you have an exhaust air heat pump or a ventilation accessory connected to your heat pump? Then there are different ways to reduce the ventilation when the need is lower if you have an intelligent heat pump. Either by reducing the ventilation when you leave home, and then increasing it again when you get home. Or by setting up wireless carbon dioxide sensors in the rooms that communicate with the heat pump in the S series - and which also lowers the ventilation when the need is lower.

Lower ventilation during the day

Set Home/Away mode in your S-series heat pump

In the Away-mode home screen, you can start or stop the feature.

Measure the energy consumption in the electrical outlets

How much do your electric products draw? With a "smart plug" between the socket and the cord, you can measure the energy consumption and choose to switch off functions that use a lot of energy.

Open the thermostatic vents

The heat pump works more efficiently and draws less energy when you have fully open thermostatic valves. Therefore, it is better to lower the indoor temperature in the heat pump than to close the thermostatic valves. If you get unnecessarily hot in a room when you have done this, you can of course use the thermostat to lower the heat there.
