How the System Works!

MAINTENANCE

Systems that go without maintenance typically lose 5% efficiency every year. Regular maintenance is vital for all Heat Pump to optimise performance, prevent breakdowns and boost energy efficiency.

Failing to service your Heat Pump units can cause blockages in your system. These can cause the units to short cycle and consume much more energy, as well as leading to water leaks. ETECK carries out planned and reactive maintenance, whether we’ve installed your system or not. Maintenance visits vary depending on your system, environment and the work that needs doing.

Maintenance will always include:

  • How the system is performing and address any concerns
  • Clean filters, airways, and evaporator coils
  • Inspect electrical wiring
  • Test and clean condensate drains
  • Check refrigerant levels and pressure, identifying any leaks
  • Check compressor amperage
  • Inspect insulation and pipework
  • Clean and sanitise all units (annually)
  • Test system in heating and cooling modes
  • Complete service report

VENTILATION SYSTEM

An in-house ventilation system, also known as “positive input” ventilation (PIV) is when the naturally warmed air (from a roof cavity) is drawn into a fan that filters and freshens the air and delivers it back into the main living spaces of a home.

Through this process the damp air is naturally forced out and replaced by the refreshed, healthy air from the fan.

Positive Input Ventilation (PIV), or more simply, in-house ventilation, is very important in making your house a healthier place to live. The in-house air pollutants and moisture produced can contribute to an unhealthy environment. Evidence of this includes:

  • High dust levels,
  • Condensation on windows and walls,
  • Mould and mildew on ceilings, and
  • A generally damp, cold feeling inside the house

Everyday living activities causes these problems: such as cooking, drying clothes in the drier, and showering all lead to moisture being produced into the household atmosphere; using aerosol sprays produces pollutants, warming the house via freestanding gas heaters, the main by-product of gas being water vapour.

We also give off an estimated 2 Litres of moisture (per person) from our own human bodies each day.

If you are producing or introducing moisture into your home, then mould can generate.

If you do live in a “damp” house, i.e. you have over 60% humidity levels/moisture content in the air, there is also the problem of dust particles being trapped and settling on moist surfaces, which then the mould spores will land on and can generate more mould.

Solution:

PIV gently supplies tempered, filtered air back into the home using heat from within the roof space.

Customers have commented on improvements in their previous health troubles with conditions such as Asthma and Respiratory Infections, due to installing a system to improve the air quality of their home.

PIV systems have also been known to additionally benefit the customer by way of reduced energy usage (a net energy gain): using less energy to heat the dry air within your home, rather than heating the moisture particles in a damp house (which uses more energy.)
