How to connect a heat pump to solar panels: green electricity for your comfort.

Are you a fan of green energy and want to do something for the environment while enjoying optimal comfort at home? The good news is that you can plug your heat pump into solar panels for a clean, renewable source of energy. But how to do it ? Follow our brief guide to get you on the right track.

First, you have to understand that solar panels are like tree leaves, they capture the sun's energy to transform it into electricity. And the heat pump is a bit like your body regulating its internal temperature to stay comfortable. So how do you get these two elements to work together in harmony?

Step 1: Choose the right material

As with any surgery, you need the right equipment. In this case, you need solar panels, an inverter, a charge controller, batteries and of course, a Kanartic heat pump. Please refer to the data sheets of the systems you need for the sizing of your solar panels.

For example, for a 9000BTU, the consumption is 569Wh in air conditioning mode and 902Wh in heating mode.
You will need to power the machine during the day with solar panels delivering at least the consumption of your heat pump. Obviously the heat pump works by cycle (it is not permanently in function)... The energy of solar panels will therefore be stored in the batteries during these famous sleep cycles.
The solar panels as well as the batteries must be chosen accordingly (supply of equipment during the day + charging of the batteries for night operation)

Step 2: Installation

The long-awaited moment has arrived, you are going to plug it all together. Simply put, it's like putting together a cooking recipe. You take all the ingredients, mix them together and you have a delicious dish. In this case, you will connect the solar panels to the inverter, the inverter to the charge controller, the charge controller to the batteries and finally, the batteries to a voltage inverter which will give you a perfect 220 volt sinusoidal curve then to the heat pump (as well as your other systems) . There you go, your system is ready to go.

Step 3: Use

Now that everything is in place, all that remains is to enjoy the comfort of your home while respecting the planet. But be careful, you have to monitor your electricity consumption like your food balance. Avoid excesses and optimize the use of your heat pump to get the maximum benefit.

In conclusion, connecting a heat pump to solar panels is like having a heart transplant. It takes an energy giver, an energy receiver and a heart to connect them. And the result is a healthy body in a healthy environment. So go ahead, connect your heat pump to solar panels and enjoy the comfort of your home while preserving the environment.
