Where is the best place to install a heat pump?

Is your heat pump installation project about to come to fruition? But have you thought about where you will install the indoor and outdoor units?

Firstly, regarding the installation of the outdoor unit, you must contact your municipality to find out the regulations in force so that your installation complies.

You must also take into account the specifications, particularly regarding the clearance around the device. Also, the indoor unit should not be exposed to direct sunlight.

The best place to install the indoor unit of a heat pump is in the middle of a wall of the room not far from the outdoor unit to avoid excessive connections. Very often, this is the clearest place which therefore allows better circulation and diffusion of the air passing through the heat pump. Many professionals also recommend installing a wall unit above the main door leading into the room.

In all cases, it is advisable to avoid installing a wall unit:

  • near a large glazed surface such as a bay window;
  • in the immediate vicinity of a heat source;
  • opposite a sofa or bed;
  • above the dining table.

Do not hesitate to contact us for any questions related to your future installation.
