The Nibe Fighter range of heat pumps from the 1120, 1140, 1220, 1240, and up to the current models 1145 & 1245 will keep a running total of the hours the heat pump has run. These will include
- Hot Water Run Time
- Number of Starts
- Number of compressor hours
- Number of add heat hours (immersion)
From this data, combine with the date of installation, Green Light Solutions can work out your Nibe heat pump running costs to date. If you have high heat pump running costs and high ESB heat pump bills then action can be taken to reduce these costs.
The above data can be very useful too in diagnostics. For example an average home will have a heat pumps that spends 20% of it’s time doing hot water and 80% doing heating. If however a heat pump is running for 50% hot water and 50% heating then there is usually is concrete cause of this poor performance. A heat pump will draw far more amps on a hot water cycle than a heating cycle therefore it is far more expensive to do hot water than heating.
This video shows you how to find the required data from your nibe heat pump. If you wish to contact Green Light Solutions then we can process this data, calculate your Nibe heat pump running costs, suggest changes to settings to decrease heat pump running costs and analyze heat pump performance.
