Heat Pumps: Floor Mounted Vs Wall Mounted

Heat Pumps: Floor Mounted Vs Wall Mounted

There are different styles of heat pumps available for your residential or commercial property. As experts in the field of supplying, installing, maintaining and repairing these units, we’ve written a guide on how to choose between a floor mounted or wall mounted heat pump. First, let’s take a look at the differences between the two.

Floor mounted heat pump

Simply put, these units are mounted on the floor. Floor heat pumps take up floor space in your home but make cleaning them easier as they are easier to reach. Floor console heat pumps are great for getting an instant result as the heat coming from them is distributed directly in front of you, so the warmth is felt a little quicker. This provides heat to the surface of the floor, and so it will rise naturally, while heating the rest of the house. It is recommended to place the floor console heat pump on the ground floor and use more than one unit if you have several rooms. 

Wall-mounted heat pump

A wall-mounted heat pump is a device that heats or cools a home by transferring heat energy whilst being mounted high on a wall. By sucking in air from inside to outside or vice versa, heating or cooling your home. It uses a compressor to pump condensed or vaporized refrigerant through the coils. This makes a heat pump the perfect device to keep your home at a comfortable temperature all year round. In addition, heat pumps can also improve indoor air quality by acting as a humidity regulator, reducing humidity levels during hot summer months and as a humidifier in winter to keep the air from drying out. Wall-mounted heat pumps look complicated, but they’re actually quite simple. This is a very effective way to help you enjoy the comfort of your home any time of the year.
