Professional, Yet Visually Pleasing Installation
Don’t be caught into thinking that you have a limited choice for positioning or location of your heat pump system. At Temprite, we often install heat pump indoor systems on internal walls or put in extra efforts to ensure outdoor units are positioned where they are less likely to have a visual impact on the exterior of your home.
If your outdoor heat pump requires installation in a garden or grass area, we provide concrete pavers to give the system a solid foundation to sit on. Our professionals then raise the unit on PVC mounting feet to provide clearance under the air conditioners’ outdoor unit. This helps in preventing premature corrosion of the base of the unit. External wall mounting is possible with the use of galvanised brackets or wall brackets.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?
Heating Process During Winters
- When heating, heat pumps move available heat from one place to another by way of a refrigeration cycle.
- The unit outside has a heat exchanger and fan.
- The outdoor unit absorbs heat energy in the atmosphere and transfers it to the home by way of refrigerant, which is pumped through the system by a compressor.
- The hot refrigerant is pumped through copper pipes to the indoor unit heat exchanger, where a fan passes the air across it warming the room.
Cooling Process During Summer
- In the summer season, the process reverses.
- The indoor unit’s heat exchanger absorbs heat energy from the indoor room air using a refrigerant as the heat transfer medium, cooling the room air.
- It then pumps back the refrigerant to the outdoor unit and ejects the heat energy into the air via the outdoor unit heat exchanger.
Or more simply put, just push the button on your remote controller, and in approximately 10 minutes, the heat pump starts producing warm or cold air.
