A bit of guidance please. Our newly installed 7kW aroTHERM+ ASHP has started to kick in the heating cycle over the past few cooler mornings.
I’m trying to understand the programme controls. I’ve added time slot controls to the sensoAPP. However, they don’t appear to control the heat pump. There’s no other 3rd party controls, just weather compensation. Is it simply that weather comp is in control and overriding any slots in the sensoAPP. I’m thinking the answer is yes, but just wanted confirmation / clarification.
Yes that makes perfect sense. I think I was trying to run before I could walk in terms of optimising system efficiency. I’ve increased the set back temp to 19ºC and the desired temp to 20ºC to let the system run and get some solid data to review.
In some respects I’ll be glad when the heating season kicks in properly as this shoulder period between Summer/Autumn and warm/cold makes it more difficult for a newbie to see what’s going on. There’s additional variables which can stop/start the heat pump. With time I will get to know how it works and what to look for.
I had 2 more AAVs fitted this week on the primary flow and returns. Note to self: must clip off those cable ties tags). I’m bleeding some air out of a few rads each day which is encouraging to hear/see.
