How does a central heating pump work?
It is critical for responsible homeowners to understand their central heating system.
The heating pump only does one thing: it circulates hot water throughout your central heating system. The way it works is similar to how the heart in a human body works: water comes into the pump and then the pump forces it out at high speed; the water runs through the whole heating system to keep your house warm. Because some water in the system cools down, is forced back to the pump to be reheated and run through the heating system again.
How set the speed on your Grundfos central heating pump
The Grundfos central heating pump has different speed settings. The setting you need is determined by the size of your home and the number of radiators. The slowest setting is appropriate for homes with fewer than ten radiators. This setting is recommended because it is the most efficient and energy-saving. If this is too slow for your system, the water will cool too much before returning to the boiler, increasing the boiler burn time and heating time. The fastest speed is designed for large homes. It is not recommended unless absolutely necessary because it is less efficient and can cause failure due to excess pressure in the system.
What are the most common issues of a Grundfos heating pump?
While most boilers installed today use Grundfos pumps because they are both inexpensive and reliable. These can be unreliable at times and should be replaced. But Grundfos pumps typically last 15-20 years before needing replacement or repair. If your central heating pump isn’t working properly, locate the unit and make sure it’s turned on. If it isn’t running, you’ll need to have someone service it. It could be a clogged valve or something else minor, in which case a knock will get it going again.
