Pre-provisioned fully inclusive bundle for Level 3 Heat Pump Monitoring.

The bundle includes everything required for high accuracy (1-2% MID approved) monitoring of all air-to-water ASHPs or water-to-water GSHPs.

The monitoring system is web-connected with remote data access available via emoncms.org, see example: Live Heat Pump Dashboard Example.

Data from this monitor can be optionally posted to heatpumpmonitor.org.

The bundle includes fully pre-provisioned hardware ready to install on-site, remote web-connected data access and remote support* if needed.  

Ideally the monitoring hardware would be installed during the installation of the heat pump, retrofitting is usually possible but will require draining down at least part of the system to fit the heat meter.

Choice of Heat Meter 

A heat meter calculates the heat energy delivered by the heat pump by measuring the flow rate and flow/return temperatures. A heat meter is essential for accurate COP measurement. 

All heat meters induce some degree of pressure drop which results in slightly increased pumping power. Larger heat meters have lower pressure drop, but are considerably more expensive. We have tried to recommend heat meters for various heat pump sizes, balancing pressure drop vs cost of the meter. Please do your own calculations to ensure the heat meter is suitable for your application. There is no harm in using a larger heat meter on a smaller heat pump, this will result in lower pressure drop. 

Our recommended heat meters have a maximum pressure drop of 0.5m, which is approximately equated to 4.5W of additional pumping power on an open-loop system. If using hydraulic separation (buffer or LLH) and multiple pumps then the increase in power will be significantly less. 

See our Heat Meter Pressure Drop Spreadsheet and our detailed guide Choosing the Correct Heat Meter for more info. 

Glycol: By default, these heat meters DO NOT support the use of glycol. If you're using glycol please contact us.

Electricity Meter(s)

To calculate COP we need to accurately monitor electrical input. It's important to monitor all the electrical power used by both the outdoor heat pump unit and any indoor pumps. Depending on how the circuits are configured this can require multiple meters. 

If the system is open-loop and the primary pump is located inside the outdoor unit e.g Vaillant, Midea, Panasonic, Grant or the indoor controller is back-fed from the outdoor unit e.g Mitsubishi then a single meter can be used. 

However, if the system has hydraulic separation and secondary pumps or the primary pump is located indoors e.g Samsung, NIBE then two meters are required. 

A third meter can be used to monitor any booster heaters. 

We use SDM120 MID approved meters with Modbus output, the meters must be installed inline on the AC circuits. 

Connectivity 

The emonHP datalogger requires an internet connection. It can be connected via Ethernet or WiFi. We highly recommend Ethernet connection for long term reliability. If Ethernet is not possible, WiFi can be used.

To ensure hassle-free installation please provide WiFi SSID & password, so the unit can be pre-provisioned to automatically connect

 *To enable us to offer remote support the emonHP has remote access enabled by default, this can be disabled on request.
