Drip tray heater kit for Heat Pumps.
The kit contains a 70w heater wire which automatically turns on in cold weather (when the air temperature falls below around +3c)
The heater wire melts any ice which can form in the bottom of the heat pump to keep the drain holes unblocked and to prevent a build up of ice
It can be fitted to virtually any heat pump make or model.
These kits are supplied by Duratech for use in our pool/pond heat pumps, but can be used in virtually any heat pump make or model
This kit contains a low power electric heater element that sits in the bottom of the heat pump under the evaporator (the bit with the fins).
It can be required when the heat pumps are going to be operated at very cold temperatures – below 0c, for example on koi ponds, or for indoor pools.
Our genuine Duratech Dura+ heat pumps can continue to operate down to -15c, however the normal condensate water that drips from the evaporator coil can fall to the bottom of the heat pump and freeze causing an ice build up during long spells of very cold weather.
This kit includes all parts necessary to install the kit so that any ice that forms in the drip tray of the heat pump is melted into water.
The kit includes:-
- 70w heater element (running current is only 0.29A)
- temperature controlled switch – turns the heater wire on when the air temp falls below around +3c
- all necessary wires
- installation instructions
The temperature controlled switch automatically turns the heating element on in very cold weather and turns it off again when the temperature rises to provide a fully automatic system.
The heating element is powered from within the heat pump and therefore does not require a separate power supply.
Please see the installation manual for more information.
The price includes FREE UK delivery.
