Air Source Heat Pump Basement
When an individual brings a heat pump into their house, in 80% of cases it is an air/water heat pump. It's efficient and affordable. It's the perfect companion for rooftop solar panels and low-temperature heating in your home.
However, an air/water heat pump has a downside that dictates the best place to install it. The name says it all: there is water. Although the chance of a leak is low, it's better to be safe than sorry, and place the pump where the leak will cause the least damage. For example, in your cellar. Certainly not in your attic, as an attic leak can wreak havoc.
Noise disturbance from heat pump
For the same reason, it is best to place other heat pumps, such as water/water heat pumps, in the basement or ground floor. Also, the compressor in a water/water heat pump can make some noise. Well isolate the area. The compressor of the air/water heat pump is standing outside. Ideally, you should place it behind a corner so you don't hear a hum when you're in the garden.
Put a heat pump in the cellar
Your cellar is usually the best place to install a heat pump. The cellar is naturally well insulated, so there is hardly any noise disturbance in the living area. Also, any leaks will cause less damage than if the pump were in the attic and the water had a chance to seep into the ceiling and walls.
