Why is a Heat Pump a Good Idea?

If you're looking for ways to cut your heating bill, consider that heating and cooling account for about half of your home energy use. Also, the easiest way to take a bite out of that part of your bill is with an energy-efficient heat pump.

A heat pump is the most efficient heating machine on the market. For every dollar of electricity you put into a heat pump, you get back $2 to $4 of heat. That's energy efficiency! Plus, a heat pump also acts as a central air conditioner in summer, giving you year-round comfort.

How much do heat pumps really save?

That varies by family, of course, but if you are using an electric heater, you should be able to save between one-half and one-third on your heating costs. You could switch to another fuel and lower your heating costs; however, you would not have the comfort of air conditioning during summer months.

How does a heat pump work?

Instead of making heat, a heat pump extracts it from the outside. Your refrigerator is a good example of a one-way heat pump. It removes heat from the air inside the refrigerator and moves it to the coils on the outside (back or bottom) of the refrigerator.

Have you ever felt the warm air that blows out from under your refrigerator when it's running? A heat pump uses this same principle-extracting heat from the air and moving it to where it's needed.

An air-to-air heat pump extracts heat from outside air. And amazingly, even in winter the air holds heat, even when the outside temperature gets down to zero degrees C.

Are heat pumps reliable?

Because they use the same process, they are about as reliable as a refrigerator. In a study of air-to-air heat pumps performed elsewhere, after 20 years more than half of the heat pumps were still in operation. Of these that had been removed, less than half were for mechanical failures. The rest were for other reasons such as changing to a newer, more efficient, or different size.

If I buy a heat pump, do I still need an air conditioner?

NO! One of the biggest advantages to a heat pump is that it becomes an air conditioner in summer. Instead of moving the heat inside, it reverses operation and collects the heat from inside the house and moves it outside. All you need to do is change the settings on your thermostat.

Don't miss out this summer by installing just an air conditioner. Install a heat pump for just a few hundred dollars more-then enjoy cooling this summer and efficient heating this winter.

Heat Pumps and Air Conditioning

Choosing the right heating and cooling solutions for your home is an important decision that needs careful consideration. The wrong choice could cost you more long term, and will not get the desired results!

We at Chillmax will help you through this process and our experts will guide you to choose the most cost effective and modern system for your project.

Heat pumps/air conditioners are split systems, most commonly consisting of an outdoor unit connected by copper piping and wiring to an indoor unit, which is installed in the area requiring heating and cooling. The outdoor unit, which is usually installed at ground level, but can be installed at height also, houses the compressor which extracts heat from the air. The indoor unit houses the fan assembly that circulates warm cool air around the area as required.

The most commonly installed in New Zealand are as follows:


We Recommend

Our experience in the air conditioning industry, we really do know heat pumps inside out. We also know that not all heat pumps are created equal. Many of the brands currently coming on to the market can’t cope with our cold days. Sadly it is not uncommon for us to hear from individuals who’ve bought a cheap heat pump and now bitterly regret it because it doesn’t work when the weather turns icy.

Our advice is: when you decide to invest in a heat pump, ensure it’s one that will repay you with years of reliable performance and comfort all year round. In our opinion, Daikin, Mitsubishi, Panasonic and Fujitsu are very good brands for your homes. Each of these brands has been proven locally and internationally, and as highly regarded manufacturers, these companies stand by their products. With these three top brands to choose from, we can find an effective solution to almost every heating or cooling need.

Daikin Information
