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:
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.
Headquartered in Japan, Daikin has been combining research and development in the fields of mechanics, electronics and chemistry for nearly 80 years to produce air conditioning products that are practical, efficient, quiet and economical.
