Heat Pumps

Heat Pump Installation Service

Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient forms of heating available in New Zealand. This is because heat pumps do not create heat; they simply move available heat from one place to another.

The more energy efficient a heating system is, the cheaper it is to run. While the initial investment in a heat pump may be larger than say, purchasing a gas heater, the long term savings on energy use are far greater

 

Key Benefits

How to choose a Heat Pump:

What type of system do you need?

HI Wall, Floor console, ceiling cassettes, ducted etc.

What Capacity do require?

This is an important part of the process. It is important you do not select a system that is too small and as equally important you do select a system that is too large in capacity. A general rule of thumb (indicative only) is 0.12kW/Square meter of a room.

This Calculation can be taken by one of our consultants at you home and he will be able to advise you on size you will need. There are important factors that he will take into consideration; How well your home is insulated, window size and orientation, room orientation, Stud height etc. Insulation and orientation are important considerations when it comes to potential heat loss; an older home with less insulation will lose indoor heat far quicker than a modern well insulated home. A larger heat pump system would be needed to overcome this heat loss.
