Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a proven way to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Because temperatures vary widely between the seasons in New Zealand heat pumps are often the ideal solution to our heating and air-conditioning requirements.

Also known as air conditioning, heat pumps have many advantages over other forms of heating. Heat pumps work in the same way as your refrigerators. In winter, the heat transfer fluid (refrigerant) absorbs heat from the outside air transferring it into your home. In summer, indoor heat is absorbed and pumped out of the house thus keeping it cool. The heat transfer fluid (refrigerant) used is at such a low temperature it boils at minus 40 deg so that even on the coldest winter's day, heat is absorbed and transferred indoors.

Running costs are low since electricity is not used to produce heat only to drive a mechanical compressor (pump) indoor /outdoor and fans. In winter a heat pump produces up to three units (kw) of heat for every unit (kw) of electrical energy used. Heat pumps create a safe, healthy energy efficient and comfortable environment for your home and will pay for themselves in the long run. Most can be removed and taken with you if you decide to move home.

It's Important to choose the right size of Heat Pump. Like any large household appliance you need to choose the right type and, size of Heat Pump as they range from 2.3kW up to 10kW. One that is too small won't be effective and one that's too large will waste your money and household energy. Size depends on many factors: the area to be conditioned, the type of installation, the type of house you live in, your local climate and aspect or orientation of your house.
It’s important to have your units maintained regularly so once installed our preventative maintenance plans make sure your equipment performs at the optimum levels.

We can also service existing systems and offer an emergency breakdown service.
