Choosing the Right Heat Pump For Your Home

With lower energy usage than gas heating, heat pump Auckland are a popular way of keeping NZ homes temperature-controlled. However, there are many models available on the market and choosing one that is right for your home can be confusing.

Choose a local Auckland company that specialises in heat pump installation. This will ensure you get a system that is tailored to your home and family’s needs.

Ducted Air Conditioning

A ducted air conditioning system funnels cool air to multiple rooms in your property via a series of ducts. They are an ideal solution for a range of properties, especially those with valuable or expensive furniture that could be damaged by humidity. Ducted systems are often more cost-effective than a split system heat pump because they operate at a higher energy efficiency.

They work in a similar way to split system conditioners, with an indoor central unit that connects to a network of ducting. Cool air is pushed to the room through vents in the ceiling or floor, and you can control the temperature in each zone from one easy-to-use remote.

Carrier Australia’s ducted air conditioning units have a sleek, low profile design that will blend into your interior. This makes them perfect for homes and office buildings with minimal space in the roof or walls. They are also much quieter than a split system heat pump, making them ideal for those with sensitive hearing.

Hot Water Heat Pumps

Hot water heat pumps use the same air-to-water technology as ducted heating, saving energy and reducing power bills. They’re especially effective in new homes, as they can be installed as part of the build process. They are the most efficient way to heat your home’s water and a great alternative to gas.

They can also be paired with woodburners for additional fuel efficiency and security of energy supply. These are most useful in areas with a long heating season and a reliable wood supply, where they can help reduce power consumption from the grid by using surplus energy.

Heat Pump City offer Fujitsu models that are tried and tested in NZ, plus a range of other brands. Their experts take the time to assess a homeowner’s home and family needs, and then design a tailor-made system for them. They can also work with a project manager on new builds to get all the ducting, pipes and heat pump units in place as the building process progresses – which means you can move into a warm house straight away.

Split System Air Conditioning

Unlike ducted heat pumps, which have an outdoor unit and pipes running through your home to deliver air into rooms, split system heating systems are smaller. They have an indoor unit that is mounted on a wall and come in a variety of designs. They are stylish and energy efficient, and they offer a range of heating capacities.

Portable Air Conditioning

Using the energy from the air around them, heat pumps are one of the most environmentally friendly and efficient forms of heating and cooling in New Zealand. They keep a room comfortable all year round and also remove moisture from the atmosphere, making them ideal for allergy sufferers.

A ductless split system consists of an outdoor unit and indoor units connected by a wireless communication link that connects directly to your power supply. This means there are no ducts which makes them a great choice for large homes and commercial applications with multiple rooms.

Daikin heat pump systems have earned some of the best overall ratings in 2021 and earlier with their standard series gaining top 5-Star ratings for Value for Money and Functionality.
