Heat pumps have grown in popularity in New Zealand in recent years as they’ve come to prove themselves the ideal solution to providing affordable and efficient comfort all year round.

Key Benefits of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient forms of heating available in New Zealand. They don’t waste energy creating the heat, they simply move it from one place to another and because they are so efficient, they are cheap to run. The heating spreads evenly and once your set temperature is reached, it will be maintained so you won’t need to spend your evening juggling settings or the right amount of wood on the fire.

One of the most popular features of a heat pump is the timer. You can easily program your heat pump to start up or turn off to suit you. No more bitterly cold early morning starts. Just set your heat pump to start before you get up.

Heat pumps can also be used for cooling and drying, drawing away excess moisture such as condensation and humidity. Importantly, they are also very safe for children since they have no flames or hot surfaces that can be touched.

How Heat Pumps Work

Heat pumps work by extracting heat from the air outside your home and transferring it indoors. They do not generate heat but use the same principle as your fridge, but in reverse. They compress gas in a system of pipes and then allow it to expand, extracting heat as it does. In this way, even if the air outside is freezing a heat pump can extract heat energy and bring it inside to keep you warm.
