How To Choose The Right Heat Pump

Here’s some advice from Fujitsu Heat Pumps (Fujitsu General) on how to choose the right heat pump for your home or office space in New Zealand.

Here’s a Written Summary of How to Choose the Right Heat Pump in New Zealand –

We all know that heat pumps are one of New Zealand’s most efficient and convenient forms of heating, but they are a major purchase, and it’s therefore important to get them right the first time.

The five steps to choosing a heat pump include the type of heat pump for your needs, the area of your home you want to be heated or cooled, the size of the heat pump, its heating and cooling capacity, finding an accredited installer for a heat pump, and finally considering what extra features you might want for your heat pump or air conditioning system. Let’s look at these steps more closely now.

STEP 1 Choosing the type of Fujitsu heat pump

Start by browsing what types of heat pumps are available in the market. There are a lot of different styles, and the popular ones include high-wall heat pumps, floor consoles, ceiling cassettes and even whole home ducted central heating systems. Most people prefer compact models that don’t intrude on the style of their home.

Step 2 – Decide which area of your home you want heated

If you have large areas to heat, you might need more than one unit or higher capacity models. It is important that you don’t skimp on getting the right capacity for the area you need to be heated or cooled. Because it will pay off by delivering the heat you need and be more economical, too.

Step 3 – Make sure you will get the right size Fujitsu heat pump

This is probably the single most important step in choosing a heat pump. If the heat pump is too small for the area, it may be a little cheaper to buy in the short term. But it will cost much more to run as it will be working too hard because there are so many factors in determining the right size for your needs, not just the size of the room. It is important to ask a professional heat pump installer to choose the right capacity for your own unique circumstances.

Step 4 – Choose an accredited Fujitsu heat pump installer

The next step is to obtain advice and quotes for a heat pump. But please make sure you use an accredited consultant. These are independent professionals who have demonstrated that they have the equipment, training and expertise to install your new heat pump for optimum efficiency and effectiveness.

Step 5 – Consider any extra features you may want

Many products have extra features such as healthy air filters, human sensors, seven-day timers, wi-fi control and more. So you’ll want to check out the options either with a heat pump specialist. Or by looking through websites and catalogues. But primarily, it is important to choose a reputable brand like Fujitsu. Which offers a long warranty on parts and labour. Follow these steps when choosing a heat pump, and you’ll find the one that suits you best. You’ll be enjoying your new level of home comfort for many years to come!
