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 on 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 it 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 heated or cooled, the size of the heat pump, it’s 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 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 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 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 that 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 catalogs. But primarily it is important to choose a reputable brand like Fujitsu which offers a long warranty on parts and labor. 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!
