Benefits of a Heat Pump

Heat pumps provide a great cost-effective, energy-efficient option for many homes in New Zealand. They provide both heating in winter and cooling in summer, and with the right system can be ducted throughout your home.

Types of Heat Pumps

There are a few heat pump options available for heating and cooling your home. The right system for you will depend on the type of house you have, how many rooms in your home, and your heating/cooling requirements.

More about Heat Pumps

Getting the right heat pump for your home is key to effectively heating and cooling your home. We encourage you to read a bit about the available options below and then give us a call to chat. We'll book a time to come and visit your home so we can suggest options that will best suit you.

High Wall Split Systems

High wall heat pumps are the most commonly known options in New Zealand. They consist of an indoor unit that is placed high on the wall in the area you’d like heated or cooled. They are coupled with an outdoor unit that sits on the outside of your home behind the indoor unit.

High Wall Split Systems

Multi-systems comprise of a single outdoor unit coupled to multiple indoor air handlers, connected by piping and wiring. The indoor air handlers can be high wall or floor mounted style, ducted or bulkhead.

These systems are ideal for office or homes which require either heating or cooling in each individual area.

Multi Systems are also useful if there is only limited space outside of the outdoor unit or to reduce the number required.

Floor Standing Split Systems

These split systems are installed either at floor level or mounted just above the floor or skirting board.  Some floor standing units can be recessed into a wall or fireplace.

Ducted Systems

The indoor unit of a ducted system is installed in either the roof space or under the floor or in a basement.  Air is then distributed throughout the house by insulated ducts connected to grilles and diffusers mounted either in the ceiling or floor.  Each ducted system needs to be specifically designed for its particular situation, correctly installed and balanced, which our engineers are qualified to do.

Cassette Systems

The indoor unit of a Cassette system is suspended in the ceiling space of the area requiring heating and cooling.  All that is exposed of this section of the installation will be the fascia panel, which encloses the return air grille and four-way adjustable diffusers mounted flush to the underside of the ceiling.

Bulkhead Ducted System

This heat pump is a small ducted type of unit, hidden in a bulkhead behind a custom-made supply grill on the front and a return grill fitted underneath, effectively a hidden version of a high wall split system.
