In places with moderate climates, such as Auckland, heat pumps are an excellent temperature control alternative to air conditioners and electric heaters since they are far more energy-efficient.
Let’s take a look at why heat pumps in Auckland are a great choice to make.
Advantages Of A Heat Pump
- Energy Efficient
A typical heat pump would use only about one-quarter of the electricity used in these other kinds of heating or cooling technologies because the only electricity required is for the compression and pumping of refrigerants in the system. The refrigerants in the system enable the heat pump to transfer heat from a heat source to a heat sink, thereby cooling the source and warming the sink.
This means that heat or cold is not being created but rather just transferred from one place to another. Moreover, the ability to reverse the cycle at any time makes it a truly versatile temperature control system.
- Long Lasting
Another advantage of heat pumps, aside from their versatility and energy efficiency, is their longevity. They generally require less maintenance than other temperature management systems and have long lifespans.
What Kind Of Heat Pump Do You Need?
Heat pumps are effective for heating or cooling the air in homes and businesses but are also widely used to heat water for swimming pools or household use.
- Air-To-Air Heat Pumps
The most common and inexpensive type of heat pump is an air-to-air heat pump. This kind of heat pump transfers warm air into a building while pumping the cold air out during winter. It can be reversed to do the opposite during summer to provide cooling indoors.
- Air-To-Water Heat Pumps
Air-to-water heat pumps transfer heat between air and water. These are typically used for heating water either in swimming pools or in geysers.
- Geothermal Heat Pumps
Geothermal heat pumps are the most costly and complicated to install but are probably the most effective. These involve heat sinks or piping loops being installed underground to pull heat from the ground during winter and dissipate heat during the summer.
You Get A Heat Pump Installed?
One of the downsides of heat pumps is that they can be a little complicated to install if you don’t know what you’re doing. For this reason, it is best to call on the experts to take care of it for you.
At Vartech Air, we can easily install various heat pump solutions for you, catered to your unique requirements. For example, we can offer common wall-mounted heat pumps, single- or multi-room heat pumps, ducted heat pumps that supply the whole building, among other variations.
Moreover, we can either help you design and install the heat pump system during the construction phase of a new building or retrofit it into an existing structure. We will analyse the architecture and layout of the building to ensure that the most effective solution is devised.
