Winter is on its chilly way to Wellington homeowners, and with it comes the process of weighing the costs and benefits of a heat pump. A heat pump can be an efficient, cost effective means to heat (and cool) your home all year-round.

Here are some of the things you should keep in mind when considering heat pump installation for your home.

The difference between a heat pump and your average electrical heater is that the heat pump transfers heat rather than creating it. This function is ultimately more cost effective and efficient under certain climate conditions.

Each Wellington home is unique in its own way, and heat pumps are designed to accommodate this individuality. Heat pumps can be installed in a varied range of efficiency, sizes and setups to ensure you receive the perfect system to suit your home.

Additionally, you also have the added benefit of being able to program your heat pump. There is nothing more satisfying after a hard day’s work than coming home on a freezing cold night to a house that is pre-warmed and toasty; ready for you to rest and recover. Not to mention, you can also relax in regard to constant thermostat monitoring! Feel free to ask about having a programmable thermostat installed with your Wellington heatpumps.

Also, remember to discuss the best practices for operating your heatpump efficiently during the winter. You might find there is a little more to working a heatpump than the ‘on’ and ‘off’ buttons on your remote!

To make sure you give your heatpump a nice long lifespan, ensure you schedule a tune-up at least once a year to keep your heatpump pumping at optimum capacity. Heatpump servicing is certainly more affordable than full heatpump repairs!
