Energy Efficient Heating for Cost Savings

When choosing your home heating solution, it is important to look at what will be most cost effective; not only in the short term, but during its long-term use.

Heat pumps are known to be one of the most efficient forms of heating available, and provide many features other heating options cannot, such as dehumidifying, air filtration and safety.

To ensure you get the best in energy and cost-savings, look for a heat pump that offers energy saving features such as energy-efficient refrigerant and low standby power.

Energy Efficient

Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient forms of heating available in New Zealand. This is because heat pumps do not create heat; they simply move available heat from one place to another. Heat pumps are so efficient that typically, 1kW of electrical energy you put in, your heat pump will produce around 4kW of heat energy out.

Lowest Running Costs

The more energy efficient a heating system is, the cheaper it is to run. While the initial investment in a heat pump may be larger than say, purchasing a gas heater, the long-term savings on energy use are far greater. The table below illustrates the cost savings that can be made in comparison to other heat sources. Compared to all other common forms of heating, a heat pump is the most energy efficient and cheapest heating system to run.
