Heat pumps are fast becoming New Zealand’s preferred method of home heating and cooling, but some still see a heat pump as a luxury item rather than an essential piece of equipment. Here are three situations where a heat pump is essential and how it will make a big difference to your life.
Getting the office temperature just right
A happy worker is a productive worker, and nothing puts people in less of a mood to work than being hot and sticky. A heat pump levels the playing field, making workers and staff comfortable and more productive – all year round.
On those cold winter mornings, a heat pump only takes a few minutes to heat a room. This allows everyone to take their coats off and get comfortable, ready to start the day’s work. But even worse than the cold winter mornings are those sweltering hot summer afternoons! An air-conditioned office can save a company thousands of dollars in man-hours, simply by being a comfortable work environment.
A heat pump is essential to protect children from allergies and asthma
For those with allergies such as hay fever, the summer months are particularly tough. A circulation of fresh, clean air in the room is essential, especially for children. Pollen and dust can sit heavy on a child’s chest, leading to the possibility of a more serious incident, such as an asthma attack.
Mitsubishi Electric’s FH heat pump series contain an advanced, multi-staged air filtration system. Called the Plasma Quad Filter System, this air filtration system layers an anti-allergy enzyme filter with an electrostatic plasma field.
This system effectively removes four major air pollutants; bacteria, viruses, allergens and dust.
The plasma filter is charged with an electrical field and acts as a micro mesh ‘curtain’ across the air inlet opening with 99% efficiency. This level of advanced filtration system is ideal for those suffering from asthma and other airborne allergies. If you have children in your home, a heat pump is essential and the best way to provide fresh, clean air and fight against air-borne pollutants.
Keep your pets safe and healthy
We all love our pets, and for many of us, they are the most important things in our lives. When out at work all day, it is crucial to make sure the environment at home is suitable for their health and safety. A heat pump is a great way to do that.
Staying warm is one thing, but one the biggest dangers for pets in the home is dehydration. Heat stroke on a hot summer’s day doesn’t just happen when dogs are left in cars. Remember, your pet is covered in fur, it doesn’t take much for them to start to heat up. It’s even easier if you have large windows in your home, allowing the sun to shine in all day.

A heat pump is essential when used as an air conditioner to keep your pet cool all day, even if you’re not there. Nearly all modern heat pumps have multi-function timers built in. This allows you to set the temperature of the room at certain times, or switch on for an hour at regular intervals. Many of the newer models are also Wi-Fi enabled. This means you can control the temperature from your smartphone, this gives you confidence knowing you will come home to a happy (and cool) pet.
