About Heat Pumps
A heat pump that's correctly sized, installed and used can heat your home very cost-effectively. But to get the most out of a heat pump, it's really important to choose the right one and use it properly - here's how.
The ENERGY STAR mark is only awarded to the most efficient heat pumps on the market (for both heating and cooling modes). Choosing an ENERGY STAR heat pump could save you $150 a year on running costs, compared to a non-qualified model.
Better performance when the outside temperature
While heat pumps are the most efficient way of using electricity to heat your home, some are more efficient than others. Some heat pumps struggle to keep up between 5 and 0°C, when they are more prone to icing up. So if you live in a cooler climate, ask your supplier if the heat pump you're looking at meets the new ENERGY STAR specification.
Checklist for choosing a heat pump
As well as choosing an efficient model, here's some other important things to think about:
- Insulate first. Make sure your ceiling and underfloor insulation is sorted first - you'll be able to buy a smaller heat pump and your home will be cheaper to heat properly.
- Quality. Choose a quality brand from a reputable supplier that offers at least a five-year warranty on parts and labour.
- Sizing. Make sure it's sized correctly for the room you want to heat - if it's too small, it will have to work harder and cost you more to run.
- Climate. As the temperature drops, so does the performance of many heat pumps. If you live in a cold area, make sure the unit is sized using the manufacturer's information on how much heat it can deliver at the average outdoor winter temperature of the area in which you live. A good quality unit, sized and installed correctly, should perform effectively down to minus 15°C. Ask your heat pump supplier if you need your heat pump to perform at these temperatures.
- Environment. For example, in geothermal areas or coastal areas the heat pump needs to have suitable protection against corrosion - ask your supplier about environmental considerations in your area.
- Installation. Good installation is fundamental to how well a heat pump performs - make sure you choose an experienced installer.
