Why You Need A Multi-room Heat Pump

As quickly as the sun set on our Auckland summer, the winter seemed to sink its frosty teeth into our mornings and evenings especially. This one has been a cold one and if you can’t grin (or grimace) and bear it for another year there are options at play for this winter to be the last unbearable one in your home. If you don’t yet have a heat pump in your house, it’s undoubtedly time to install a quality heat pump unit with our help and enjoy the benefits of the most efficient method of heating available.

Why now?

“Install a heat pump at the end of summer?”, we hear you ask. Heat pumps don’t just heat. They are equally adept at cooling your home as they are at heating it. So, as a two-in-one temperature control, now is as good a time as any to enquire with us about installing one.

What type of heat pump?

Well for small, single-story homes, an individual heat pump unit is a sufficient way to warm yourself daily. As for those of us with two-story homes or larger homes, it will be more beneficial to install a multi-room system for a number of reasons. 

  1. Heat your entire home: With a multi-room heat pump, you’ll have two or more points of warmth using ducts from the heat pump’s central system. This means you can simultaneously heat or cool two different areas, which will affect the entire home much quicker than a single unit.
  2. Different temperature zones: It can be hard to agree on a temperature, so why not set two different temperatures with either of your units? If one room is sun facing and one isn’t, having the ability to set different temperature zones is very beneficial.
  3. More efficient: Rather than overworking an undersized unit in an attempt to heat your whole home, it is much more efficient to have a multi-room heat pump. This won’t put as much strain on your heat pump and will also result in reduced energy bills by delegating the load.

How much does it cost?

Installing a multi-room heat pump is more expensive to install than a single unit but it is important to consider which style of heat pump is suited to your property. Whilst it might be more expensive to install, it could be cheaper to run than your current heat pump, especially with the world-leading brands we stock at Comfy Kiwi Homes. Furthermore, as we previously mentioned, heat pumps are the most efficient way to heat your home. Contact us today for a free quote and create a more comfortable home today.
