We’re having unpredictable weather across NZ at the moment and with rising energy costs, keeping your power bill down is important. A heat pump can help you do this as it’s one of the most energy efficient heating systems available.

To ensure you get the most out of your heat pump we’ve got some tips for you.

  1. Choose the right size heat pump for your home
  • A heat pump that is too small for your home will have to work harder to heat your space, which can reduce its energy efficiency. On the other hand, a heat pump that is too large for your home can also be inefficient, as it will cycle on and off frequently, wasting energy.
  • A qualified G-Force technician can help you determine the appropriate size of heat pump for your home based on factors such as the size of your home, the climate in your area, and your heating and cooling needs.
  1. Optimise the usage of your heat pump
  • Keep your heat pump at a temperature of around 19-21°C this winter and don’t keep switching it on and off. The heat pump will stabilise once it reaches it optimal temperature. And don’t just rely on your heat pump, make sure you have good insulation to keep your home comfortable.
  1. Maintain and service your heat pump regularly
  • When was the last time you checked your heat pump filters? Cleaning or replacing your filters helps your heat pump run more efficiently plus it prolongs its lifespan.
  • It’s recommended that you have your heat pump serviced by a qualified G-Force technician at least once a year to ensure optimal performance.

By following these tips, you can maximise the energy efficiency of your heat pump and enjoy lower energy bills and a more comfortable home.
