HEAT PUMPS

The electric heat pump is a very energy efficient way to heat and cool your home. They use as little as one third the electricity to heat your home to the desired temperature, compared to standard electric heating. A heat pump, or reverse cycle air conditioner, extracts heat from the outside air and transfers it into the home. This process is reversed in summer to cool the home. They are the most energy efficient heaters to run and will add value to your home.

A heat pump is an operational, fixed, electric only, refrigerated air conditioner that is capable of both heating and cooling. Types include split system, ducted and window/wall units and there is no restriction on their capacity. It is not a portable unit, an evaporative cooling system or a gas system that has an add on refrigerated cooling system. Domestic customers who have an electric reverse cycle heat pump installed maybe eligible for off peak power rates which result in a substantial reduction in power cost per unit.
