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.
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.
