Did you know it’s really easy to play our part in helping reduce the impacts of climate change? All we need to do is switch to energy-saving appliances, and a climate-friendly heat pump is just one of those climate-friendly appliances.
It’s no secret that energy consumption has grown dramatically over the past few years. The world’s demand for energy sources has created many negative impacts on the environment and exploitation of its natural resources.
How much energy do we really consume to keep our house warm?
We all know that heating is expensive. Not only is it expensive but the consumption of large amounts of energy directly impacts the environment. The majority of homes in New Zealand use gas, wood, or electricity to heat their homes.
One thing New Zealanders are proud of is our environment and sometimes we can be unsure of how we can contribute to reducing the impacts of climate change.
Not only are heat pumps climate-friendly and energy-efficient, but they can provide relief for your budget. If you have been considering how you can add more climate-friendly initiatives to your home, having a heat pump installed is certainly a way you can apply this idea.
Now is a perfect time, with the winter chill on the way to educate yourself on energy-efficient and climate-friendly heat pumps.
Energy efficiency and what that really means?
Buying energy-efficient heating systems is something everyone can do within their own homes to contribute to the reduction of pollutants and carbon emissions.
Energy efficiency in heating appliances is the reduced usage of electricity compared with the output of heat or cool air. It simply means getting more out of an appliance then you would an older model or a traditional heating system.
Not only do heat pumps keep you cosy during the winter chill through heating but they also create less need for you to use other energy-consuming appliances, such as dehumidifiers or air conditioning. Remember…heat pumps function as both cooling and heating systems. It’s a win-win situation, either way, you will be using less energy in your home.
Attention to using energy-saving heating is one way you can do your part to contribute to reducing negative impacts on the environment.
How you can help reduce impacts on the environment by choosing an energy-efficient heat pump
There are so many options to choose from, and choosing something that suits your home needs and your budget needs considering. Talking with experts is going to help you choose the right model of heat pump for your home to help you get the most out of your heating appliance.
By choosing heat pumps that are energy efficient means you are doing your part in reducing the impacts of climate change by,
- Using less electricity to operate the heat pump which means less use of the planet’s natural resources.
- Helping create less pollution, some energy sources like burning wood for heat can pollute the environment.
- Helping to reduce emissions from electricity plants which means less carbon dioxide in the air.
- Help to reduce the impact on animals and their natural habitats and ecosystems. By using less of the world’s natural resources means we don’t need to destroy habitats and ecosystems that animals depend on.
How to choose a climate-friendly heat pump
Talking to the right people from the very beginning with the right knowledge is going to be beneficial to you. It will help save you time and a whole lot of guesswork.
- Do your research.
- Check out the different energy ratings for different models.
- Check the sizes of the different models, you may not need the size you think you do and it will all depend on the size of the spaces you want to heat.
- Talk to the experts, anything you don’t understand or aren’t sure of, they can help!
Why having a climate-friendly heat pump is going to save you and the planet in the long run
The heating market has been flooded with so many options to heat your home. In the last few years, the cost of LPG gas and the cost to rent the cylinders has increased.
The cost of heat pumps has remained consistent and it’s still one of the cheapest and more efficient ways of heating your home.
There are many different models, sizes, and energy ratings to select and the options may seem overwhelming. While it may seem a sizeable initial investment to make, over the long term it will save you money. In the long term, an energy-efficient heat pump is going to save you big bucks over a power guzzling plug-in heater.
Using less electricity is undoubtedly going to have many benefits for the plant and even our local environment, here in New Zealand.
Heat pumps are climate-friendly heating sources that you should consider when deciding on heating for your home. Choosing a heat pump over other traditional heating systems is one way you can add a climate-friendly appliance to your home, and you won’t need to worry about the hefty power bill to run it.
Not only will they help you lessen the impact on the environment, stay warm during the upcoming winter months but also save you money.
