Heat pumps save you money
The energy efficiency of a heat pump and its ability to cope with your local climate can make hundreds of dollars difference.
Energywise has an online calculator that estimates if you use a heat pump for 6 hours per day for 6 months of the year with an energy output of 6KwH it will cost around $400 per year to run (based on a 5-star energy rating).
If you use a heat pump instead of an electric heater in your living space can save you around $500 a year!
A heat pump with a high energy star rating saves you more
“Heat pumps are the most efficient way of using electricity to heat your home, but some are much more efficient than others. Look for the Energy Rating Label – the more stars, the more energy-efficient.” Energywise
The Energy Star rating helps to demonstrate your heat pump’s efficiency. The lowest energy-efficient heat pumps available in New Zealand are 250% efficient (they give $2.50 heat for every $1 of electricity used). The most efficient models on the market are over 500% efficient.
ENERGY STAR® qualified heat pumps use up to 30% less energy compared to a non-qualified model. They may cost more upfront to purchase, but it could save you up to $150 each year on running costs which will ensure you get the best return for your investment.
