Whether you are in the market for a car, a new outfit, a TV or even a holiday (remember those?) we always want the best that we can afford, right? Well why would choosing a heat pump be any different?

As we approach the warmer months and with many of us spending more time at home, you might be thinking about how you are going to stay cool and comfortable this summer while also staying nice and warm next winter. Obviously, a heat pump is a great choice but with so many different brands out there, how do you know which one to choose? To help, we thought we have put together a quick list of reasons why we (humbly of course) think you should consider Mitsubishi Heavy Industries!

The people’s choice of heat pump

In their latest 2023 People’s Choice Awards, independent consumer advocacy group Consumer has named Mitsubishi Heavy Industries as The People’s Choice of heat pumps!

Scoring a huge 94% for reliability and 94% for total customer satisfaction, we’re proud to have beaten other brands and take out the 2023 People’s Choice Award for the heat pump category.

The awards are based on Consumer’s audience surveys, which ask heat pump owners a number of different questions relating to their experience with their heat pump. This includes its performance, reliability, cost to purchase, their overall satisfaction and whether or not they would purchase the same heat pump brand again.

most CONSUMER RECOMMENDED products of any heat pump brand

In their latest 2023 review, leading consumer advocacy group Consumer has recommended a total of 20 Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps, including 8 split systems from our Avanti®, Avanti PLUS® and Bronte® Series of high-wall mounted heat pumps.

These latest recommendations make Mitsubishi Heavy Industries the most recommended heat pump brand of 2023!

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps fared exceptionally well across all size categories with recommendations across small, medium and large capacities. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries were proud to have 5 products included in the top 10 for overall scores as well as having the top 6 top performing heat pumps for outdoor noise levels.

clean air technology

As we’ve covered in previous articles, the air quality in your home can have a huge impact on your overall health which is why we think our Clean Air Technology is a real winner.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Clean Air Technology is a combination of several different specialised components and functions incorporated into our split systems that are designed to work in synchronisation to help improve indoor air quality.

Allergen Clear and Deodorising filters capture airborne allergens such as pollen, dust, fine smoke particles and other irritants. The Allergen Clear Operation then works to deactivate any odour causing bacteria, as well as mould and viruses. The enzyme urea compound contained within Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Allergen Clear Filter is also effective in the deactivation of SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-194

Finally, a specially treated, anti-microbial fan also helps to inhibit the growth of mould within the unit. Lastly, the Self Clean Operation helps to clean and dry all internal components to help deliver clean and odour free air!

Perfect for asthma and allergy sufferers, Clean Air Technology is included in our AvantiAvanti PLUS and Bronte series of split system air conditioners. Visit our blog to learn more about Clean Air Technology and how it can help improve air quality in your home


An energy efficient heat pump will use less electricity to achieve the same outcomes as a non-energy efficient heat pump. Less electricity means less running costs. It’s as simple as that!

Improvements in the internal design, in combination with the use of R32 refrigerant, means our split systems, including our AvantiAvanti PLUS and Bronte series are some of the most energy efficient on the market. While the Avanti series and Bronte series do deliver great energy ratings, the Avanti PLUS is the real star.

Considered our Platinum Series of split systems, the Avanti PLUS achieves some seriously impressive energy ratings. The 2.0kW model is currently the most energy efficient heat pump in New Zealand. With an industry leading 7 Star “Super-Efficiency’ rating for both heating and cooling the Avanti PLUS will be sure to keep your running costs down.

reliability and performance

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps are designed and built to perform in the tough Kiwi climate. Whether it’s a split system or a ducted system, our heat pumps will keep you comfortable no matter what the climate.

Our heat pumps have a wide operating range, giving them the ability to function in heating mode at -15ºC all the way up to 46ºC in cooling mode, making them the perfect solution for all year round.

According to Consumer in their 2020 annual review, the Bronte series of split system heat pumps, were the top performers when it comes to performance in low temperatures. The 7.1 Bronte model (SRK71ZRA-W) coming out on top by scoring 87% for low temp performance making it the best performing heat pump in colder temperatures.
