7 Benefits of a Heat Pump

benefits of a heat pump headerDid you know that over approx. 30% of Kiwi household now have a heat pump? Heat pumps (also known as air-conditioners) are continuing to grow in popularity as they offer a huge range of benefits compared to traditional heating methods such gas boilers, electric heaters, fireplaces, etc. In this blog post, we’ll discuss these benefits and why they are a great investment for Kiwi homeowners.

Energy Efficiency

One of the biggest benefits of heat pumps is their energy efficiency. They use electricity to transfer heat, which means they consume less energy than traditional heating systems. In fact, heat pumps can be up to 300% more efficient than electric heaters. This translates to lower electricity bills for homeowners over the long term and a reduced carbon footprint for the environment.

Heating and Cooling

Heat pumps are not just for heating your home during the winter months. Given almost all heat pumps sold in New Zealand are ‘reverse cycle’ they can also be used to cool your home in the summer. Additionally, all Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps come with a ‘dry’ mode which can help to reduce humidity without affecting room temperature.

Quiet Operation

Another advantage of heat pumps is their quiet operation. Unlike traditional heating systems, heat pumps utilise modern technologies in their components allowing them to operate silently. This means you can enjoy a warm and comfortable home without any distractions or disturbances.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps also have a ‘Silent Operation’ which helps reduce operation noise ever further. A number of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries heat pumps were also recently ranked by Consumer as the top performing heat pumps with regards to noise. You can learn more about these super quiet models here.


Heat pumps also come with a range of helpful timers that allow you to set the temperature and schedule when the heat pump turns on and off to suit your needs. This is especially useful if you want to warm up your home before you arrive home from work or if you want to turn off the heat pump during the night. As well as convenience, these timers also offer additional energy savings.

improve indoor air quality

As well as efficiency heating and cooling your home, heat pumps can also help to improve indoor air quality. All Mitsubishi Heavy Industries wall mounted heat pumps include ‘Clean Air Technology’ which is a combination of several specialised components, systems and functions that work in synchronization to help improve indoor air quality in your home.

Clean Air Technology does this by capturing and neutralising odours, allergens, mould, bacteria and viruses. You can learn more about ‘Clean Air Technology’ here.

Environmentally Friendly

Heat pumps can be considered environmentally friendly because they consume less energy and don’t produce any greenhouse gases – unlike traditional heating systems. This makes them a great choice for homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint.


Heat pumps are a great investment for homeowners because they are cost-effective in the long run. Although they may cost more upfront, they can save you money on your electricity bills and maintenance costs over time. Heat pumps also have a longer lifespan than traditional heating systems, which means you won’t have to replace them as often.


Heat pumps are a great investment for homeowners in New Zealand who want an energy-efficient, quiet, and environmentally friendly heating and cooling system. They offer many benefits, including energy efficiency, quiet operation, heating and cooling, improving indoor air quality, timers, environmental friendliness, and cost-effectiveness.
