As we become increasingly concerned about the environment and how we impact it, we have started to look for more environmentally friendly ways to live our lives. One of the most important ways we can make a difference is by changing how we heat our homes, and this is where a heat pump comes in.

A heat pump is an excellent way to reduce your carbon footprint and to care for the planet more. However, it is more expensive to install than a boiler, which may leave you wondering if the initial outlay is worth it.

Here are some of the reasons it’s worth splashing the extra cash and also going through the slightly more involved installation process.

1) Energy-efficient

If you are considering a heat pump at all, you are most likely doing so for its environmental credentials. In this area, you won’t be disappointed. A heat pump produces far more energy than it uses and it also doesn’t use fossil fuels such as gas or oil. In fact, when paired with a clean electricity supplier, a heat pump can be completely carbon-neutral, giving you peace of mind. If you invest in a good brand, like a Mitsubishi heat pump in Auckland, then you know that thanks to leading technology your heat pump will be the best in its field at energy efficiency.

2) Cheaper to run

Although a heat pump requires a more significant upfront investment, it does lower your energy bills considerably. This means that although you have the initial outlay, you will recoup it back in time. If paired with cavity wall insulation and loft insulation then the drop can be quite dramatic, meaning that you are saving money and looking after the planet at the same time.

On top of these financial bonuses, you are also less at the mercy of fluctuating oil and gas prices.

3) Heat pumps can act in reverse

A heat pump is incredibly versatile. As well as being more efficient at heating hot water and your house than a traditional heating system, it can also be used in reverse.

If you’re in the middle of a scorching hot day, a heat pump can actually convert to operating as an air conditioning unit for your house, pumping cool air throughout instead of hot.

4) Heat pumps have longevity

A well-maintained heat pump system can last 20-30 years, if not more. This means that by providing you care for your heat pump correctly, it will outlast its more traditional rivals by many years. In that time you will save vast amounts of money and cut your carbon emissions by masses.

Although a heat pump is a bigger investment than its alternatives, there is no doubt that it can really pay back financially over time. It may also increase the price of your house the next time you go to sell or rent it.
