In the last five years the price of electricity has increased by 50% and this has come at a time when alternative forms of heating are being legislated against by many councils. This has helped heat pumps gain favour as they work with up to 400% efficiency as opposed to the normal rate of 100% efficiency for most other ways of heating with electricity. This means a saving of about a third in the amount of electricity required. The reason why heat pumps are cheaper to run is because they do not heat the air but transfer heat from the air outside to the air in the house and they can do this even in very cold weather. The only power that is required to run heat pumps is for the fans and the compressor.

You can expect even small heat pumps to provide a lot of heat. 2300 watts is as much as you can get from a fan heater of the plugged in variety whereas the least powerful Fujitsu heat pumps can put out 3600 watts. Even these small models provide a lot more heat while costing a lot less to run.
Fujitsu Heat Pumps are easy and inexpensive to install. They can be installed in as little as six hours depending on how complicated the system you have chosen is. You can expect to pay between $2500 and $5000 per heat pump depending on the model and size. This normally includes installation and GST. It is important to make sure that you install the correct heat pump for your home and the area that you intend to heat.

Getting hold of an installer who is Fujitsu Accredited is step number one. He should be capable of advising you which heat pump will be best for you. You need to make sure that the system matches your unique needs as how efficiently the heat pump works depends on it. You may buy a smaller unit only to find that it is running constantly in cold weather and your electricity bills are much higher than expected.

Many councils now offer subsidies to homeowners who convert from dirty heating to the more environmentally friendly heat pumps. Ask you Fujitsu installer about how to apply for those funds. You may also be eligible for the installation of a heat pump to replace your chimney if it has been damaged in a recent earthquake. Once again ask your supplier of Fujitsu Heat Pumps about how to apply for this.

Fujitsu have brought out special software called EzeCalc which can calculate which size heat pump is needed to heat the area in question. The expertise and experience of the accredited installer combined with the software will ensure that you buy the heat pump system that is best suited to your unique needs.
