Heat pumps are the most energy efficient way to heat your home, at the touch of a button. It is important that the right system is selected as every home is different. The most common system installed in residential homes is a high-wall heat pump – this is designed to heat or cool individual rooms, or areas, depending on the size of the unit.
When looking to heat or cool multiple rooms with individual controls, a multi split system is commonly installed, allowing multiple indoor units to run off the one outdoor unit. Ducted systems are the ideal solution to heat and cool the entire house, with a unit that sits in the ceiling space, and distributes heated or cooled air through multiple vents.

Heat Pump FAQ
Will a heat pump heat my entire House?
The most common system installed in residential homes is a high-wall heat pump – this is designed to heat individual rooms, or areas, depending on the size of the unit. Multiple room systems can be run off the one outdoor unit, or if multiple rooms or the whole house is to be cooled, we recommend a ducted system, with a unit that sits in the ceiling space, and distributes heated or cooled air through multiple vents.
What size heat pump will I need for my home?
It depends on the size and shape of the room and house and placement of the unit. A larger unit isn’t always best, as it will be more expensive to run than a smaller system than would run more just as efficiently, and cheaper. Our team will advise and recommend the best size of unit based on your specific dimensions and needs.
