What’s the difference between heat pumps vs. air-conditioning?

Heat pumps are now extremely common in New Zealand homes. There has been a dramatic increase in heat pumps in New Zealand over the last 15 years.

Heat pumps and air conditioners are similar in a lot of ways. The only real difference is that heat pumps can provide heating and cooling when needed while an air conditioner can only cool.

Benefits of Heat Pumps

Benefits of Air Conditioners

  • Lower running costs and long-term savings on energy
  • Renews and improves air quality
  • Less maintenance than traditional heating systems
  • Constant pleasant room temperature
  • Provide cooling during summer
  • Long lifespan

Is heat pump installation expensive?

The cost of installing a heat pump depends on the size of your home, any ducting costs involved and the type of heat pump you are after.  Talk to our Registered Master electricians who would be happy to offer you a customised solution and quote.

What is the cost of installing air conditioning in my home?

The total cost of installation will depend on the type of unit and system you choose along with your home requirements. If you have a smaller home one unit can make the difference you need, whereas a larger home might need a central air conditioning system installed.

How long does it take to install a heat pump?

Our experienced residential electricians have the expertise required for a tidy installation which can take as little as three hours. More complex installations can stretch over a weekend depending on the type of heat pump and where it is being installed.

Can heat pump installation be done on my own?

Even though us Kiwis have DIY in our blood, there are a lot of factors to consider when installing a heat pump. The type of heat pump unit, installation area, materials involved and equipment all add to the overall cost.

Don’t try to cut costs by installing a heat pump that is too large or small for your home needs. At Grammar Electrical, all our electricians are experienced professionals who are equipped with the knowledge to conduct all heating installations efficiently and safely.

I am not looking to install a heat pump, I am after someone who can service my existing heat pump?

Just like your regular doctor’s visit, your heat pump needs to be checked once a year to make sure it is still running efficiently. Regular cleaning of heat pumps overlooks factors like electrical systems and mechanical operation of indoor and outdoor units. Grammar electricians make sure that your heat pump is running effectively to increase the life of your heat pump.

How long does a heat pump service take?

A comprehensive heat pump check can generally take up to an hour.

Is a heat pump system right for my home?

Not all homes might be suited for a heat pump system. Our electricians would be happy to assess your home and discuss more suitable options like home ventilation systems.

We provide free consultations and quotes. Get in touch with us to explore your heating options.

RECUR

We had an issue with our hot water system and some lights in the house not working. We called Grammar Electrical on Waitangi Day to lodge the job. Ant called us back within 10mins and notified us of the charges for the public holiday call out plus public holiday wages as per NZ employment law.

Knowing this isn’t a super urgent job, Ant guided me over the phone to help resolve the issue myself. He also booked the job for 7am Tuesday. He rang back and gave us another idea to help with the hot water system in the meantime.

Ant was awesome! Best service and knew his stuff. Thanks very much again Ant.

I booked a job with Grammar Electrical 1 week ahead of time which they said was no problem. They called the night before to confirm and the electrician would be coming and he turned up right on time. He did an amazing job and the job was done quicker and cheaper than indicated. Would recommend for friends and family

Did a fantastic job installing new lights on very short notice after our current fittings stopped working suddenly. Trevor and Aaron were really helpful to deal with despite it being only a small job. Thanks Grammar :-)

2 days before the wedding and the power keeps randomly tripping out. With out of town family members staying, and the bride living with us and her bridal party getting ready and leaving from our place on the big day, there was a lot at stake. Grammar Electical were busy but thankfully they bumped us up the list and came to see us the very next morning. Thus avoiding any wedding dramas. Thank you Grammar Electical!

I've only used these guys once but will definitely use them again. Turned up on time to quote, turned up on time to do the job, and when the job was simpler than quoted, reduced the charge accordingly. What more can you ask for? Thumbs up.

I can't recommend these guys highly enough - from the first phone call to the job being done could have been within a couple of hours if I had been ready (which I wasn't quite), but as it was - after booking the job at 3pm one day, it was finished before 8am the next by a lovely, polite young guy. Now that is fantastic service!
