Panasonic Heat Pumps - Q & A26th April 2011     By: Panasonic Media

With winter snapping at our heels here in New Zealand, its that time of the year when we often see home owners starting to think about how they are going to keep warm over the upcoming winter months. With this in mind, one of our Product Managers from the Home Appliance team has answered some of the most common questions we get asked about Heat Pumps. See the video below for more information


Heat pumps are literally air conditioners that "pump heat", be it from outside into your home to warm you in winter or the opposite direction in summer.

And they're intelligent too. As soon as an inverter air conditioner is switched on, it provides the exact amount of power needed to rapidly cool or heat of the room. This enables it to reach the set temperature in about a quarter the time required by non-inverter models.

What Panasonic offers over-and-above competitors is ease of use. Once a qualified Panasonic heat pump installer has set you up, using it is simple. And the Dual Timer function means the heat pump is only on when it needs to be, saving you money and also helping the environment.

Speaking about money and the environment, it pays to ensure you set the right temperature. 18-22ºC is recommended as a comfortable working temperature, and if required, 16ºC overnight. You should also shut doors, windows and curtains.
