Heat Pump benefits go beyond just cost savings

As winter approaches, the need for a reliable, cost-effective and efficient heating solution is top of mind for many. Here at Greenside Energy Solutions, we're all about affordable solutions for Kiwi Families, so discover why we recommend using heat pumps.

Energy Efficient: 

Stuff reported heat pumps as the most energy-efficient form of heating in New Zealand, providing 3.5 to 4.5 kilowatts of energy out for every kilowatt of energy that goes in. 

Low Running Costs: 

According to Consumer NZ, heat pumps have the cheapest kW/h heating cost available. Electric heaters might seem economical due to their low purchase cost, but they are only good for heating small rooms for a short time. Electric bills stack up quickly if left running too long. 

Convenient Comfort: 

Heat pumps provide heating and cooling at the touch of a button. There is no need for chopping wood or moving around to heat spaces better. A heat pump will allow you to maintain a comfortable temperature inside your home regardless of the season. 

Improved Air Quality:

Heat pumps are perfect for those suffering from asthma and allergies; they regulate temperature, filter and dehumidify the air, helping to create a healthier home environment. 


Modern heat pumps operate quietly, ensuring that your home remains peaceful and undisturbed while enjoying the benefits of efficient heating and cooling.
