Stay Cosy this Winter with a New Heat Pump

Residential properties house families who wish for a warm and cosy environment during winter. If the environment isn’t comfortable, health and happiness can suffer as a result. As winter approaches New Zealand and the cold days set in, if your property’s heating system is not up to the task, it might be time to consider installing a new heat pump. Benefit from reliable and efficient heating, even in the coldest weather. 

A heat pump is a device that can extract heat from the air or ground outside your property and use it to heat your home. This means that a heat pump can provide efficient heating, even when temperatures drop below freezing.


 What to Consider When Investing in a Heat Pump

When it comes to keeping cosy with a heat pump, there are a few things to consider. 

Set the thermostat at the right temperature: One of the easiest ways to stay cosy in winter with a heat pump is to set the thermostat at the right temperature. A comfortable temperature range is around 22°C for most people. If you set the temperature too low, you’ll be too cold, and if you set it too high, you’ll waste energy and money.


  1. Use a programmable thermostat: A programmable thermostat can help you save energy and stay cosy by automatically adjusting the temperature to your preferred settings at different times of the day. For example, you can program it to lower the temperature when you’re not at home or sleeping, and then raise it again before you wake up or come home.
  2. Keep the air filter clean: A dirty air filter can reduce the efficiency of your heat pump and make it harder to keep your home warm. Make sure to clean or replace the air filter regularly to ensure your heat pump is operating at peak performance. Get in touch with Fonko to find out more about booking a service for your heat pump.
  3. Use ceiling fans: Heat rises, so if you have high ceilings, you might find that the heat pump is warming the top of the room more effectively than the lower areas. In this case, using ceiling fans can help circulate the warm air throughout the room and keep you feeling cosy.
  4. Insulate your home: Good insulation is important for keeping warm air inside and cold air outside. Check for drafts around windows and doors, and add weatherstripping or caulking as needed. You might also consider adding extra insulation in your attic or walls to help retain heat and reduce your heating costs.
