Just four weeks into winter, Christchurch managed to exceed the new air quality targets. Between the middle of May and late June, Christchurch recorded five high air pollution nights. Kaiapoi had six.
Christchurch’s target for the entire year was no more than three high air pollution nights. In 2020, that reduces to one.
The results are actually worse than last year – in 2016 Christchurch had five nights overall. So what can we do?
What’s The Problem With Air Pollution?
Environment Canterbury say the pollution gets particularly bad when our overnight temperatures plummet below zero.
How Can We Fix Air Pollution?
One argument against heat pumps is that many lose their ability to pump out heat when temperatures drop close to freezing. While it doesn’t matter how cold it gets, a fire will continue to burn so long as you have wood. This is where the Mitsubishi HyperCore heat pump is changing the game.
While ordinary heat pumps produce less heat when it’s below 7 degrees, the HyperCore heat pumps continues at full capacity right down to minus 15 degrees. You’ll get all the heat you paid for.
These low temperature performance heat pumps have been awarded the Energy Star Mark for superior energy efficiency, and they have superior air filtration. Find out more about them here.
