Beware Cowboy Installers
There are plenty of companies around Christchurch who will install your heat pump, but not all heat pump installers are equal!
The difficulty is spotting the genuine heat pump installers and separating them from the cowboys.
While price is a motivating factor for most of us, choosing the cheapest heat pump quote up-front will usually cost you a lot more down the line.
With that in mind, tell those cowboys to keep moving! Here are Heat Pumps NOW’s top tips for choosing a genuine heat pump installer.
Check Heat Pump Accreditation
If there’s any doubt, ask to see the heat pump installer’s accreditation. They should have an official card they can show you. Or you can check the heat pump manufacturer’s website to see if that company is listed. It’s a simple check that can make a big difference.
If your heat pump is installed by someone with no accreditation, it could void the warranty. That means if there is an issue with your heat pump and it needs fixing, that money has to come out of your own pocket instead of the manufacturers!
Heat Pumps NOW are proudly Mitsubishi and Fujitsu accredited installers, and can install all makes and models of heat pumps.
Are They Established?
These are all pretty good indicators that the heat pump installer you’re choosing is not a cowboy, and is well-established in the industry. None of those things is a sign that cowboy heat pump installer could up and leave at any time. That could leave you seriously out of pocket if you have paid up-front or there’s an issue with the installation.
