Heat Pumps Combat Hayfever
Many new homes built as part of the Christchurch Rebuild have fishbowl features: Large glass areas that in summer will cook you like an oven. This heat can spread through the house making it uncomfortably warm to sit inside. But if you open a window for some fresh air, the fearsome Canterbury Nor-Wester winds bring the dust and pollen and set off your allergies again.
Keep Cool In Summer
Did you know that pushing the snowflake symbol on your heat pump remote, turns your heat pump into an air conditioner? It reverses its heating cycle, removes the muggy, warm air from your home and replacing it with cool, fresh air from outside.
Good news for hay fever and asthma sufferers. While the cool air being pumped into your home is coming from outside, the filtration systems in new heat pumps remove most of the dust, pollen, and allergens in the air so you can breathe easy. In fact, Fujitsu Nocria heat pumps are recommended by the Asthma New Zealand Foundation for their high levels of air filtration.

The same filtration process also works when heat pumps are keeping you warm. By replacing the air in a room with fresh, deodorised, filtered air from outside, heat pumps can help remove unwanted odours, bacteria and germs, which slow the spread of sicknesses. It’s a great feature to have in winter.
While hay fever isn’t contagious, the same heat pump filtration system will remove the dust, pollen, and allergens that enter a room as people come and go, which will help prevent those hay-fevery itchy eyes, sore throats, and runny noses.
