Fair complaint. Did you know there’s a reason for that?
Heat Pumps Not Air Conditioners
So, when these air conditioners are shipped to New Zealand, we expect them to perform as our main heater where temperatures can regularly fall below 0 degrees overnight. The reason these ‘heat pumps’ fail is because they simply weren’t built to stand up to tough Canterbury frosts.
So what will keep you warm in the depths of a New Zealand winter? You want a unit that was first and foremost designed to be a heat pump, not an air conditioner. You want a heat pump specifically designed with New Zealand’s conditions in mind, not another country’s. Before you ask, yes, there is a solution.
The Home Mitsubishi Hypercore In Canterbury
During an average winter in Canterbury, how many nights would the temperature fall below zero? NIWA estimates Christchurch gets around 80 frosty days per year. That’s likely to be closer to 100 if you head inland towards Hanmer Springs or down south towards Timaru. Even sunny Nelson and Blenheim aren’t immune with 84 frosty days on average. That’s nearly 100 days of the year where your old heat pump may struggle to get started and heat your home effectively.
The advanced Hypercore technology means your heat pump’s performance problems are over. Even when it’s frosty or the temperature falls below zero, your Mitsubishi Hypercore heat pump will continue to heat your home to the best of its ability, with no drop in power. In fact, it will keep effectively heating your home right down to –15°C. While New Zealand may be no stranger to –2°C, or even –5°C, it’s incredibly rare for us to go as low as –15°C!
