What type of Heat Pumps do you supply and install?
EnergySmart supply and install both Split and Multi Heat Pumps. A Split Heat Pump has one indoor unit and one outdoor unit. A Multi Heat Pump has multiple indoor units, to one outdoor unit.
Do Heat Pumps use a lot of electricity?
Heat Pumps are one of these most efficient forms of heating with the ability to provide 3-5kW of heat energy for every 1kW used. This means that Heat Pumps are heating at a rate of 3 – 5 time the energy input. Most Electric, or Gas Heaters are not able to achieve this level of efficiency and although they have a lower upfront cost, they end up being more expensive to run long term.

What is Defrost mode?
Defrost mode occurs when the outdoor temperature gets to near freezing and ice is beginning to form on the outdoor unit. The unit needs to begin defrosting to ensure that airflow continues. During this time your indoor unit may slow down or stop. It is important not to turn off or change the setting on your unit while this is happening, and the airflow will return once the defrost cycle is complete, this can take up to 20 minutes.
How do Heat Pumps work?
Heat Pumps work like a reverse refrigerator system. Heat Pumps do not actually ‘create’ heat like typical electric or gas heaters, they simply move available heat from one place to the other. The outdoor unit begins this process by absorbing heat energy from the surrounding area (even on cold days) and compresses it using a refrigerant as the transfer tool. This heat is then pumped through to the indoor unit where it is transferred inside, warming your home. In cooling mode, the opposite works. The indoor unit absorbs heat and transfers it to the outdoor unit where it is then rejected outside, resulting in the indoor air being cooled.
Can my Heat Pump be used as an Air Conditioner as well?
Yes, all Heat Pumps have heating and cooling modes meaning that your unit can be used all year round as a heating device, or as an air conditioner.
