Heat Pump Sales and Installation

Heatpump InstallationWith the '4 seasons in one day' weather patterns of Dunedin and the surrounding areas, it's nice to be able to control the temperature you're living in. Our electricians have extensive experience performing installations and maintenance on heat pumps. To get the most out of your heat pump, our electricians will visually inspect the room it is to be installed in. This is to determine what size heat pump is required to heat or cool the area, and where it should be placed for maximum efficiency. Aesthetics will always be taken into account when installing both the external and internal units.

We are also available for the regular serving of your heat pump. If its not kept clean its performance will be severely restricted.
