A change of season brings a change of temperature. Heck, sometimes we get four seasons in one day here in Auckland! These unpredictable and ever-changing weather conditions can affect a number of things including our mood. The human body isn’t a fan of change and for that reason, softening the curve of the temperatures in your home should be a priority, rather than constantly flipping from one extreme to another.
Heat pumps provide temperature stability when the outside temperature changes from hot to cold and back again. Let’s take a look at how heat pumps provide you with optimal comfort as you transition from season to season. It is a common misconception that you will have to change the temperature of the heat pump up and down if the outside temperature is unstable. Perhaps this was the case in the very early stages of the creation of heat pumps, but technology soon overcame this factor.
While it is difficult to dress appropriately for the different temperatures you will experience throughout the day, at least we can maintain one comfortable temperature inside. Good modern heat pumps have automatic settings. This automation means that no matter the outside temperature, your home will maintain the same level of comfort that you have chosen.
How does it work?
The working principle of the heat pump is to absorb the available heat from the outdoor unit and pump it into the room. In the automatic mode, the heat pump will sense changes in outdoor temperature and will draw more or less heat from the outdoor unit to keep the indoor temperature constant, whether hot or cold as heat pumps can heat and cool accordingly. Outdated heating systems take a long time to adapt to temperature changes and require manual intervention. But with an automatic heat pump, the recognition speed is very fast, and you will not be smarter when it suddenly becomes very cold outside. This means the seasonal weather changes won’t affect the inside of your home.
Automatic settings are ideal for families so no one has to argue over the temperature ever again. Throughout New Zealand, each location has an altered climate. Auckland is as temperamental as it gets with our subtropical climate.
As summer kicks in, we will receive more and more sunshine, but cold blasts can suddenly appear with heavy downpours at any time. Get ready for the unpredictable weather with your new heat pump. Whether the model is high wall, floor console, air duct, or a combination of both, heat pumps are the best solution to keep you comfortable indoors while outside looks a little crazy. It’s time to start thinking about how to stay cool in the impending summer heat.
