WHAT MAKES AN ENERGY STAR® DUCTED HEAT PUMPS BETTER?
Some ducted heat pumps struggle to perform between 0°C and 5°C, when they’re more prone to icing-up. A correctly sized and installed ENERGY STAR qualified ducted heat pump is tested to perform efficiently at 2°C.
They're energy efficient in both heating and cooling modes.
Because they’re more efficient, an ENERGY STAR ducted heat pump system typically saves around $80 a year on running costs compared to non-qualified models.
HOT TIPS FOR DUCTED HEAT PUMPS
Get your insulation, curtains and draft-proofing sorted first, your home will be easier and cheaper to heat.

Good installation is fundamental to how well a ducted heat pump performs – make sure you choose an experienced installer.

ENERGY STAR products offer the same great performance and features, but their running costs are lower: good for your wallet and good for the environment.
