We have worked with Standards New Zealand to develop a free Publicly Available Specification (PAS) for high temperature heat pumps.

The guidance provides best practice advice and information on efficient, low-emissions high temperature heat pumps for residential, commercial and industrial use.

The PAS was updated in 2024 to include the latest developments in the technology and expand the scope of the advice.  

Applications covered include:

  • Residential water heating
  • Commercial-scale potable water heating, space heating, pool heating and fresh-air tempering
  • Industrial process heat

The revised PAS also includes improved installation recommendations, and updated advice on low global warming potential (GWP) refrigerants. 

The standard (SNZ PAS 5210:2024) is free to download from Standards New Zealand.
