TYPES OF HEAT PUMP SYSTEMS
HIGH WALL HEAT PUMPS
High wall heat pumps are the most common type. They are the most cost effective to purchase and install, they sit just below the ceiling level so there is no need to re-arrange furniture to create wall space like you would for a need to for a gas heater.
They are designed to heat or cool a single rooms or area, but warm air can flow to other parts of the house if the heat pump left on for longer periods.
FLOOR MOUNTED HEAT PUMPS
Floor mounted heat pumps are more expensive than high wall heat pump, and contain most of the same features and modes as a high wall.
Floor consoles can be used is homes where a high wall will not work due to high windows. They are a great replacement for old gas heaters or electric heaters, and can sometimes offers more installation option as pipes can be run under the floor space in some homes
DUCTED HEAT PUMPS
Ducted heat pumps are designed to heat a whole hosue, or a large section of a house (3-4 rooms).
Usually the indoor unit is mounted in the ceiling space or under the floor, with a large inlet in a central area, and multiple outlets throughout the other rooms.
Ducted heat pumps are an extremely efficient central heating system.
