What heat pump is right for me?
If you are looking for a heat pump to heat and air condition (cooling in summer), but don’t know where to start, we will help you find the best energy efficient heating and cooling solution for your home. Every home is as individual as its owner.
Choosing the wrong size for the room you need to heat can leave you cold and cost you more in power consumption.
The capacity and type of the air conditioning/heat pump that suits your situation best depends on many factors. The most important one is the area of the room, but also factors such as height of the room, location of the room towards the sun and glass area are important.
Insulation and building orientation are important considerations when it comes to potential heat loss. For example; an older home with less insulation will lose indoor heat far quicker than a modern well insulated home. A bigger heat pump system would therefore be needed to overcome this heat loss.
Because of the technical nature of correct sizing, Varcoe Air Conditioning and Heat Pumps is more than happy to meet you on site or advise you from your plans on your best heating or cooling solution.

Types of Heat Pumps
Whether you want to add a heat pump to an existing room, or if you are renovating or building a new home, we can design and install the perfect heat pump solution to provide heating and air conditioning for you, all year round
Single Room Heat Pumps
If you are looking to heat or air condition (cooling in summer) just one room then a single room heat pump system is right for you. High wall heat pumps are very popular for bedrooms and living rooms and floor console models are ideal for replacing fireplaces in living rooms.
A multi room heat pump system can heat or air condition multiple rooms in a house. Because it offers individual room temperature control, it is the ultimate in total home comfort. It also offers significant space saving outside, as this heat pump system only requires one outdoor compressor to connect up to 6 individual indoor heat pump units.
Custom designed energy efficient ducted heat pump systems are the ideal whole home heating and air conditioning solution that provides one constant temperature throughout the home. Whisper quiet and discreet, ducted heating systems are ideal for new built homes and commercial spaces. We have extensive experience designing, installing, and servicing ducted heat pump systems in the Auckland region.
A Heat Pump is also an Air Conditioner providing cooling comfort in summer!
A heat pump not only provides super energy efficient heating in winter, it also provides cooling comfort ideal for those hot humid summer nights.
A heat pump has the ability to work backwards due to “reverse cycle” Technology. In addition to extracting heat energy from outside and bringing this in to your home, your heat pump also has the ability to extract heat from your home and transfer this outside (in the same way a fridge works). The term “air conditioning” is more commonly used for the cooling function of your heat pump.
Heating, cooling and also air filtration for year round comfort!
A heat pump not only heats or air conditions (cooling in summer) a home. Heat pumps with advanced filtration systems can also filter and clean the air from common allergens, dust and smells making them ideal for asthma and allergy sufferers.
Control your heat pump from anywhere with Wi-Fi Heat Pump Control
Wi-Fi heat Pump control will change the way you think about heat pumps. Wi-Fi Heat Pump Control gives you the freedom to manage your heat pump(s) through your smart phone, tablet or online account, no matter where you are. On the way home, running late, coming home early, or even when you’re in a different country, Wi-Fi Control enables you to pre-heat or cool your room before you arrive home. Now you’ll always arrive home to total comfort regardless of what New Zealand’s unpredictable weather is doing outside!

We wanted two heat pumps for our little new build. After much research we found Varcoe. They answered queries promptly and their online reviews were good.
On the day of the installation the two Varcoe engineers were just fantastic. Before starting work, they talked us through their plans and addressed our questions. The engineers were very professional. They worked cleanly and efficiently. I am really pleased with the finished product and would recommend Varcoe to anyone thinking of having heat pumps installed.
Could not have been more impressed from first phone call booking the service through to a very professional tradesperson turning up promptly, diagnosing the problem, going out on to the roof in the rain, keeping me informed the whole time and completing the job leaving everything nice and tidy.
We love dealing with Varcoe in Papakura. The team are quick and I was suprised at how resonable the bill was. They serviced our air con unit and all it needed was a clean. No trying to up sell or add ons. Just did what was required and said our unit was in excellent working order. Been using them for several years now and trust the workmanship. Trusted Mitsubishi Electric dealer. Thanks Varcoe
Albert’s Hair Salon
Thank you very much to the fantastic team at Varcoe Refrigeration for going above and beyond in helping us to get the Salon back up and running after our refurbishment during the Christmas break. My team and clients alike are very impressed with the overhaul you gave our heat pumps and are enjoying a much cooler salon.
Just to say a massive thanks to the crew that came & installed 3 new units at Archibald & Associates today. What a great bunch of guys that did an awesome job in the wet weather – very professional, friendy & knowledgeable about their product…..no mess & very polite!! Highly recommended.
Thanks for the prompt, great service. It made my mother very happy, which in turn made me the same.
We are delighted with our heat pumps and would like to complement you on your staff. Very professional, and pleasant to have in the house. We will definitely recommend your business.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my satisfaction with a job well done.
Your installation guys did a thoroughly professional and very tidy job and I was most impressed. Many thanks.

This is a quick note to say how pleased we are with our floor mounted Panasonic Heat Pump. I’m loving the fact that it is heating our kitchen/ dining room at the touch of a button and we are also feeling the flow on heat down to our family room.
The service we have had from you and your team has been exceptional right from the beginning. The two chaps that came to install our heat pump were professional, courteous and patient as I had a slight moment of indecision as to it’s ultimate location!
We will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family.
Tegan & Beau
From start to finish it was the best experience dealing with the team from Varcoe. John was extremely prompt and thorough with all communication. Something many other businesses had failed to do when we were looking. The guys that did the installation worked so hard all day/evening and were all so professional & friendly. Having the unit has made the world of difference to our business!
Thank you Varcoe, it was an absolute pleasure and extremely refreshing to deal with such a great business.
Helen & Rob Ferguson
Just a quick note to let you know how delighted we are with our heat pump – it’s keeping us toasty on these cold evenings.
We also want you to know that we have high praise for the service we’ve received from when you first came to see us, and the promptness of that, to the pleasant, efficient, helpful young chaps who did the installation neatly and efficiently.
Thanks so much. It’s a long time since we’ve had such a satisfactory service.
Varcoe have been looking after us for a few years now. They are very customer focused and responsive, starting with coming out to fit a couple of heat pumps at very short notice a week before Christmas for us! They also did a great job on a cutout of a new house for my parents. We continue to use them for ongoing regular maintenance of the units and are very happy with their work.
Lorna & George Hirst
Just a note to say thanks to you and your two fine young men who installed our heat pump last week. They did a fantastic job.
Julie & Peter Windram
