1. Gree Hansol Hi-Wall Inverter Heat Pump
Power Saving Technology
GREE’s new G10 Inverters offer a breakthrough in the area of energy saving technology. The G10 heat pumps offer precise control giving unceasing operation and accurate temperature stability. By operating over a wider frequency the compressor is less stressed giving superior reliability while offering lower noise levels. The G10 inverters have automatic voltage adaption over a range of 150 to 260V. This improves stability and offers greater electrical protection to the compressor. Coupled with High Speed DSP chips, UHF Flux weakening controls, power factor correction technology and computer simulation the G10 low frequency torque control technology further enhances the energy efficiency of inverter heat pumps.
Often noise levels are quoted for the smallest model on the slowest speed to achieve the lowest possible noise levels. In that case GREE can claim 21dba for the GWH09TAK3DNA1B model on low speed. However, in reality these units will not cool or heat your open plan living area and you will need a much larger air conditioner / heat pump. For example, a 60m2 living area would require approximately 7kW of cooling. The larger the air conditioner the more air you are required to move. The more air you move the more noise generated. So for a more reasonable comparison of noise levels compare each model from high to low.
Better Air Quality
The Hansol Range of hi-wall heat pumps offers several features that improve air quality. All units come standard with filters to remove dust particles. Additional to this each unit is fitted with as standard a photocatalytic filter to remove bacteria, viruses and unpleasant odours. With seven fan speeds available you can choose your desired air flow from super low to turbo. The auto fan feature enables the on board logic to select the best fan speed based on the indoor temperature and the thermostat set point.
This clever feature enables the unit to take temperature readings from where we sense the indoor temperature rather than where the indoor unit senses the temperature. By pressing the “I Feel” button the room temperature is now recorded from a sensor in the remote control rather than from the unit itself. This gives intelligent temperature control where it is needed and provides a more precise and comfortable environment.

2. Fujitsu Premier Plus
Set-and-forget remote controller
This smart, very thin remote has a large, easy-to-view LCD display with a one-touch button. Best of all is its built-in 7-day timer, so you need only set and forget. It also has sleep and standard program timers.
The ON / OFF timer can be set up to 4 times in one day and 28 times in one week, while the sleep and standard program timers can be selected with one button push. Once set to your requirements you can forget all about your Fujitsu, whilst living in the comfort of your perfect environment.
ENERGY SAVINGS PLUS
Human sensor control
The human sensor infrared technology senses human presence (and not just movement). So it will switch to saving operation 20 minutes after people leave the room. This will reduce the temperature by a maximum of 4C when in heating mode, until someone returns to the room – when the heat pump will return to the original settings.
Brilliant fan technology means that your Premier Plus is as quiet as it gets. In fact, quieter than a soft whisper.
Powerful operation mode
Powerful operation is boosted with maximum full power and strong airflow, which gives you both rapid heating or cooling, to change the room temperature quickly.
Healthy air filtration
The Premier Plus has Apple Catechin filters to collect fine dust, invisible mould spores, and allergens such as pollen from the air. It also has long-life ion deodorisation filters to absorb household odours such as kitchen and pet smells.
The result is a fresher, healthier home environment, which is why Fujitsu is recommended by Asthma New Zealand.

3. HyperCore FH50 High Wall Heat Pump
Low Temperature Performance
Unlike other heat pump systems which produce less heat when the outside temperature drops, the HyperCore FH50 will perform at ideal capacity down to -15°C. HyperCore is the only heat pump range that can guarantee this kind of performance. HyperCore is ideal for; locations where temperatures fall below zero, high altitude areas, high humidity areas or if you simply want the best heating performance available.
3D I-See Sensor
Exclusive to the FH Deluxe Series, the unique 3D “i-See” Sensor continuously analyses the temperature profile of your room, detecting exactly where you and your family are located based on your unique body heat signatures. With this thermal data, it then directs the perfect amount of heating or cooling towards those who need it most.
Dual Split Vane Technology
The split vane design on the FH Deluxe Series allows airflow to be customised to suit different areas of the room, by independently direct air upwards, downwards or to the side. Split vane airflow is ideal for multi level hallways in homes.
6 Star Energy Efficiency
All models in the FH Deluxe High Wall Range have been awarded the Energy Star mark, making them some of the most energy efficient heat pumps available in New Zealand. The FH25 model even boasts a 6 Star Energy Rating ensuring super energy efficient performance all winter long.
With a built in intuitive occupancy sensor, all FH Deluxe Series models able to detect when you leave the room (when in occupancy mode), automatically switching into energy-saving mode to realise even greater energy savings.
