    Default Heat pump quotes

    Hello I'm the wife of James 1077. My family have woken up freezing in our house and made me cave to a proper heating system which we need ASAP.
    Amazingly the man at 'the heat pump guys' in Albany, auckland...came straight away to give quotes..and seemed rather sensible. He quoted $3100 for a Panasonic heat pump of about 4.5kW and $2400 for one of 2.6kW (E9JKR and E15JKR )..I'd like to order it tomorrow but other people can't do quotes till next week...so I thought I'd just ask you all if this seems averagely normal or if you've heard 'the heat pump guys' make a botched job and run off with your money. Sorry it is a bit rude but they all say they are so cold!!!
    Thank you so much in advance...and if you have any issues with James 1077's political beliefs I share none of them

    Hello. No idea about heat pumps, from the other side of the world - sorry! But I sympathize with wanting to be comfortable.

    Hahaha! Welcome to the forum and I hope you feel toasty soon

    My (limited) experience with heatpumps is that you should buy the biggest and best you can ...

    LOL! And if you need a couple of temporary portable heaters let me know. Happy to grab a couple for you.

    Try and get Fujitsu pumps if you can - they have an awesome warranty (5 or 6 years!). We have 4 and they are fab.

    James seems very sensible to me....!

    When others have got quotes for heat pumps has there been a big difference in price, or have they all been pretty similar?

    Cheers

    Don't forget you could get a government grant too. No idea what the details are 'cause we are renting, but could make it even cheaper still.

    I know - it is a great disappointment to me. I did everything right too - found a nice, private school educated girl whilst on a very middle class GAP year in Australia. How could it possibly go wrong? It was only after it was too late that I discovered she was a wishy washy, leftie, Lib Dem voter!

    Cheers Kiwi Mac - the feeling is mutual!
