Factors such as the energy efficiency of your particular unit, whether it is sized correctly for the area, your individual energy company rates and how effectively you use the unit will all be a consideration here.
EECA (The Energy Efficiency & Conservation Authority) has identified Heat Pumps as one of the most energy efficient forms of heating around. Heat Pumps do not create heat, they simply move available heat from one place to another. The little energy that is needed is predominantly used to run the compressor.
A Heat Pump typically uses 1kW to create 4kW of heat. The result is around 4 times less energy needed to that of traditional electric heaters, saving you money by reducing your power bill. Running your heat pump is roughly one quarter the cost of traditional electric heating and are one of the most cost-effective ways of keeping your home warm and dry.
