What is the Difference Between a Single Room Heat Pump System and a Multi Room Heat Pump System?

Heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient appliances to heat a room in a home. So it is no surprise that over the years, they have quickly become the preferred heat source for most living rooms in New Zealand.

Once home owners have experienced the year round comfort of owning a heat pump, a room without one is a stark contrast! As a result, many home owners that started off with just one heat pump to heat the living room will have looked to install a second heat pump for another room, at a later date.

While a standard heat pump system consists of a single indoor and outdoor unit, a Multi Room Heat Pump System allows you to connect multiple indoor units to a single outdoor unit. These advanced systems not only give you the freedom to select the indoor model best suited to each and every room in your home, they also enhance exterior aesthetics by reducing the number of outdoor units required to only one - minimising exterior clutter.

Single Room System

A single room system is designed to connect to only one indoor unit, providing heat to one room only.

This means that if you have purchased a single room system and you would like heating in another room, you would need another complete system made up of another outdoor unit that is connected to its own indoor unit to provide heating for the second room. As a result, home owners would inevitably end up with are a number of large bulky outdoor units scattered round the perimeter of the house; often taking up valuable outdoor space.

Multi Room Systems

Mitsubishi Electric has developed a range of powerful outdoor units called Multi Room Heat Pump Systems. It consists of one outdoor unit that is specifically designed to be able to be connected to a number of indoor units so multiple rooms can be heated at the same time. The beauty of this system is that with only one outdoor unit needed, precious outdoor space is optimised and exterior street appeal is maintained.

Multi Room Heat Pump Systems let you reflect your style by mixing and matching the indoor units.

Multi Room Heat Pump Systems are versatile so there’s no need to standardise on the indoor style type! Whether it’s a small capacity whisper quiet high wall for the bedroom, a compact floor console for the office or a discreet ducted model for the lounge, there is a style and capacity to fit any room – no matter the size or interior aesthetics.

If you are looking for a whole home heating and cooling system that allows you to reflect your design personality both inside and out, a Multi Room Heat Pump System is the ideal solution.
