Not all heat pump covers are the same, so ensure it is engineered with performance in mind

But what about performance? Not all heat pump covers are created equal. So it is important that you only choose a cover that is specifically performance tested and approved by leading heat pump and air conditioning manufacturers such as Mitsubishi Electric. A heat pump cover needs to be precisely designed to make sure that the air is controlled by keeping the inlet and outlet separate. Good design takes the flow of the louvre into consideration so the heat pump continues to perform as it should.

To ensure performance is not impacted, Mitsubishi Electric has partnered up with a New Zealand-based company called Heatpump Covers. They are the local heat pump cover experts who specialise in making customised covers; utilising the full range of powder coat colours available to blend in with any home. Now you don’t need to compromise exterior aesthetics with visual distractions.

Choose from two styles and an almost unlimited range of colours to express your design personality

Heatpump Covers are available in two distinct styles. The Standard Cover comes with a colour matched sturdy aluminium top. The look is clean and simple. With an almost endless colour selection to choose from, you can stand out or tie it in with the features of your home – it’s up to you!

The Premium Cover offers a hardwood timber top laid into an aluminium frame with hand-finished detailed edges and an oiled surface, so it can seamlessly sit beside the finest outdoor furniture and building features.
