    I love Hitachi purely for their guarantee and quality of product. I think a major NZ DIY store do Hitachi only now. My sparkie who is also involved with heat pump indtalls swears by the brand. However as always..
    Buyer beware!

    Thanks for your feedback - you don't work for them do you? haha My sparky suggested this brand too. It's interesting because you usually hear the brands Mitsubishi, Daikin, Fujitsu when people talk about heat pumps. Anyone else using a Hitachi?

    I do not work for them sorry. I have been on this forum long enough to understand the rules of soliciting. My comments are free of any intentional gains that could be percieved by others. After sales service is what I always look for in most of my acquisitions.

    Any update on Heat Pump recommendations, particularly how they are standing up to tenant use and abuse.

    Don't go with Fujitsu they don't stand by warranty I have found. In process of taking them to small claims court to enforce a warranty.

    I ended up having a couple of Mitsubishi units installed by FPS who did a great job.

    My experience is they are very expensive to run, chewing up lots of power, and tend to dry the air out giving me a dry throat and headache.

    A 2-bar heater can be a better "maintenance free" alternative and at only $20 a massive saving .

    I have to say... my heatpumps are great, not at all expensive to run. The upfront cost is pretty big though.

    But they would be a lot more expensive to run than a simple 1 or 2 bar heater placed in the lounge right?
