Wall mounted heat pumps can heat and cool from small bedrooms through to larger areas. It is however more suited to heating/ cooling one room. If you have several rooms, it would be best to either have one wall mounted in each room or find a different solution like a multi or ducted system.

To determine how efficient the heat pump is, you will need to look at the COP (Coefficient of Performance) for that particular unit. The higher the reading the more efficient it is.

Set Your Heat Pump’s Operation Times & Temperatures
Turning your heat pump’s temperature up will not heat your home quickly. It will increase your power consumption instead. Gradually heating your home is a more cost-effective way to warm your house. Schedule your heat pump’s hours of operation if you won’t need it during the entire day. Turning it on half an hour to an hour before you get home should make it warm enough for you by the time you arrive. Keep the temperature at the prescribed operating temp based on the manual.
