At this home in Westmere, Auckland, the homeowner needed both a heating and a cooling solution. Because this front bedroom has a westerly aspect and several glass windows, it’s something of a heat trap and often quite unbearable on hot, summer days.

New Zealand Heat Pumps recommended the Fujitsu ASTG09LVC, a compact high-wall heat pump, measuring only 790mm wide, ideal for a bedroom where space is limited. The outdoor unit has been mounted on concrete pavers, and tucked around the side of the house, out of view. The Fujitsu ASTG09LVC can be used for both heating and cooling; in this instance the owner plans on using it mainly for cooling the bedroom in summer. They’re looking forward to sleeping peacefully in a wonderfully cool room this summer.
