Choosing the right Hamilton heat pumps can sometimes be a bit overwhelming because of the many options available, and factors to consider. Fortunately, we have created this guide to help guide you through your decision making process, and ensure you choose the best Hamilton heat pump that's best for you. Without further ado, here are the factors to consider when choosing a heat pump;

1. Room Size
The overall size of your room or home will determine the capacity, power and the size of the heat pump you need. The larger the room, the higher the unit capacity required. You can consult a Hamilton heat pump professional who will measure your room and help determine the best heat pump size for your needs.
2. Noise Output
Compressors and fans tend to be rather noisy, so consider choosing a heat pump that has an outdoor sound rating of about 7.6 bels (i.e 76 decibels) or less. Also, consult a professional about availability of sound screens and noise reducing platforms. That said, consider having the unit installed outdoors and away from the windows, and protect it from strong winds.

3. Performance Ratings
Hamilton Heat pumps can actually generate significant energy savings if you choose the best unit for your needs. To do this, make sure you check th unit's the star ratings before buying. the more the stars, the better the energy efficiency.

4. Reverse Cycle Chiller
You should consider getting a heat pump that has a reverse cycle chiller as this will allow you to pair the unit with various other heating and cooling systems. This can significantly help make your room/home cozier. 

5. Demand-Defrost Control
Another factor to consider when choosing a heat pump, is a demand-defrost control feature. If you choose a heat pump with the demand-defrost control feature, you will enjoy minimal defrost cycles, thus reducing the overall energy use.
