The majority of people think that their air conditioner heating mode is more expensive to use compared to an electric heater. We’re here to explain why this is not the case!
An electric heater takes approximately 2kw of power to generate 2kw of heat, to supply 2kW of heat, a Chigo Air Conditioner only needs 0.6kw of electrical power.
The reason for this is the air conditioner's heat pump extracts a lot of free heat from the air.This ambient heat warms the normally chilled liquid refrigerant and converts it into a gas, after which the force of the compressor causes it to get even hotter. A condenser then transfers the heat from the gas into the expelled air, warm air at literally a third of the cost of an electric heater!
