Heat Pump Installation
Heat pumps are one of the most efficient domestic hot-water heating systems available, and with the right application can cut heating costs by utilising heat from the surrounding environment.
How a Heat Pump Works
A heat pump will replace the current geyser’s electrical element, resulting in saving you money.
In effect, a heat pump will transfer heat from a source (air) that is sucked over the condenser, by means of an electric fan, to heat another source (water).
Latent heat energy of the air is transferred to the gas within the condenser coil, which pre-heats the gas and reduces the work that the compressor has to eventually do. The compressor increases the pressure and the refrigerant gas is heated as a result of the increased partial pressure.
Advantages of Heat Pumps
- Heat pump: up to 70% savings on electricity usage costs for heating water
- Smart controllers: easier installation and self programming
- Low noise: below 55 decibels
- No coal, oil or liquid gas is used: only ambient air, therefore no contaminating material being discharged and no air pollution caused
- Hybrid system available (combined with solar water heating system): up to 90% electricity efficiency
- Works under any weather condition, or time demand
