Heat pump hot water systems use technology for heating water that is the most energy-efficient way to provide hot water heating. Heat pump technology can be used in many applications, as they can use renewable heat sources from its surroundings. Even on a cold day at temperatures we would consider to be cold. A heat pump hot water system can use the ambient heat from the ground, air and water that can be continuously replenished by the heat of the sun.

Heat pump systems heat water by using electricity to pump cool water from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. When a heat pump is used to heat water for domestic homes, heat pump water heaters work like refrigerators but in reverse. Heat pumps are integral units with built-in water storage cylinders. They extract heat from the environment to heat the water and this makes them a very efficient type of electric water storage heater. The initial investment is paid back more quickly in larger homes.
Heat pumps only use about one third of the energy of a traditional electric hot water system, but, by using a solar preheater heat pumps can be made even more efficient. Unlike a traditional electric hot water system, electricity is not used to directly heat the water but to move heat from one place to another. The heat is carried by a refrigerant.
When compared to electric hot water systems, heat pumps are much more energy efficient as they draw much less power.

If a heat pump hot water heater is not appropriate for your current situation you might like to consider a Solar hot water system. Gas boosted solar hot water systems are the most energy efficient and we currently install AquaMax solar, Bosch solar, Envirosun solar, Equinox solar and Rheem solar hot water systems. Solar hot water systems can save you between 50 to 90 percent on your energy costs which is comparable with heat pump hot water which can save 50 to 75 percent of your daily energy use. Both solar and heat pump are great for the environment and great for your hot water energy usage. They are more expensive to install than electric hot water and gas hot water units but over their life time of the heat pump or solar system you choose to install, they can save you thousands of dollars in energy bills. Infact when upgrading from an electric hot water system a solar or heat pump appliance could save you up to $300 per year.
