As an environmentally advanced product the Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System is an affordable system that is ranked alongside solar energy in terms of environmental friendliness. As such it is eligible for rebates and other government incentives, offering the highest level of Small-scale Technology Certificates (STCs) of any hot water heat pump system. These rebates save you even more from the outset.
How a Reclaim Energy Heat Pump works
A Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System uses leading technology to draw energy in from the ambient atmosphere and transfer it into heat. Ozone friendly refrigerant (CO2) absorbs the heat, which then flows into a compressor, where it’s converted into a high temperature gas. It then passes through a condenser within the water heat exchanger and the water is heated and then stored in the hot water tank for later use. No backup booster is required.
This means the Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System requires much less electricity to heat water when compared to conventional hot water systems. In fact, the system will save up to 80%* of hot water energy costs, year after year.
A Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System has an average COP of 5 which means that for 1 kW of electric input, it generates about 5 kW thermal output. This is about 80% less energy when compared to traditional electric element hot water systems, where 1 kW of electricity generates 1 kW of thermal output. A comparison is given on a case study page for a Reclaim system versus other hot water technology solutions from a cost and performance perspective.
As electricity prices continue to rise year on year, a Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump Hot Water System becomes the best, most financially sustainable option available.
