An affordable step towards Solar Hot Water, perfect for upgrading from an electric system
Solar Powered Hot Water Pump
Why Heat Pump Technology Is The New Energy Efficient Choice For Hot Water
And How They Work
Traditionally, solar water heaters have proven themselves to be an energy efficient renewable water heating alternative to gas and electric systems, and while solar systems are still an efficient way to heat water, heat pumps save equivalent amounts of energy and greenhouse gas emissions to electric boosted solar systems, yet are relatively more cost effective to purchase. Heat Pumps have evolved to be able to provide the following unique advantages:
- Relatively low cost to purchase and install
- Easy, ‘same day’ replacement
- Frost protected
- Safe, as water temperature is electronically controlled
- Doesn’t require roof mounted panels, which reduces the structural load on your roof and increases the aesthetic value to your property
- They work day and night, as they don’t rely on daylight to operate 100%
