Hot water heat pump
Hot water heat pumps use the same technology as your standard room heat pump, meaning fantastic energy efficiency when compared with an electric hot water cylinder.
Mature Technology with Recent Advances
Heat pump hot water (HPHW) technology has been around for at least the last 40 years. With the latest refinements, they have secured their place among the most efficient home heating sources available. Hot water heat pumps essentially extract and concentrate heat from the air outside your home and force it into a water tank, giving you a source of hot water. This process uses less energy than it transfers, meaning you get out more heat than you put in electricity.
Air-source HPHW is a great option in Tauranga and the Bay of Plenty region because the ambient air temperature does not often go below 11 degrees.
We Offer Proven & Trusted HPHW Systems
Eco Plumber & Gasfitter prefers the HPHW systems that we have seen to be reliable, with the best efficiency and great after-sales service. Rinnai is one of our trusted brands, as is Econergy.
The Econergy hot water heat pump has been tested and proven to be among the most efficient units on the market, with up to 70% energy savings, where some brands only deliver 50% energy savings (when compared with electric). When the system is on standby, no power is used. The Econergy heat pump is able to be fitted to new installations and retrofitted to existing hot water systems. Econergy is a quality New Zealand-made product.
Further advantages for an Econergy hot water heat pump system are low installation costs and no building consent required. The location of the unit is flexible and just like standard hot water cylinders, they can be connected to ‘ripple control’ power, meaning they take advantage of the lower electricity rate offered by your power company. They are especially suitable for families who have high levels of hot water usage.
