Who wouldn’t, right? The difference is this: not everyone can deliver such a desirable end result. But we can!
If you’re replacing an old hot water system, it can be tempting to simply get the same type as you had before. Right? But these days there are all sorts of different systems you can choose from, each with different features and benefits, and different running costs. So it’s important to consider your options. And when it comes to more efficient alternatives, both heat pump hot water systems and solar hot water systems have the lowest running costs (Source: Australian Energy Foundation).
But when it comes to picking either a heat pump or a solar hot water system as an upgrade of an old gas or electric hot water system, we recommend installing a heat pump for a number of reasons:
Enviroheat heat pumps ( air sourced solar) are made by one of the world’s largest appliance manufacturers Haier, that is the parent company of the likes of Fisher and Paykel and GE Appliances (amongst many others). Their heat pump product was initially introduced into Europe over a decade ago and has a proven performance in temperatures as low as -7°C. It offers the best performance of any system in its class with up to a massive 71% saving in energy when compared to a conventional electric or bottled gas water heater.
The ENVIROHEAT HP system has undergone rigorous testing and has been certified by the Australian Government’s Clean Energy Regulator. ENVIROHEAT HP’s inclusion to the CER Register allows you to claim generous government rebates and dramatically reduce installation costs.
The ENVIROHEAT HP series comes in 200L and 250L sizes and has an advanced control system that is feature packed and above all, easy to use. It can be programmed to maximize the use of rooftop solar power systems (PVs) whilst not compromising a plentiful supply of steaming hot water when you need it. The automatic sanitisation feature ensures that your family is safe from legionella and other water borne bacteria.
The combination of whisper quiet operation, smart controls, superior UV protection and generous government rebates makes ENVIROHEAT the natural choice for an energy efficient home.
Enviroheat Heat Pumps come with 5 years tank and compressor warranty and a 1 year warranty on labour and electrical components and pressure valves, thereby offering a warranty with substance and peace of mind when choosing an Enviroheat heat pump.
The Heat Pump principle is a simple concept, brilliantly executed. It works on a refrigeration principle similar to that found in a fridge – but instead of pumping heat out of the fridge to keep it cool, they pump heat into the water.
Is a heat pump water heater the best possible choice for your family, home and budget?
Kalamunda Plumbing is here to answer that and any other questions you might have. Here’s what we bring to the table:
Perhaps the biggest consideration when comparing the purchase price of a heat pump to a standard electric hot water system, is that once the higher energy efficiency and STC credits for a Heat Pump are factored in, the break-even time is less than 3 years for the average family. Over the life of a heat pump hot water system this will give you an electricity saving in excess of $3000.
