Heat pump hot water heaters are some of the most technologically advanced hot water systems available on the market. At Australian Hot Water, you can buy heat pump hot water systems from a range of leading brands like Rinnai, Rheem, and Sanden.
A heat pump hot water system uses a fluid called a refrigerant, which has the natural property of absorbing heat. Working something like a fridge in reverse, a heat pump system takes in ambient warmth from the air surrounding the system. Using the refrigerant, the air is then compressed to increase its thermal energy.
This heat is then transferred to the cold water passing through the system. Once the water has been heated, it is then stored in a tank, much like a traditional gas or electric storage system.
When you buy a heat pump hot water heater, you are making an investment to save money on your ongoing energy bills. Since a heat pump takes the majority of its energy from the natural environment, it uses very little power from the grid. This is important to remember when looking at heat pump water heater prices.
When buying a heat pump system, you need to decide whether you want a single unit or a split unit. Single units, like the Rheem HDi 310L and the Rinnai Enviroflow 315L, combine the heat pump and the storage tank together in one place. Split units, like the Rheem 325L MPI and the Sanden Eco Plus range, separate the heat pump from the storage tank. Usually, the heat pump is installed outside and channels water into an inside storage tank.
