Heat Pump Hot Water Systems work by extracting energy & heat from the air and transferring it through a heat exchanger to heat the water stored in the cylinder. Unlike conventional Electric hot water systems that can only convert one unit of power to one unit of energy (1: 1), Heat Pump Hot Water Systems can convert one unit of power to up to three units of energy (1: 3). These types of hot water systems are environmentally friendly and energy efficient up to 75% cheaper to run than a standard electric hot water system.
Heat pumps don’t use solar energy directly, thery are classed as air sourced solar water heaters. Installation is generally similar to installing an electric hot- water system. Heat pumps draw energy from the surrounding air and convert it to heat in much the same way as an air conditioner or refrigerator.
Heat pump hot water heaters work in the same manner as your refrigerator or air conditioner in reverse, they should have good air flow around the unit and should be installed outside in most circumstances. Most hot water heater manufacturers have a heat pump in their hot water range to meet current demand.
