Want to be enviornmentally friendly but don’t want the bother of having to install solar panels to heat your water? Want to save money on your hot water bills? Heat Pumps are the latest development for hot water systems.

What is a Heat Pump?

Basically warm air enters the system and cooler air is pushed out.Cool water is then able to enter the system from the storage tank and at the same time heat is transferred to the water in the heat pump.Hot water is then returned to the tank ready for use.

Benefits of a Heat Pump

  • No need to install expensive solar panels on you roof
  • They don’t need daylight to operate
  • Compare favourably to solar panels for cost savings
  • They offer an environmentally friendly hot water option with a big reduction in greenhouse gas emissions
  • They are electronically controlled using the same connection as normal electrical hot water systems, meaning a cost saving when installing
  • They continue to wok well in low tempatures with the water remaining at a consistent temperature
  • They are manufactured and sold by reputable companies such as Dux and Rheem meaning they are guaranteed for years

 

Heat Pump Products

At AJs Plumbing with work with a number of suppliers to source the best products for you. Below are a couple of examples of hydronic heat pumps from Hunt Heating.
Immergas Audax heat pump
The Immergas Audax heat pump is an air to water heat pump using inverter technology, ideal for stand-alone systems or combined with additional heat sources and equipment delivering hybrid systems. It can provide both hydronic heating and cooling as well as domestic hot water.

Gree Ultra Heat Pump
The Gree Ultra hydronic heat pump continuously absorbs low grade heat from the surrounding air and transforms this into usable high grade heat. This is then transferred to water via a high efficiency heat exchanger to ensure reliable, stable hot water supply. Its compact modular design makes it perfect for environments where reliability is a must and space is in high demand.
