Heat pumps use renewable energy to heat water. To put it simply, a heat pump works like a refrigerator, but in reverse. It uses a small amount of energy (approximately 1kW for every 4kW of heat produced) to move heat from one location (in this case the air) to another (your water tank).
While not as well-known as its electric, gas and solar hot water counterparts, the heat pump is actually considered one of the most energy-efficient hot water systems available. Over time you can significantly reduce your power consumption and save on energy bills.
Hot water heat pumps are:
- Designed to save energy
- Designed to save money
- Roughly 3 times more efficient than conventional electric hot water
- Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- Whisper quiet
- Weather independent

Why Choose a Heat Pump Hot water System
When deciding to purchase a Hot water system to your home you are normally faced with the following options: Solar, Electric, Gas or Heat Pumps.
While electric and gas pumps cost less than a heat pump, they cost almost 3 times more to run. When comparing those systems with a heat pump, you can save up to 78% on your hot water energy running costs.
Solar heaters can be more expensive to install and have similar running costs, they have one major downfall. They are weather dependent. If there isn’t enough sunlight on any particular day, an electric or gas backup system will usually kick in to heat the water as needed. As a rule of thumb a solar system will only produce twice the ambient temperature, so if you have a 20 degree day you will only produce 40 degrees of heated water, the rest is heated by an electric element back up.
If you’re considering a solar or a heat pump, you may be interested to know that a heat pump is the more cost-effective option overall.
