Guide to heat pump hot water systems
The best energy-saving hot water system is a hot water heat pump, which can ‘store’ your excess solar energy as hot water. Here’s everything you need to know about heat pump hot water systems.
A heat pump hot water system can reduce your household’s hot water energy consumption by up to 80 per cent. It can also use free solar energy to power what little energy is required, potentially reducing your running costs to zero. Considering that hot water is the average Australian household’s biggest energy user after central heating, this is a significant cost reduction. Heat pump systems also generally emit the lowest amount of greenhouse gases compared to other hot water systems, making them a sustainable and eco-friendly choice for households.
