Energy Effcient Water Heating Heat Pumps

It’s the water heating trend that’s fast gaining momentum in South Africa! Whether in homes or hotels, water heating accounts for a large portion of electricity usage. And with rapidly increasing electricity costs, everyone’s looking to cut down. Heat Pumps work on the same principle as air conditioners, extracting ambient heat from the atmosphere but, instead, transferring it to water. Thus where in a normal geyser 1 kW of electrical energy produces just 1 kW of heat energy, with a  Heat Pump 1 kW of electrical energy produces approximately 3 kW of heat energy. The result is water heated for only approximately one third of the electrical usage of a normal household geyser. You save two-thirds on your water heating costs! Both Domestic and Commercial units available

The domestic units comfortably heat from 100 litres to 500 litres of water. For commercial use, as a result of the modularity of our Heat Pumps, many units can be linked together to supply up to thousands of litres of hot water per hour. Water temperature as well heating periods can be adjusted via remote control to meet specific hot water demands. Pool Heat Pumps are also available
