What are Heat Pumps?
Heat Pumps are machines which heat up water using the principal of the refrigeration cycle. These machines use ambient air as a primary source of heat. Electrical energy is used to drive a compressor within the system. Heat Pumps can fit on the standard geysers or used in Industrial Applications.
Savings and Benefits of heat Pumps?
Heat pumps are efficient heaters and generally 2-4 times more efficient than electrical elements. This translates to a 50-75% savings as compared to an electrical element.
Heat Pumps have the following benefits:
- Can operate 24 hours per day even in cold water conditions.
- Excellent return on investment especially in industrial applications.
- Can be placed outside and out of sight.
- Discharging cold air as waste, this may be ducting as air conditioning.
