Heat Pumps

Heat pumps are a great way to help significantly lower your energy costs. Heating water is a major energy user in most homes, consuming up to one-quarter of your annual energy supply.

Heat pumps displace a large amount of the electricity or gas you’d have to buy to heat your water, and instead utilise modern compressor technologies to efficiently deliver hot water for your home. 

How it Works:

  • A heat pump is basically a refrigerator in reverse. Through efficient compressor technology, it utilises ambient energy around the unit to heat the water stored inside the storage tank.
  • Heat pumps use a refrigerant with a boiling point well below that of water, therefore, even if it’s cold outside, it’s still warm enough to cause the refrigerant to boil.

Benefits of Heat Pumps:

  • Energy efficiency – heat pumps used one-quarter of the energy an electric water heater uses.
  • If you have a solar PV system, we can ensure the majority (if not all) of the heating takes place during the day by using built-in timers. This will provide a near 100% offset.
  • Significant reduction in energy bills.
  • Reduction in carbon emissions.
  • Increase in the value of your home.
  • Effective even in winter.
  • Solar panels are not required.
  • Easy installation process as no access to the roof is required.

Government Incentives:

Under the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme, heat pumps are entitled to a number of small-scale technology certificates (STCs). An STC is a calculation of how many megawatts of energy your heat pump expected to save over ten years, when compared to the electricity consumption of an equivalent electric water heater.

For example, a 315 Litre Sanden Heat Pump Tank is expected to produce approximately 31MwH of energy over 10 years. This means you are entitled to 31 STCs. STCs currently trade for around $38 each, which means you’d receive around $1,178 off the upfront cost of the unit.
