“These guys are fantastic! I managed to book in super quickly for an emergency issue. The booking window was only 2hrs and they called half an hour before so it was super easy for someone working full time. They were friendly and fixed the issue really quickly. He tidied up and left it all cleaner than it was before they came. Pricing was super reasonable as well considering the quality work 🙂 Huge thanks to the team!”

Why Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters?

Choosing an electric heat pump hot water system means you’re able to enjoy a myriad of benefits that conventional water heaters simply can’t match:

  1. Shrink your energy bills: Save up to 60% on water heating costs compared to conventional electric water heaters. How? This system uses less electricity to heat the same amount of water.
  1. Reduce your carbon footprint: Lower your greenhouse gas emissions by up to 70% compared to traditional electric water heaters. This is possible because the system leverages renewable energy from the surrounding air to heat the water, rather than fossil fuels, especially when you have solar power installed.
  1. Enjoy a longer lifespan: With proper maintenance, this system can last up to 15 years or more, outliving most conventional electric water heaters which typically last only up to 10 years.
  1. Experience high performance: This system offers steady, reliable hot water throughout the year, even in cold weather. Thanks to a defrost cycle that prevents icing on the compressor unit, the system can operate in an ambient air temperature ranging from -15°C to 45°C.
  1. No solar panels needed: Hot water heat pumps work independently of solar panels, inverters, or batteries when using this renewable power. This eliminates installation and energy costs, roof space issues, shading problems, and maintenance costs associated with solar systems.
  2.  Easy installation: Installable either outside or inside your home, an electric hot water system using a heat pump doesn’t need any special plumbing or electrical connections, as it takes advantage of standard fittings and wiring.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Got questions about electric heat pump hot water systems? Here are some common queries:

Plumbing van in Canberra area
How long does it take for an electric heat pump system to heat water?

Typically, it takes 4-6 hours to heat a full tank of water. However, modern heat pumps come with smart controls that allow you to schedule heating times to align with your usage patterns, ensuring hot water is ready when you need it.

How loud is a heat pump unit?

Heat pumps operate very quietly, similar to a refrigerator. You can expect around 40-60 decibels, which is comparable to background noise levels. With proper installation away from bedrooms and neighbours, there should be minimal disturbance.

How much space is needed for a heat pump system?

An integrated heat pump tank requires about 1-2 sqm of floor area. Split systems with separate storage tanks require less space – generally 0.5 sqm for the heat pump unit. We ensure the right clearances for ventilation and maintenance access.

How frequently should a heat pump system be serviced?

We recommend a service every 1-2 years depending on your water usage and quality. Regular maintenance allows us to check and clean all components, replace any worn parts, and keep your system running at peak efficiency and safety. This preventative approach helps avoid problems down the line.
