Heat Pump

The Solahart heat pump is a smart, energy efficient alternative for areas where a traditional solar water heater may not be suitable, such as an application with a shaded north facing roof.

Rather than using roof mounted collectors, efficient heat pump technology extracts energy from the surrounding air. Ambient warmth is used to convert the refrigerant within the sealed system into a gas. The gas is then compressed to generate even more heat which then heats the water in the tank. What’s more this process can work day or night, in sunshine and rain, all year round.

Installation is quick and easy. The heat pump water heater can usually be installed in the same location as an outdoor electric water heater and connected up to the existing plumbing and electrical connections, making it a great replacement for an existing water heater.

It is also equipped with an electric booster designed to operate only in very cold conditions to ensure a quick and efficient supply of hot water when you may need it most. The ceramic lined tank is further protected by its sacrificial anode.

Features

  • Uses heat pump technolgy to extract heat from the air, day or night
  • Ideal for installations not suitable for tradtional solar water heaters
  • Integrated electric booster heats in very cold weather conditions
  • Uses less energy than a conventional electric water heater*
  • Sleek, modern design

Benefits

  • Can save up to 60% to 65% of water heating energy consumption*
  • Hot water regardless of the weather
  • Qualifies for valuable environmental incentives*
  • Reduced energy use can save up to 1.7 to 2.9 tonnes of CO2 emissions per annum*
  • Peace of mind with 5/3/2/1 year warranty†

* Energy savings of up to 60% to 65% shown are based on Australian Government approved TRNSYS simulation modelling using a medium load and apply when replacing an electric water heater with a Solahart heat pump. Savings and incentives will vary depending upon your location and type of water heater being replaced. The impact on an electricity account will depend on the tariff arrangement of the water heater being replaced and where you live. The Solahart 325HAV Heat Pump water heater is recommended for connection to a 24 hour per day power supply, although a minimum 16 hour per day power supply in tropical areas may be suitable. Before purchase consult your energy provider for more information on cost comparisons. Refer to solahart.com.au for further information.
