Save big on your electricity bill by investing in a heat pump hot water system!
Using a heat pump water heater is a highly energy-efficient solution for replacing a traditional electric system. It works by absorbing hot air and using it to warm up the liquid in a manner that saves on your energy bill whilst also reducing the carbon footprint of your home.
There are several major benefits to using a heat pump water heater system in your home, including:
This whole process reduces the cost of cylinder warming by approximately 70% when compared with a traditional cylinder system. With up to 40% of the average electricity bill being owed to your cylinder, you stand to save a lot of money by going with a heat pump hot water system.
However, the system will work even in very cold conditions when the surrounding air is close to -10 degrees Celsius. This is why the systems are still popular during winter time.
The process work as follows:
The air outside the heat pump hot water system is drawn into the unit via a fan that funnels the air into an evaporator that uses a special kind of refrigerant stored in the piping. The refrigerant is NOT a Chlorofluorocarbon (CFC), meaning that it doesn’t have a negative effect on the planet’s ozone layer.
The refrigerant has a boiling point for evaporation at -26 degrees Celsius, meaning that the liquid will “boil” at temperatures that feel very cold to use but are still enough to do the job. The air that is drawn inside the system, which is much warmer than the refrigerant, converts the refrigerant from a liquid into a gaseous form within the piping of the heat pump hot water system.
A compressor works to push the gaseous refrigerant through a very small valve which compresses it; resulting in a large amount of heat being generated.
An exchanger transfers the hot air from the refrigerant via gas pipes that connect to the tank where the water is contained.
As the temperature is transferred into the liquid, the refrigerant cools down very quickly so that it returns to a liquid state and can repeat the process again.
This process continues until the liquid within the cylinder reaches the desired temperature, which is set at a max of 60 degrees Celsius.
The Cylinder Guy can install a high-tech Aquafire heat pump hot water system onto your existing storage cylinder!
The Cylinder Guy proudly installs Aquafire brand systems onto new and existing cylinders all around New Zealand. We are eager to recommend Aquafire systems for their reliability and the savings they can bring to your monthly electricity bill.
If you are concerned about the current cost of running your existing cylinder, then consider going with a more cost-effective solution. It’s better to make a long term investment in something that’s sustainable, rather than enduring unnecessary costs by running an inefficient system.
The Cylinder Guy is able to install an Aquafire heat pump water heater system onto a new or existing cylinder. The Aquafire unit is able to reduce your monthly energy bill by up 30% as it is 3 times more efficient than a traditional electric system.
Enjoy hot showers all year round without feeling guilty about your energy consumption!
Aquafire heat pump water heater systems use the DuPont 417A refrigerant, which is one of the most environmentally sustainable refrigerant products available. Aquafire systems are built with the best possible components to ensure that it is built to last and not end up discarded in a landfill somewhere.
With the combination of durability, reliability and efficiency, the Aquafire systems are an ideal solution for those who want to keep enjoying the same amount of hot showers without feeling guilty about their overall energy consumption.
An Aquafire heat pump hot water system is the superior way to reduce your energy costs and environmental impact.
