HOW DOES A HEAT PUMP OPERATE?

Heat pump hot water systems work on a similar basis to reverse cycle air conditioners, in that they use a heat exchanger and pump to take heat from the air outside your home and convert this into energy. This energy in turn creates electricity which is then used to heat the water in your storage tank. However, this doesn’t mean that a heat pump hot water system requires hot weather in order to be able to operate — heat pump units are able to transfer energy and create electricity to heat your water inside even when the conditions are cold outside (although it can be advisable to have your system fitted with an electric booster as well).

WHY HEAT PUMP?

Installing a heat pump hot water unit in your Adelaide home enables you to harness a renewable energy source and, although they are powered by mains electricity, heat pump hot water units are far more efficient and consume significantly less than electricity hot water systems. Ultimately, this means that you are using less electricity or gas to heat the water in your kitchen, bathroom or laundry, thus reducing your ongoing operating costs.

At Aquatek Plumbing & Gas, we install, service and repair all major brands of heat pump systems, and can also advise and guide you as to whether a heat pump unit can be fitted retrospectively to your existing electric hot water unit. We also install and maintain electric booster units fitted to heat pump hot water systems.

Heat Pump Installation Adelaide

  1. A fan draws air through an evaporator. Thermal energy within the air is transferred to a liquid refigerant causing it change into a gas.
  2. The refrigerant gas is then drawn into a compressor which increases the pressure and as a result increases the temperature.
  3. A condenser (heat exchanger) then transports the hot gas refrigerant around the outsider of the water tank. This heats the water inside the tank and the gaseous refrigerant reverts into a liquid.
  4. The pressure of the referigerant is reduced as it goes through an expansion valve and returns to the evaporator for the process to start again.
