Heat pump systems use special technology for heating water that doesn't require the use of panels or anything mounted on your rooftop. Available in split and integrated configurations, heat pumps can provide great flexibility in terms of installation.
Heat pumps extract the heat in the air outside of the unit and transfer that heat to the water stored inside the heater; bringing the temperature up to 55C - 60C.
These units can effectively heat water even in very cold conditions - some in environments as cold as -10 degrees Celsius.
A heat pump can slash your water heating power bills by up to 75% and may be a good choice in installation scenarios where a traditional solar hot water system cannot be used or isn't desired. Generous subsidies are also available; varying depending on installation location
