How does a heat pump hot water system work?

A heat pump hot water system works on the same principle as a fridge, however instead of pumping heat out of a fridge to keep it cool, it pumps heat into water to make it hot. Electricity is utilised to pump a refrigerant through the system, and the refrigerant moves the heat absorbed through the air to the water that is held in the storage tank.

What is the price of a heat pump water heater?

The price of a heat pump hot water system varies, depending on the type and style you get. Options include:

  • Integrated system : Designed to be installed as a single outdoor unit.
  • Split system : Components both inside and outside of your home
  • Retrofitted systems : Retrofitted to your existing hot water tank.

Some models can also be provided with an electric booster element or defrost cycle for use in colder climates, meaning there is likely something to suit your exact needs.

Heat pump hot water heaters are usually more expensive upfront, however, many of these systems are eligible for Small Scale Technology Certificates (STCs). This is an Australian Government initiative to assist with sustainable energy investment, and are usually utilised to help reduce the purchase price of heat pump and solar units.
