How Heat Pump Water Heating Can Save Money

Would you like to save 80% off the power typically used to make hot water?

When you think of solar hot water, you think of a solar hot water service installed on your roof. However, if you already have solar PV installed on your roof, then the obvious pairing for energy-efficient hot water is with a heat pump that saves 80% of hot water energy compared to an electric or gas water heater.

Running a heat pump during the day enables you to access low cost solar power, leaving plenty of low cost solar power for the rest of the home. For example, your air conditioning and appliances will have access to more low-cost solar power. So there’s never been a better time to replace your old energy-hungry water heater with an energy-efficient heat pump. Better still, the heat pump doesn’t take up any space on your roof, allowing more solar power generation.

The heat pump water heater works by harnessing the sun’s ambient heat energy with an energy-efficient heat transfer (heat pump) process. An energy-efficient hot water system such as a heat pump is a great way for households to make substantial reductions in their energy consumption and cost of living.

Household Energy Production and Consumption

A 315 litre electric hot water tank was replaced by a Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump.

Solar Analytics was already in place so that real data was available for usage before and after the Reclaim Energy CO2 Heat Pump installation.

Before the installation of the Reclaim Heat Pump water heater.

After the installation of the Reclaim Heat Pump water heater.

Daily power consumption was reduced by over 80%:

  • Before Heat Pump installation: 14-20kWh/day
  • After Heat Pump installation: 2-4kWh/day
