Thermosyphon Systems

This system is economical and compact and ideal for areas with a favourable climate and high levels of solar radiation. It can be installed on pitch roofs as well as flat roofs. The Thermosyphon system takes advantage of the natural circulation process as hot water rises and cold-water sinks. It is very simple and requires neither pump nor controller.  There are a range of sizes available to meet the hot water requirements for any home.

Heat Pump Hot Water

The heat pump water heater, or thermodynamic water heater operates on the same principle as the air source heat pump. Energy is extracted from the ambient air and used to heat the domestic hot water in your home. By pulling heat from the surrounding air, the heaters are much more energy efficient than conventional electric water heaters.

Benefits:

  • No roof space or panels needed
  • Low operating costs
  • Doesn’t need sunlight to work and will carry on working efficiently through the night
  • Uses approximately one third the energy of an electric water heater

Heat Pump Water Heater

Available in a range of different sizes, the heat pump water heater works by transferring heat in the air outside of the unit to the water stored inside through a heat exchange system. It produces between 3-5 times the amount of renewable energy than the electricity required to power the unit. This makes it an environmentally friendly hot water option and an alternative to solar hot water to help reduce your heating bills.
