Heat Pumps Postans
Quality brands and installation of Heat Pumps in Postans
Home owners in Postans and across Australia are taking control of their rising electricity bills by installing a hot water heat pump.
Hot water heat pumps are as efficient as traditional solar hot water without the need for roof thermal panels. Combine your heat pump with solar power however, and you’ve got the Holy Grail of setups; delivering you up to 100% FREE hot water in Summer AND Winter!
Driving around Postans, you'll see just some of the 1.5 million Australian homes that have now installed roof-top solar power. Energy independence and lower utility bills are on top of mind and we’ve seen enquiries for batteries going through the roof. But battery prices are still prohibitive with no encouragement from the Government.
We’ve seen a growing trend where home owners are using their heat pump hot water system as a Thermal Battery to their Solar PV. It’s a smart move given our range of heat pumps all get hot water rebates, generally worth ~$1000.
The graph below shows typical electricity generation from Solar Photovoltaic (PV) systems (yellow) in Postans over the course of a year. A traditional solar hot water system still needs to draw on a power-hungry booster for a short period of time (green) during the winter months.
The consistently low power consumption of a heat pump (shown in blue) can easily be covered by Solar PV ensuring your hot water flows free and generously all year round. And still leaves plenty of excess energy from PV generation for other power appliances around the house.
Postans averages around 265 days of sunshine each year - more than anywhere else in Australia - which is great news for solar power during warmer months... but what about the other 100 days?
Heat pumps are unique in that they do not need direct sunlight to work. They work on energy-transfer principles, moving energy from the air to the hot water storage tank. Even in air that seems too cold to you and me, heat energy is present. This process can be 5 times more efficient than using a conventional electric hot water system.
The minimal energy it does draw during this process can be covered when timing it to operate when your solar power is producing. The water tank stores hot water for use when you need it (for example, evenings and mornings), hence the term Thermal Battery.
