Australia’s Heat Pump Water Heater Specialists
Many people who are thinking of investing in a solar hot water system presume their only option is solar panels fitted on the roof.
A heat pump is also classified as a solar water heater, but will operate even when there is no direct sunlight.
Siddons heat pumps are energy efficient like any other solar hot water heater, but instead of utilising radiation, they extract solar heat from the air (just like your fridge, but in reverse).
A Siddons heat pump is the best option when you are upgrading your hot water system to solar – particularly when roof panels are not suitable for your circumstances.
There are different types of solar hot water systems on the market. A solar water heater can either make use of
- The heat from the sun’s direct radiation by using flat plate collectors or evacuated tubes; or
- It can make use the heat in the air warmed by the sun
This type of solar hot water heater is a heat pump water heater, which uses a reverse application of the technology of your refrigerator, so it heats rather than cools.
Hot water systems that exploit the sun’s energy either from radiation onto panels or tubes, or convection by drawing air through fin coils will save you a lot on your energy bills, around $600 per year depending on your location, heat pump model and hot water use.
