Experts agree that energy-efficiency and a focus on sustainability will define the homes of the 2020s decade
With water heating the second largest cost in household energy use, bill shock is already triggering a switch to energy-efficient heat pumps.
Adelaide’s Sharpe Energy Hub is at the forefront of this change to a greener future, with hot water heat pumps to suit any application.
“Building or renovating using an eco-friendly focus not only saves money in running costs, it future-proofs the appeal of your property in an ever-more-discerning market,” says Sharpe Energy Hub’s David Sharpe.
“Your house is your biggest investment so it makes sense to consider what the experts are telling us.”
The Federal Department of environment says water heating is the largest source of greenhouse gas emissions, up to 25 per cent from an average Australian home.
It confirms that when a renewable energy source is used, emissions are reduced or even eliminated.
“Hot water heat pumps have a huge role to play,” says Mr Sharpe. “They tick all the boxes for environmentally and financially conscious homeowners.”
This is because they use about 20 per cent of the energy required by a conventional electric hot water system.
All Sharpe Energy-Hub products are highly-rated for efficiency and build quality.
The Evo270 Heat Pump generates 4kW of heat from 1kW of energy, saving up to 75 per cent on hot water costs.
The result is even better if the house has solar panels.
In simple terms a heat pump harvests warm air to heat water while solar panels are harvesting the sun to provide the power.
Sharpe Energy Hub has consultants ready to explain the benefits of heat pumps and the rebates available from various authorities.
