Heat pumps are the hot-ticket item for this winter. Combined with solar and battery storage they smash power bills.
In simple terms heat pumps harvest the air while solar panels are harvesting the sun.
Add battery storage and you get the ultimate in low-cost hot water with maximum green energy savings.
Heat pumps are an excellent replacement for old electric hot water systems as they can usually be fitted to existing plumbing.
Sharpe Energy Hub recommends households weigh up the cost of continuing with an old, inefficient electric or gas heating system versus the latest heat pump technology.
A heat pump is at least three times as efficient as a traditional electric or gas heater. In other words its produces many times the amount of renewable energy than the electricity required to power it.
A heat pump operates in the reverse to a refrigerator. It transfers the warmth in the air outside the unit to the water stored inside through a heat exchange system. Basically it is moving heat rather than generating heat and this is where the cost savings lie.
One of Sharpe’s most popular hot water heat pumps is the EvoHeat Evo270, which is compatible with battery power, such as the Tesla Powerwall 2.
The Evo 270 is compact and easy to install. Its monitoring app allows the homeowner to manage its operation to achieve best performance and cost savings.
The new generation of water and house heaters is eligible for Government-backed, zero-dollars-upfront finance, offered through the Clean Energy Finance Corporation. This is a great option for those who want to fast-track their green transition but don’t want to touch savings or credit cards.
Sharpe Energy Hub consultants can talk through the all the options, including finance.
All systems are installed and serviced by Sharpe’s own technicians, not subcontractors, to give reassurance regarding warranties and guarantees.
