Hot water heat pumps: the most efficient water heating solution.

According to the SA Government, heating water accounts for 23% of the energy used at an average household. A hot water heat pump is a great idea for when you are after a cost- and energy efficient way of heating the water at your home.

Kozco collaborates with Stiebel Eltron, a German founded brand that produces high-quality hot water systems for domestic use. Their hot water systems utilise air to generate energy. Using as little as 0.55 kW per hour, making them a cost-efficient solution for water heating all year round. Plus – they are PV-ready, so you can connect them to your solar system.

How does it work?

Stiebel Eltron has been in business for 95 years, using an innovative state-of-the-art technique to heat water. The system works as follows:

  1. A fan draws in air through an evaporator. Thermal energy within the air in transferred into a liquid refrigerant causing it to change into gas.
  2. The refrigerant gas is then drawn into a compressor which increases the pressure and, as a result, increases the temperature.
  3. A condenser (heat exchanger) then transports gaseous refrigerant around the outside of the water cylinder. This heats the water inside and the gaseous refrigerant reverts back into a liquid.
  4. The pressure of the refrigerant is reduced as it goes through an expansion valve and returns to the evaporator for the process to start all over again.

The hot water heat pumps come in two sizes, with a 220 or 302 litre capacity.

Rebates and purchase support

As with solar, battery storage and air conditioners, the Australian government offers rebates in the form of STC’s when purchasing a hot water heating system. When you are on a low income, you might be eligible for a No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) to assist you with purchase costs. View this link by the Government of South Australia to find out more.
