Product Detail

Overview

An electric heat pump system, for generating hot water, suitable for domestic purpose.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The EcoSmart Heat Pump hot water systems utilise latent heat in the air, to heat water.  They are available in a 250L storage capacity only.

The heat pump system contains extremely cold liquid refrigerant, which travels through a copper pipe. The air passing through this evaporator contains latent heat which is absorbed by the refrigerant. A compressor then pulls the refrigerant inside where it is compressed.  As the pressure rises, the temperature increases. From here the refrigerant travels to the condenser, where the heat from the refrigerant is transferred to the water tank.  Finally an expansion valve provides the pressure reduction to the refrigerant and the cycle starts again.

This system is a highly efficient method of heating water, and it uses only a small amount of the electricity a conventional electric hot water system uses.
