Heat Pump

Electricity Consumption is only used to transfer heat from the surrounding environment, such as air. The heat pump has the ability to absorb heat (not create heat) and transfer heat by means of refrigerant, which captures the heat in the ambient air and transfers it to heat water.

The fan on the heat pump circulates air through the outer evaporator that acts as the heat collector. The liquid refrigerant in the evaporator absorbs the available heat in the ambient air, transforming it into refrigerant. The refridgerant is then pumped into a compressor. When this warm refrigerant is compressed, it intensifies or concentrates the heat, similar to a magnifying glass in the sun.

This intensely hot refridgerant is then pumper into a heat exchanger condensor where the actual heat transfer takes place. As the water passes through the heat exchanger, the hot gas gives up its heat to the cooler water. The refridgerant returns to a liquid state and is pumped through an expansion valve and then into an evaporator air coil, which starts the process over again.

A Properly fitted Heat Pump can save up to 75% of your water heating bill.
