Why would you choose an EcoPlus Heat Pump Hot Water System?

Well it just makes sense. If you can save up to 80%* of your electric storage hot water energy costs, year after year! why wouldn’t you make the switch.

When you consider how much cost relates to the average household’s energy costs from your conventional hot water cylinder, taking control of the situation, and finding the most efficient hot water system on the market, has got to be a great starting point.

Energy Savings with the EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System

The savings are proving to be rock solid, and are not to be scoffed at.
The EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System uses industry-leading technology, where energy is drawn in from the ambient atmosphere and transferred into heat. An Ozone friendly refrigerant R744 (CO2) absorbs the heat, which then flows into a compressor where it’s converted into a high-temperature gas. Then, it passes through a condenser within the water tank and the water is heated up.

The most amazing thing is no backup element booster is required, and it still heats plenty of hot water. This is a radical improvement on some of the earlier hot water heat pump systems.

Based on recent testing it was found that the EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System could save you a significant amount of money on your heating costs compared to the conventional electric storage hot water cylinder. In fact, this system will save you up to 80%* of your hot water energy costs, year after year. And the beauty is, that in all the testing I have been privy to, no one has ended up with cold showers. This is really impressive as the earlier models made by other manufacturers also saved money, but struggled to deliver enough hot water for many NZ families.

The EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System technology uses 0.84kW^^ of energy to generate 4.99kW of heat; this is 80 per cent less energy compared to traditional hot water systems. When considering that electricity price hikes will continue to hit households year after year, it becomes the best, financially sustainable option on the market.

We have now just fitted our second EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System in NZ for customers and the results are brilliant. There are a few design criteria’s that must be met, specific to the EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System. The heat pump and the separate storage tank or hot water cylinder can be located up to 15 metres apart horizontally or 3 metres vertically, but no further. The 2 units we have just installed were both installed side by side, and i’m sure most will end up that way, especially for retrofit installations, however they can be installed apart. The Rheem stainless steel storage tanks are fully insulated for minimal heat loss, are built to mains pressure requirements, and are designed to go inside or outside, giving plenty of flexibility. The Sanden heat pump itself must go outside.

Compared with a conventional electric system, Sanden’s heat pump features up to 50 per cent faster heat recovery. In ambient air of 20 degrees it takes just 4 hours to heat 315 litres of water from 17 degrees (C) to 63 degrees (C). An in-built freeze protection makes the hot water heat pump system suitable for all of NZ’s climates throughout the entire year.

We are well impressed so far with the EcoPlus Hot Water Heat Pump System. After experiencing one of the early models made by a different group that was installed in my family home in Karaka, it was certainly far from what anyone would consider to be a great option. It was noisy and couldn’t deliver enough hot water, the recovery was simply too slow, and then when we fitted the after market booster element it destroyed the efficiency savings. So to be able to finally install heat pump hot water systems we can stand behind and be confident in is great from an installers point of view.

      Hi Judy, we are based in Auckland and cover most of the North Island, but not Dunedin. If you call Rheem, they will give you the nearest installer to you.
      We had a special running last year – installed price of $7987 inc GST. You should be able to get one fitted for something like this, providing of course that the installation is relatively simple.
      Thanks for asking anyway, and I hope this helps a bit, Regards Regan.

        Hi Robert, that’s a good question… lots if we have to come down.
        There is a company that does the installs in the South Island.
        Maybe just check with Rheem, or google Ecoplus South Island.
        We do from Taupo North, including Auckland and Northland.
        Thanks, Regan
