Navigating the Maze of Hot Water Heat Pump Systems: A Cautionary Tale

In the sea of options for heat pump hot water cylinders flooding the market, choosing the right one can be like finding a needle in a haystack. Allow me to offer a word of caution: not all models are created equal.

Amidst the claims of super efficiency and promising savings, I’ve learned through experience that reality can fall short when your hot water system doesn’t perform as expected. Picture this: the allure of savings quickly fades away when you’re greeted with unexpectedly chilly showers.

Some models prioritize efficiency through a snail-paced recovery of hot water, a feature that sounds good in theory but falls flat for the average Kiwi family. After all, who has time to wait around for hot water?

When it comes to investing in a Heat Pump Hot Water Heater, it’s imperative to seek sound advice. Choosing the BEST model is key to ensuring you’re not left in the cold with underperforming systems.

At Regency Plumbing, we’re committed to guiding you toward the ideal Heat Pump Hot Water Heater that suits your needs and promises the performance you deserve.

Choosing the Best Heat Pump Hot Water Cylinders

Determining the best heat pump hot water cylinder revolves around understanding your daily hot water consumption.

The key factor lies in ample hot water storage capacity.

For those using significant amounts of hot water, storage volume becomes critical due to slower hot water recovery compared to traditional electric cylinders.

While some models boast extreme efficiency and cost savings, the reality might differ. These models may emphasize savings but fail to mention their slower hot water recovery time—taking about 10 or 11 hours to replenish the tank fully. This efficiency might not be so great when faced with a lack of hot water for evening chores.

Personal experience with an earlier model installed at my home proved frustrating, leading to frequent instances of running out of hot water.

Rheem Heat Pump Hot Water Cylinder: A Reliable Choice

When it comes to heat pump hot water cylinders, the Rheem model stands out as a commendable option based on our extensive installation experience.

Heavy Duty Performance:

The latest generation of electric water heaters, Rheem’s offering boasts an impressive 310-litre storage capacity and an accelerated recovery rate.

Glenn’s Testimonial: A Glowing Recommendation

Glenn from Kingseat, Auckland, enthusiastically commended the ECOPLUS Hot Water Heat Pump System with one word: “Brilliant!”

Glenn’s Experience: “Hi guys, Many thanks for a job well done. The job was executed to an impeccable standard by professionals clearly at the top of their trade. It was quite a delight to hear the tradesmen humming tunes while they worked—a reflection of their upbeat mood that resonated in the finished product. The attention to detail in the pipework, wiring, isolating switch, and the overall finish looked exceptionally neat compared to its predecessor. It was a nice touch being given a tour of the completed installation by the tradesmen, providing a quick rundown of its form and function once they finished.”

Glenn was thoroughly impressed by the system’s performance: “I’m amazed by the quiet operation of the unit, and its functionality is almost unbelievable. Within just five minutes of switching on the system, the water flowing from the tap was warm enough for a shower (no wonder they claim an 80% savings). I’m eagerly looking forward to monitoring power bills compared to the previously more expensive solar system it replaced! Oh, and I almost forgot to mention—the shower pressure has notably increased post-installation—a significant bonus!”

Glenn’s glowing endorsement highlights the remarkable efficiency and superior performance of the ECOPLUS Hot Water Heat Pump System, which stands as a testament to the collaborative efforts of Rheem and Sanden—the experts who crafted this exceptional unit.
