How does a Heat Pump Work?

A Sanden Hot Water Heat Pump uses industry-leading technology found in refrigeration and air conditioning units, 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. No backup elements are required.

The result is a system that requires radically less electricity to heat water when compared to conventional resistance electric hot water systems. In fact, the heat pump can save you up to 78 per cent on your hot water bill, year after year. And no, it doesn’t involve cold showers!
