Imagine heating your water with the same technology that cools your home! That's the magic behind heat pump water heaters. These innovative appliances work like air conditioners in reverse, extracting heat from the surrounding air to warm the water in your geyser.

So, why ditch your old geyser for a heat pump? Here are some compelling reasons:

  • Slash your electricity bill:  Heat pumps are energy ninjas, using up to 75% less energy than traditional electric geysers. This translates to significant savings on your monthly electricity bill.

  • 24/7 Hot Water, Rain or Shine: Unlike solar geysers, which rely on sunshine, heat pumps deliver hot water around the clock, regardless of the weather. Cloudy days? No problem!

  • Eco-Friendly Choice: Heat pumps use electricity, but significantly less than traditional geysers. This translates to a smaller carbon footprint and a greener you.

But wait, there's more!  Heat pumps are a perfect partner for your existing solar power setup.

Here's why:

  • Heat Pumps Love Solar Power:  The beauty of heat pumps is their low power consumption. This means they can be efficiently powered by your inverter/battery/PV solar system. During the day, excess solar energy can be directed towards powering your heat pump, further reducing your reliance on the grid.

  • Double Down on Savings:  By combining a heat pump with solar power, you're getting the best of both worlds: energy efficiency and solar power generation. This can lead to even greater savings on your water heating costs.

Let's talk numbers:

Imagine you currently spend R1000 per month on heating water with an electric geyser. Switching to a heat pump could save you between R500 and R750 monthly, translating to annual savings of R6000 to R9000. Couple this with solar power, and those savings could increase even further!
