How do heat pump hot water systems work?
Hot water systems using heat pumps work by extracting heat from the surrounding air, using this to heat the water. They work like a reverse refrigerator, extracting warm air instead of cold which means they also have more moving parts. Heat pumps do not rely on sunlight or fuels to provide the energy to heat the water, so they are a great option for those who are wanting to save energy consumption and reduce their carbon footprint.
Although they have lower greenhouse emissions, they have a higher upfront cost of installation and maintenance can be costly too because of more moving parts. They tend to work more efficiently with less problems in warmer climates where they don’t need to work as hard to extract the heat.
