Heat pump hot water upgrade: No more running out of hot water

The invention of heat pumps in the 1850s created a fork in the road of energy efficiency. This technology not only increased energy efficiency manifold, it also allowed the use of heat pump technology for different purposes like space heating and cooling and water heating.

Despite being more than half a century old, the tech only got popular in the first decade of the 21st century.

Use of heat pump technology in air-sourced heat pump water heating is particularly significant, as Australian homeowners and businesses pay about 25 percent of the total energy bills for water heating.

An energy-efficient air-source based heat pump water heating system can reduce the water heating cost by over 50 percent.

As the Australian government has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs) to zero by 2050, reducing emissions through energy efficiency upgrades, such as gas/conventional water heater to energy-efficient heat pump powered water heating system, is going to be a key piece in solving the net-zero jigsaw puzzle.
