Geyser heat pump technology is one of the cutting edge technologies when it comes to renewable energy water heating products.

This technology has been used in South Africa for heating water for many years, the recent increase in international demand has brought the component costs down, making the product extremely affordable for the residential and commercial users.

Units incorporate new efficient gases for quick heating and low input energy requirement for decreased running costs. The super range we install for ITS is a great product for running off Solar PV Panels and inverters.

Information

Quiet operation with no solar collectors on the roof

Heat pumps are designed for low operating noise and can be installed on any external wall of the house with adequate ventilation as close to the geyser as possible.

Class leading efficiency ensuring maximum saving

Heat pumps are very energy efficient and save you around 60 – 70% energy consumption as compared to a conventional geyser. All our units are inverter compatible hence can run off a standard inverter due to their low power consumption hence one can heat your geyser with the power of the sun from excess solar PV panel generation.

Can be used in conjunction with solar geysers

Solar geysers and Heat pumps can be used together to create a hybrid system which saves you money all year round.

Environmentally friendly

Heat pumps use the natural heat energy in the ambient air and can therefore reduce the green house gas emissions associated with the use of electricity. They operate on environmentally friendly R410 or R32 gas.

Safe and reliable

Heat pumps have been designed to boast many safety features hence ensuring reliable & safe operation for many years.

Fully automated anti freeze function

Heat pumps can operate in sub-zero temperatures as they can defrost themselves automatically with their build in program protection.

Costs

The Installation cost of a typical geyser heat pump system costs around R23500 depending on the size of the geyser. Running costs will vary depending on a number of factors including the size of your geyser, how well insulated it is and what temperature you set the geyser to heat to.

Savings

How much you can save will depend on the hot water demand, time of year and if you have a solar inverter system installed.

Your savings will be affected by:
  • Your old heating system. If your old heating system was inefficient, you are more likely to see lower running costs with a new heat pump.
  • Water heating. If the heat pump is providing hot water then this could limit the overall efficiency. You might want to consider solar water heating to provide hot water in the summer and help keep your heat pump efficiency up.

Controls

All our new units are WIFI enabled to allow you to control the unit remotely and adjust the energy and temperature required depending on the time of year. Your installer should explain to you how to control the system so you can use it most effectively.
