  • Quiet operation, with no unsightly solar collectors on the roof.
  • Retro-fitted to your existing or new geyser

Automatic Hot Water Control

Your existing geyser is switched OFF and your new Heat Pump takes over. Set the indoor mounted controller at 60°C and your water will be automatically controlled all year round. No need to set the timer, but if required first consult your installer to ensure optimum efficiency.

How it Works

A heat pump extracts heat from the surrounding air and transfers it efficiently to the water in your geysers to a temperature of 60°C. On an average South African day the heat pump will use 1kW of electricity energy to produce up to 4kW of heating energy. Compare this to your electrical geyser that consumes 4kW of electrical energy to produce 4kW of heating energy. Your heat pump runs effectively between -10°C and 43°C ambient temperature. But during severe winter conditions a Heat Pump will take longer to reach 60°C.
