Exploring the Benefits of Heat Pumps in Adelaide

The experts at Solar Power Direct, based in Adelaide, Australia, have the know-how and skills to provide you with this guide to electrical heat pumps. In this article, we briefly go over what electric heat pumps are, how they interact with your hot water systems and the major environmental and economic benefits of installing one in your home. Contact our team if you have any questions.

What are Electric Heat Pumps?

To put it simply, an electric heat pump uses electricity to move heat from one place to another. Instead of generating heat directly, it pulls heat from the air surrounding it and either transfers it straight indoors, or into a storage tank. Water kept in storage tanks is heated up and kept at a relatively high temperature, ready for use.

Cost Effective

Heat pumps in Adelaide homes can help to save on energy costs and output. Because they simply move heat from one place to another instead of generating it themselves, they run on less energy than other options such as gas.

Pumps can create up to 10-15 times as much energy as they use. To capitalise on the energy production, they can also act similarly to regular batteries, as you can use your heat pumps to keep electricity stored up and access it when it’s cheaper to do so.

Solar Power Direct sells heat pumps from elite brands at reasonable prices, so you can save money in both the short and long term.

Good for the Environment

As they quite often use renewable sources of electricity, such as solar, and don’t directly burn or utilise fossil fuels such as gas or coal, heat pumps are a great way to improve your environmental impact. They also lend themselves to improved air quality, both inside and outside your home.
