What Is a Heat Pump Water System?

How can you save up to 65% less energy heating water in your business? Simply by installing a heat water pump system with EcoSaver in your Australian premises, you can provide consistent hot water throughout the day whilst reducing the carbon footprint of your business.

Read on to discover the numerous benefits that heat pumps can have for your business, both financially and environmentally.

What Is a Heat Pump Hot Water System?

Commercial heat pumps use electricity to transfer heat from one area to another, instead of directly heating the water like traditional sources.


By using electricity to heat your water, you will not use sources of energy such as coal, oil and gas, each of which emits significant carbon emissions.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Pump hot water systems work in a similar way to a refrigerator, albeit in reverse. 

An air-source heat pump attracts warmth from the air through a fan, regardless of the air temperature. The condenser coil then transfers heat to the water stored in the tank, utilising the compression of warm air. 

The transferred heat will heat the water at a much higher temperature than the original warm air, however, providing you with the hot water you need. The hot water is then circulated to every outlet, such as taps.

Here is a step-by-step diagram showing you exactly how a heat pump will work for you:

Step 1

You must have an available cold water supply in your water system, stored in the storage tank.

Step 2

The fan draws in air from the outside and can extract any heat from the air, regardless of the temperature.

Step 4

The warm air is compressed in the water tank, resulting in a sharp increase in temperature that creates hot water.

Step 5

Once the water is hot, it will be circulated around your premises to each available outlet, such as bathrooms and kitchens.

What Is the Purpose of Heat Pump Water Heaters?

The purpose of heat pump water heaters is to act as a heat exchanger to provide hot water across your premises by generating heat, originally sourced from the surrounding air.

Heat pumps are used as an environmentally friendly way to heat water in your home. Traditionally, coal, gas and oil are used to generate hot water across Australia. However, this is not sustainable and results in high carbon emissions.

As a renewable source of energy, heat pumps emit a much lower rate of carbon emissions, using electricity as the foundation of the energy source.

Why Should I Install a Heat Pump?

Installing a heat pump can help your company to lower its carbon footprint and use a greater level of renewable energy sources. Your company has a responsibility to take action to improve its carbon responsibility under the Paris Accord Treaty 2050. 

Australians as a whole used over 66 thousand gigalitres of water during 2022, with businesses using a greater share than average, particularly if your business operates in the manufacturing industry. You could use up to 65% less energy heating water on your premises with a hot water heat pump.

As well as addressing your environmental responsibilities and reducing your carbon emissions with renewable energy, you can also reduce your running costs, financially benefiting your business.

What Are the Benefits of Heat Pump Water Heaters?

The benefits of heat pump water systems range from environmental advantages to financial benefits. Here are the top 5 benefits of using a heat pump water heater:

1. Lower Costs

Once you are using a heat pump to provide hot water on your premises, you will experience lower running costs. Over time, this will save you a vast amount of money to financially benefit your business.

2. Lower Emissions

When using electricity to operate the heat pump, your emissions are much lower than when using traditional water heating systems that require gas, oil or coal.

3. Sustainability

As you are using a renewable energy source, you are invoking a sustainable fuel source for your premises.

4. Efficiency

Heat pump water systems are efficient and will provide hot water on a continuous basis to your premises. A heat pump is also a quiet way of generating heat and does not require fuel storage.

5. Long Life

You can expect a longer life from a heat pump system than from a traditional boiler, providing a lifespan of between 20 to 25 years. You can also enjoy low maintenance costs by using a heat pump on your premises.

Are There Different Types of Heat Pumps?

Whilst there are different choices of system, each type of heat pump generates hot water on a continuous basis.

Here are the top 2 types of heat pump offered to you by EcoSaver:

1. All-In-One

An All-In-One heat pump provides your premises with both heating and cooling capabilities, in addition to a backup electric heater. As well as heating water consistently, this tool provides air conditioning in a packaged system.

2. Split System

The Split System heat pump provides separate units for heating and for air conditioners whilst also including a backup electric heater for your convenience.
