A heat pump is a highly efficient, cost effective method of heating water. It utilises the sun's free energy by extracting heat from the sun-warmed air, by means of the refrigeration cycle; increases the temperature of the water, through compression and transfers the heat to water by means of a heat exchanger.
In other words, it uses the warmth in the surrounding air to heat water!
Because the heat pump moves the “free” heat from the outside air to the water, rather than create heat, as a fossil fuel or electric resistance heater does, it can heat your geyser water for up to 70% less cost than these other less efficient methods. As the ambient temperatures change, the heating output of a heat pump will vary. However, even when temperatures are cooler the heat pump continues to transfer heat between air and water.
SIRAC heat pumps are designed to operate between -15°c and 45°c ambient temperature.

Heat Pumps can be used for your water water requirements in your home, your work place, hotels, larger industrial plants, mines, gyms, home or public swimming pool.
