Heat Pumps

Need an efficient hot water system? Consider a heat pump.

How they work

Heat pump hot water systems work on the same theory as air conditioning units & refrigerators - by absorbing heat from the surrounding air and transferring that energy into the water. You are using free energy from the environment that doesn’t cost a cent, and at the same time reducing your carbon footprint. The heat pump will operate in outdoor temperature as low as 4°Celsius.

Advantages of Heat Pumps

  • No panels required
  • No tank on roof
  • More efficient than electricity and LPG gas hot water systems
  • Doesn't matter which way your roof is facing

Disadvantages of Heat Pumps

  • Less efficient than solar
  • Slower recovery time
  • Heat pump units are noiser than solar, gas or electric


Connected Plumbgas can supply and install hot water heat pumps, and recommends Rheem, Quantum and Dux heat pumps.
