Heat Pump Hot Water

Reduce your hot water bills by up to 80% with a Thermann X “Split” Heat Pump Hot Water System.

The Thermann X Split Heat Pump Hot Water (HPHW) System uses a revolutionary CO2 refrigerant that excels in cooler weather, perfect for Tasmanian conditions. It is so effective it doesn’t even require a back-up heater element!

The Thermann X Split System Heat Pump Hot Water (HPHW) is an extremely energy-efficient replacement for your traditional electric hot water system, often using 80% less electricity to heat the water. It absorbs heat from the air and transfers it to heat water in a way that saves energy, saves money and reduces greenhouse gas emissions.

The Thermann X Split System technology uses 1kW of energy to generate 5kW of heat or more; this is 80 per cent less energy compared to traditional hot water systems. Due to this industry-leading quality and performance, the HPHW attracts the equal highest level of STC’s (Small-scale Technology Certificates, a renewable certificate system that provides a financial incentive) values of any currently available hot water heat pump. Innovative technology allows up to 50% faster heat recovery than standard all-in-one hot water heat pumps, making it ideal for use with either off-peak or continuous tariffs. It also has fantastic warranties, such as a 6-year compressor warranty and a 10-year tank warranty.

Heat Pump Hot Water to Suit Your Needs

The heat pump and a separate tank can be located up to 10 metres apart horizontally or 5 metres vertically. The 315-litre glass-lined tank is fully insulated for minimal heat loss and has been mains pressure rated.

All-in-one HPHW units generally have to be located outside because the tank and heat pump unit are combined, which isn’t practical sometimes. The Thermann X tank can be placed inside or outside, and the outside heat pump unit can be up to 10 metres horizontally away and 4 metres vertically away (although the closer, the better).

At the heart of the Thermann X HPWH system, it uses similar efficient technology as air conditioners, but instead of air-to-air heat transfer, it is air-to-water heat transfer. However, rather than using old, legacy technology, the refrigerant (the chemical that transfers the heat from the heat pump to the tank) is actually carbon dioxide (CO2) under pressure, which is super efficient and much less damaging than regular air conditioning refrigerants.

With remotely-quoted HPHW jobs, we attempt to do a site visit prior to the installation to fully evaluate the job to provide a fixed quotation rather than an estimate. If we aren’t able to attend prior to the installation, we make a number of assumptions, including:

  • Like-for-like replacement of units (old tank is removed, new tank and heat pump put in its place);
  • The outside heat pump unit is ground-mounted within 1 metre of the tank or wall-bracket mounted (ground floor). For additional distance or non-standard installations (e.g. high wall, roof, etc.) then additional labour/material fees apply.
