FAQs about heat pump hot water systems
What is the best heat pump hot water system in Australia?
To be the best heat pump hot water heater available in Australia, the heat pump needs to have a proven reputation over many decades, be installed in large quantities, have good after-sales service, likely use CO2 as its refrigerant gas, and work in very cold climates. Unfortunately, there are no heat pumps that meet all these criteria in every part of Australia. At present, we would recommend Quantum, EvoHeat and Reclaim hot water heat pumps in Canberra. We will install other brands such as Stiebel Eltron, Rinnai and Rheem if requested.

For standalone homes, the answer is, ‘Yes, heat pumps work in Canberra, but not always.’ For a compact heat pump hot water heater to work efficiently all year round in Canberra and Queanbeyan, it must be installed outside, on a north or west-facing wall, in a location with ample airflow. A split system heat pump hot water system like the Sandon, Reclaim or Quantum Titan can have the storage tank installed remotely from the compressor unit. The compressor unit must be installed in the warmest location with the best airflow. In winter, it may take 9 hours and approx. 12 kilowatts of power to heat a full tank of hot water to 65°C.

Do hot water heat pumps work in cold climates?
Most heat pumps will work in cold climates. However, they will not produce as much hot water at the same temperature and in the same time frame as they would if they were installed in warmer climates. Winter weather will reduce the quantity and the temperature of hot water produced when compared to warmer seasons. Heat pumps in Canberra do work. However, you should speak to an experienced and ethical installer before rushing into buying a heat pump.
