INTEGRATED HEAT PUMPS
A sophisticated, energy-saving solution for private homes.
The HydraTherm integrated heat pump is essentially a hot water cylinder (geyser) with a super energy-efficient heat pump (instead of a conventional electric element) as its heating source. The heat pump is mounted on top of the water tank and heats the water by moving heat from the surrounding air to the water, by means of a compressor and an air-to-water heat exchanger.
Heat pumps are commonly compared to air-conditioners operating in reverse – where an air-conditioner transfers heat from the air inside a room to the atmosphere outside, a heat pump transfers heat from the air around it to the water in the geyser.
With the look of an ultra-modern domestic refrigerator, this high-tech water heater integrates beautifully into the architecture and aesthetics of any home.
The centrifugal fan assembly and egg carton style sponge noise damping material used, reduces the overall sound level to just +-45dBa. This translates to less than the sound of human speech or even a domestic refrigerator.
The HydraTherm Integrated heat pump features high density 50mm polyurethane insulation to ensure the
absolute minimum heat loss possible. And because it uses less than a third of the energy of an ordinary geyser, it qualifies for installation in terms of SANS 10400XA and XA2.
