Why Choose Sanden for your Electric Hot Water ?
Hot Water Systems and Energy Costs
In Australia we pay more for electricity than most places in the developed world, and it’s no wonder. With the recent introduction of the carbon tax, combined with the building of new electricity infrastructure, many commentators suggest that this could result in soaring electricity costs for consumers.
Because traditional hot water systems contribute to a significant portion of a household’s energy costs, taking control of the situation starts with seeking the most efficient hot water system on the market.
Energy Savings with the Sanden Hot Water Heat Pump System
A Sanden Hot Water Heat Pump uses industry-leading technology found in refrigeration and air conditioning units, where energy is drawn in from the ambient atmosphere and transferred into heat. An Ozone friendly refrigerant R744 (CO2) absorbs the heat, which then flows into a compressor where it’s converted into a high-temperature gas. Then, it passes through a condenser within the water tank and the water is heated up. No backup elements are required.
The result is a system that requires radically less electricity to heat water when compared to conventional hot water systems. In fact, the initiative will save up to 78 per cent on a hot water bill, year after year. And no, it doesn’t involve cold showers!
Less energy, less impact on the environment, more savings.
Sanden’s “Eco®” Hot Water Heat Pump technology uses 1kW of energy to generate 4.5kW of heat; this is 78 per cent less energy compared to traditional hot water systems. When considering that further electricity price hikes of 30 per cent by 2013 are set to hit households, which have already suffered a 40 per cent rise in electricity prices in the 3 years to 2010, it becomes the best, financially sustainable option on the market.
Environmentally Friendly Hot Water
As an environmentally advanced product, it is also affordable. The system is ranked alongside solar energy in terms of environmental friendliness and as such it is eligible for rebates and other government incentives. It offers the highest level of Small scale Technology Certificates (STCs) of any hot water heat pump system, saving you hundreds at the outset.
Easy Hot Water System Installation
The split system is easy to install, much like a conventional electric system, and features flexible tank location. The heat pump and a separate tank can be located up to 4 metres apart. The 315-litre stainless steel tank is fully insulated for minimal heat loss and has been mains pressure rated. It has an automatic heating cycle, ideal for use with off-peak power and a 15-year Tank Warranty for long term savings. Compared with a conventional electric system, Sanden’s heat pump features up to 50 per cent faster heat recovery. In ambient air of 20 degrees it takes just 4 hours to heat 315 litres of water from 17 degrees to 65 degrees. An in-built freeze protection makes hot water heat pump system suitable for all of Australia’s climates throughout the entire year.
Sanden Heat Pump – Whisper Quiet Operation
The heat pump unit features a whisper quiet operation, making it neighbourhood friendly as well. In a time of escalating energy costs, the most energy efficient and quietest hot water heat pump system, that is also environmentally sound, is a first-rate choice for every household.
