EcoSpring Heat Pump Hot Water Cylinders work much like a fridge but in reverse. They harness the ambient temperature in the air, multiplying this energy to heat the water at a fraction of the operating costs of a traditional hot water cylinder.
A fan pulls in air containing heat energy, across the evaporator.
The evaporator turns the liquid refrigerant into a gas.
The compressor converts refrigerant into high temp / high-pressure gas.
The hot gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the tank.
The refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after heating the water & returns back to the evaporator for the process to start again.
A heat pump is like an energy amplifier. From 1 kW of power input, it can create over 3.6kW of output heat. That’s a performance efficiency of over a remarkable 300%. Conventional electric storage water heaters can only convert 1 kW of input power into 1 kW of output heat.
