Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters
Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters extract ambient heat stored in the air to heat water. Unlike solar water heating systems, Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters are less dependent on weather and operates throughout the year even during long winter nights.
Easy to install and cost effective, a Heat Pump Hot Water Heater is a great way to provide hot water for the home, underfloor heating, spas or swimming pools. The only energy used by a Heat Pump Hot Water Heaters is electricity to power the pumps but delivering on average three times as much thermal energy (heat).

Thermagenius can be integrated with existing under floor heating, other home hydronic heating systems or existing hot water heating systems. Thermagenius also comes with an intelligent controller allowing users to manage operation of their system including timers for “on and/or off” functions, and features to integrate with other heating devices such as solar or backup electricity.
Because of its unique design and construction, Thermagenius is guaranteed against material or manufacturing defects for 5 years.
Thermagenius comes as an outdoor unit complete with a 270 litre hot water cylinder. You can find out more about Hot Water Heat Pumps at eHotwater.com.au
On a regular workday the home uses 8.47 units of electricity to heat water. Assuming the hot water usage remains constant and that the average energy cost remains at 28.5 cents per kilowatt, the household spends $881 a year on hot water heating.
The Thermagenius heat pump water heating unit uses less than a third of the electricity, yet produces more heating than a standard 3kW electric element. Assuming that this ‘coefficient of performance’ remains constant, then the Thermagenius would save this particular house $638 a year.
With an estimated installed price of $3995, the payback period is just under eight years (even less if renewable energy credits apply to your installation). With more adults, and in a family less water conscious, this payback period will keep dropping.
The unit has a Watermark, and has an expected life in excess of 15 years. The hot water cylinder inside the unit is enamel-lined and the heat exchanger (moves heat from the heat pump to the water) is built into the cylinder wall instead of inside the cylinder. This completely eliminates any risk of galvanic corrosion and possible contamination of your water.
How would your client’s house measure up? If they do hot water laundry, if their showers are full pressure or if they have more showers or have baths as well, then their payback period would be even shorter.
The Thermagenius is quiet (52db(A) at 3m), uses around a third of the power of an electric hot water heater and by going outside it saves a whole bunch of storage space ). This also makes it easy to convert from on-demand gas. It’s good for your wallet and it’s good for the environment.
