Hot Water Heat Pumps Ltd
Performance Plus Swimming Pool & Spa Hot Water Heat Pump
If you’re thinking about building a pool or spa, or maybe you’re looking at heating your existing installation, then talk to us about the Performance Plus Hot Water Heat Pump.
HOW DOES A PERFORMANCE PLUS HEAT PUMP WATER HEATER WORK? - Powered by electricity, a Performance Plus heat pump water heater is like a fridge working in reverse, using ‘free heat’ extracted from ambient air which is then efﬁciently transferred to the water. The electrical input does not generate heat but instead, moves the free heat to the water. Hot water heat pumps are incredibly energy efﬁcient compared to other forms of heating. Government agency EECA (Energy Efﬁciency Conservation Authority) has listed heat pumps as one of the most energy efﬁcient forms of heating in New Zealand.
OPERATION AND EFFICIENCY - A Performance Plus heat pump will ensure a set temperature in your swimming pool or spa regardless of external weather conditions. When properly sized, it can maintain any desired pool temperature between 26°C and 30°C and spas up to 40°C. A Performance Plus heat pump will also operate in ambient temperatures from -10°C to 45°C. When the ambient temperature falls below 6°C, ice can form on the evaporator coils. Using an
electronic de-ice controller our Performance Plus heat pump water heaters automatically initiate a de-ice cycle when required to ensure maximum water heating is available at all times, even in the cold winter months.
LOW RUNNING COSTS - Due to their high energy efﬁciency, our Performance Plus heat pump water heaters have an extremely low cost of operation. Typically, for every 2kW of electric input, you receive 10kW worth of heat. While the initial investment in a heat pump may be larger than some alternative heating solutions, the long term savings on energy use are far greater. The graph above illustrates the cost savings that can be made in comparison to other heat sources.
CLEAN AND GREEN - Because heat pumps use renewable energy (air), they are safer and cleaner to run than fossil fuel burners and can lower C02 emissions by up to 70% (compared to gas and diesel burners). With a long product life expectancy and with today’s use of certiﬁ ed ozone-safe refrigerants, heat pumps are the natural choice for making our planet a cleaner, greener environment for the future generation.
SAFETY FIRST - All Performance Plus heat pump water heaters are ﬁ fitted with protection systems to prevent damage in the event of a malfunction. In the case of our swimming pool heat pumps, our ﬂ ow switches ensure the heat pump cannot operate without water ﬂ ow. If a problem is identiﬁed, the unit automatically shuts down before damage can occur.
SUPERIOR CONSTRUCTION - All Performance Plus heat pump water heaters are designed and engineered to perform all year round, even in New Zealand’s harshest environments. Heavy gauge galvanised steel cabinetry with a polyester powder coat ﬁnish provides superior corrosion resistance. The aluminium ﬁ ns are epoxy coated providing extra protection in coastal areas where the air is salt-laden. The coil ﬁ ns are on riﬂ ed copper tubes for even better heat transfer. All Performance Plus heat pump water heaters are ﬁtted with our selected titanium tube heat exchanger, with the titanium tubes providing superior resistance against corrosion. The heat exchangers are selected in-house by our qualiﬁ ed technicians, to match with the correct speciﬁ cations for the Performance Plus range of heat pump water heaters. This is essential, as undersized heat exchangers reduce the heat pump performance and increase running costs.
