/// Heat pumps
Heat pumps are the efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to solar heating.This alternative trend in water heating works on the reverse principle of that of an air conditioner, extracting ambient heat from the atmosphere to heat the refrigerant, which is then pumped into a heat exchange condenser to heat water in a domestic electric water heater or solar water heater. The end result is water heated for approximately one third of the electrical usage of an electric water heater. The free environmental energy extracted from the ambient heat, provides approximately 75% of the heat pumps energy thus heating water at a third of the normal cost.
Kwik Pumps (Kwikot) are available for 100lt to 250lt electric water heaters.
