Consider the following when replacing your heat pump:


  • An electric hot water system still costs you money to install upfront, but continues to cost you more money in rising power prices each quarter of each year it is used. The power supply cannot be controlled well when used with solar power unlike a hot water heat pump .
  • A heat pump hot water system cost a small amount more at the time of purchase, but will save you money each quarter rather then cost you money like an electric storage.
  • Solar hot water heat pumps work extremely well with solar power, you can run the higher quality German units on as little as 550 Watts.
  • Some of the better brands like Stiebel Eltron can be used to store excess solar power by converting it to thermal energy storage when excess power is detected going back to the grid.
