It was approximately 8 years ago that the government introduced incentives to have a Heat Pump hot water service installed to homes and businesses. It is now that majority of these systems are coming out of there warranty periods and the tanks are starting burst open. This is leaving the home owners and business owners in a position where they now need to consider their options for another 8 years, replace with another heat pump or swap back to dedicated electric water heaters on J tariff.
Well in most cases the choice is very clear, revert to the electric storage water heaters and ensure they are wired up on off peak electrical. The reason for this is that the heat pump water systems are extremely expensive to purchase without the huge government rebates any more. Unfortunately, many customers didn’t have a good experience with the overall heat pump operations, many complaining about excessive noise and un reliable refrigeration components located either on top or at the front bottom.
What is the advantage to changing back to a conventional 250L electric hot water service? The tanks now come with an optional 10-year warranty, you only need a licensed plumber to service these during the heaters life (not a refrigeration mechanic and plumber), they are silent in operation and can be installed in discrete locations with zero ventilation such as laundry cabinets and under kitchen benches (sizes may vary).
The range of manufacturers who produce these systems for the Adelaide Plumbing market is also far wider than previously experienced. Manufacturers such as Aqua MAX, Rinnai, Rheem, Vulcan, DUX Stiebel Eltron and Thermann all provide systems in various sizes with options on warranty periods, the choices are set up to suit most budgets.
