Solar Heat Pump
If you want the benefits of solar but without the roof panels then a heat pump hot water system could be for you. Australian owned EcoSmart® Solar Heat Pump hot water systems effortlessly capture latent heat energy abundant in the air and transfer that heat energy to a storage tank.
You’ll cut your energy bills and help save the environment.

Calculations are based on EcoSmart 2AP style collector. STC calculations for gas boosted units are based on Continuous Tariff. STC values are subject to change without notice and are correct at April 2013.
The EcoSmart patented Heat Transfer Technology (HTT) is unlike other heat pump models in the market, EcoSmart’s heat exchange coil is directly immersed within the water.
This unique technology reduces heat loss and improves heat transfer - no wonder the EcoSmart system is the most efficient compact domestic heat pump. It has one of the highest STC values when compared against comparable systems!
The principle is very similar to the operation of a refrigerator, but in reverse. There is latent heat energy in the air and this is transferred to the heating system.
The heat pump system contains extremely cold liquid refrigerant, which travels through a copper pipe. The air passing through this evaporator contains latent heat which is absorbed by the refrigerant. A compressor then pulls the refrigerant inside where it is naturally compressed.
As the pressure rises, the temperature increases. From here the refrigerant travels to the condenser, where the heat from the refrigerant is transferred to the water tank.
Heat Pump hot water systems produce significantly less greenhouse gas emissions than electric storage systems.
Once your EcoSmart™ hot water system is installed you may be eligible for government incentives. This may make EcoSmart an even more cost effective option.
And here's the good news, and EcoSmart™ hot water system can provide up to 70% annual savings* on your water heating costs*. Your EcoSmart™ system will pay for itself in no time.
