How do heat pump hot water systems work?

The heat pump hot water system works in a similar way to the operating system of your fridge or air-conditioner, but instead of pushing the heat out, it draws the heat in the warm the cold water collected in the tank. Because hot water needs to be at a constant temperature of at least 60 degrees to keep out infections and keep in the warmth, the heat pump systems sometimes need a little kick. These systems are usually connected to an electrical booster that warms up when the temperature drops, but there are gas options available as well, which are the both the more cost-efficient and more environmentally friendly option.

The verdict
