SA Heat pumps
SA Heat pumps are powered by engineers and experts in heating and cooling homes and pools by using renewable energy. Although, many people are using oil or gas-driven heat pumps that contribute to a larger carbon footprint on the earth. Solar Guru is proud to provide energy-sufficient SA heat pumps that make use of renewable energy for house, geyser, and pool heating applications.
What is a SA heat pump?
A SA heat pump is an appliance working with two components that include: refrigeration and electricity to provide either heat or cooling for a home or office. A SA heat pump functions by using a condenser unit which is usually placed outside the home that produces the heating or cooling and, a unit mounted to a wall inside the home that passes cool or hot air into the home. SA heat pumps are very efficient by generating hot or cool air at a fraction of the cost. SA heat pumps can be combined with electrical geysers or solar geysers to warm the water effectively. SA heat pumps make use of energy in the air, ground, and water to be converted into heat. Therefore, giving us an infinite amount of energy supply to heat our homes, geysers, pools, and much more. SA heat pumps do save money on energy costs.
How does a SA heat pump work?
A SA heat pump works by transferring heat from one area to another by the means of a small amount of electricity and a refrigerant. For a SA heat pump to produce heat, it extracts heat from the outside air, water, or from the ground. A SA heat pump is installed outside, the condenser unit, where it can obtain the air to convert into heat. The energy in the air accounts for 70% of the energy produced to heat your home or swimming pool. In an example of heating a swimming pool, absorption of the heat in the air is done by the refrigerant gas that moves the heat to the water by using a coil inside the purpose-built tanks. If the water reaches the desired temperature, the SA heat pump will automatically switch off to prevent water from getting too hot. For heating a home, the SA heat pump moves outside air to the refrigeration coolant. The coolant is compressed which helps greatly to increase the temperature. The coolant is then transferred to the indoor unit of the SA heat pump where air passes over the hot coolant, increasing its temperature to accommodate the thermostatic call for heat inside the home.
SA Heat pump electricity costs
Replacing fossil fuel heat pumps with electric SA heat pumps can save you greatly on expenses in comparison. SA heat pumps use a minimal amount of electricity and can even be integrated with a correctly sized solar system to provide electricity to a heat pump. A standard heat pump can use about R1000 per month on your electricity bill if not integrated with solar power. Heat pumps using fossil fuels can use on average about 3028 Litres of fossil fuels to generate heat. This will cost about R57500 per year or R4700 per month. Although SA heat pumps are energy sufficient and do not use a great amount of electricity to produce heat, to save 100% on SA heat pumps, we recommend installing a solar power system to accommodate for even more saving by using energy-efficient SA heat pumps.
SA heat pumps and solar energy
Solar energy can be generated throughout the day by solar panels on your roof that in turn provides electrical power to your home. At night-time, solar batteries provide backup power or the solar system can fall back on Eskom to provide electricity. However, SA heat pumps require electricity to function and adding solar energy to the system directly, you can heat your pool or home by saving on average up to 50% on your SA heat pump electrical costs and up to 100% on the heat pump consumption costs, depending on how sufficient your solar system is. Heat pumps are an excellent solution to integrate with electrical or solar geysers in South Africa.
Do SA heat pumps work during cold days?
SA Heat pumps work great, even during the coldest months in South Africa. It must be extremely cold for a SA heat pump to malfunction, and this happens seldomly. There are various versions of SA heat pumps with different specifications to work in cold weather. Solar Guru is a SA heat pump supplier, and our heat pumps are rested and proven to work in all weather conditions in South Africa.
How long does a heat pump last?
Heat pumps can last for many years if proper maintenance and care have been given to the system. Heat pumps work, on average, 10 to 20 years.
Can a heat pump heat a whole house?
Yes, if a heat pump has been correctly installed as a central heating system in a home, heat pumps are more than able to provide a home with warm air.
Why invest in a heat pump?
- A heat pump lowers running costs compared to electrical heaters.
- A heat pump requires less maintenance to function.
- It is very safe to have a heat pump installed at your home.
- A heat pump drastically reduces carbon emissions.
- Heat pumps do also provide cooling in summertime.
- Heat pumps can last for years and offer a great lifespan.
