A 4.7kw heat pump can heat up to 500 litres of water. A normal electrical element will have used around 20kw to accomplish this feat, but the heat pump, depending on the ambient temperature, will only have used around 5kw. Saving you around 75% of your water heating cost !
3.0kw (COP = 4)
A 3.0kw heat pump is capabale of heating up to 300 litres of water using only around 3.0kw versus the 12kw a normal electrical element would have used !
When you install an Accredited Eskom Heat Pump they will refund you between R 4181.52 and R 4924.80, depending on the size of the system.
