How it Works

EcoSpring Heat Pump Hot Water Cylinders work much like a fridge but in reverse.  They harness the ambient temperature in the air, multiplying this heat to heat the water at a fraction of the energy of a traditional hot water cylinder.

 

 

A fan pulls in air, containing heat energy, across the evaporator.

 

The evaporator turns the liquid refrigerant into a gas.

 

The compressor converts refrigerant into high temp /high-pressure gas.

 

The hot gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the tank.

 

The refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after heating the water & continues back to the evaporator for the process to start again.

1.0kW Electricity Input + 2.60kW Atmospheric Heat Input = 3.60kW Hot Water Output

A heat pump is like an energy amplifier. From 1 kW of power input, it can create over 3.6kW of output heat. That’s a performance efficiency of over a remarkable 300%. Conventional electric storage water heaters can only convert 1 kW of input power into 1 kW of output heat.
