What is a heat pump?

Heat Pumps work on the same principle as airconditioners, extracting ambient heat from the atmosphere but, instead, transferring it to water. Thus where in a normal geyser, 1 kW of electrical energy produces just 1 kW of heat energy, with a Heat Pump, 1 kW of electrical energy produces approximately 3 kW of heat energy. The result is water heated for only approximately one third of the electrical usage of a normal household geyser. You save two-thirds on your water heating costs!

Domestic

The domestic Alliance units comfortably heat from 100 litres to 500 litres of water.

Pool

Heat your pool to 30ºC+ for a fraction of the cost of an electric heater.

Remote control with timer

A wired control allows you to heat water at pre-set times, including during off-peak, as well as letting you set desired hot water temperature to between 40ºC and 60ºC.

Eco-friendly

Apart from saving electricity, saving you money and reducing the load on Eskom, Alliance units also operate on eco-friendly R410A gas.

Operates in all weathers

With an ambient operating range of –7ºC to +35ºC, the Alliance unit is unaffected by rain, snow or clouds. Automatic defrosting protection is built in, and the unit can operate day or night as required.
