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