How does a Heat Pump work?


Simply put, a heat pump is a device that uses a small amount of energy to move heat from one location to another.  In a way, if you know how an air conditioner works, then you already know a lot about how a heat pump works. This is because heat pumps and air conditioners operate in a very similar way.

A Heat Pump simply sucks the heat out of the surrounding air and puts it into your geyser (well actually the water inside the geyser)

First of all, heat is sucked in from a "Heat Source" which is the surrounding air. The Heat is absorbed by a refrigerant in the coil, similiar to a car radiator. a Compressor then compress the refrigerant, causing it to become extremely hot. It is then pumped to another coil (a condensor). Here the water from your geyser absorbs that extreme heat and thereby heating your water.   HP works
1+3=4kw   It saves you money because it needs only 1kw of electricity, to generate the same heat as a 4kw Electrical Element. a Heat Pumps sucks the other 3kw of energy from the surrounding air.
