Over 30 years of ongoing product development provides a worry free operation using proven technology.
Hot water heat pumps are often confused with solar hot water, and in some ways this confusion is
justified. Solar hot water heaters rely on incidental sunshine to affect the heating while hot water heat pumps take heat from the ambient air and use this energy source to heat the water. The Quantum heat pump does not need direct sunshine to operate nor does it need large roof panels; in fact for commercial applications the units look like traditional hot water heaters. Day or night , rain, hail or shine, they produce hot water but with efficiencies such that traditional hot water heating bills can be slashed by 50 -75 percent.
The Quantum heat pump is a patented system whereby heat from the ambient air is absorbed by an environmentally friendly refrigerant in the evaporator. This refrigerant gas is then compressed which causes the gas’s temperature to be raised. This hot gas is passed through copper tubes wrapped around the outside of the water tank. Heat from the tubes is then transferred to the water inside the tank .
Once the heat from the compressed gas has been transferred to the water in the tank , the gas
becomes a liquid again, and then passes through an expansion device (TX valve) and back to the
evaporator. The cycle is repeated until the water in the storage tank reaches 60C.
