The booster comes to play during seasons of minimal sunlight. Consequently, you have a constant flow of water throughout including during the cloudy seasons and times of short durations of sunlight. Note that a solar hot water system Melbourne only heats and stores water in a tank. You cannot use the energy of the system on other parts of your home.
Heat-pump Hot Water System Melbourne
This latest system utilizes heat possessed by the surrounding air to heat the water inside a storage tank. It uses a refrigerant gas, pressurized in a compressor, to draw heat from the air. The refrigerant absorbs heat then releases it in the water inside a storage tank. The surrounding air temperature, therefore, determines the final water temperature. That is why a Heat-pump Hot Water System best suits warmer climate in which surrounding temperatures are generally high.
