How a Heat Pump saves you money
Heat Pumps work a bit like a reverse refrigerator – transferring heat from the air, through a heat exchange system to heat your water; this is why they are often referred to as ‘air-source Heat Pumps’.
By concentrating this existing heat, instead of creating more, Heat Pumps can significantly reduce your household’s greenhouse gas emissions and energy consumption – saving you money.
Unlike solar, they don’t require the sun to work, and although they use electricity to operate, they are roughly four times more efficient than a conventional electric water heater.

How does the Heat Pump work?
- Heat Pumps draw air in through a fan to an evaporator where the heat in the air is absorbed by a refrigerant.
- The warm air turns the refrigerant from liquid to gas.
- The gas refrigerant is compressed, causing the pressure and temperature to increase.
- This hot vapour flows through a heat exchanger to heat the water and cool the refrigerant.
- The liquid refrigerant then flows into an expansion valve to reduce its pressure, allowing it to cool and enter the evaporator to repeat the cycle.
As a result of this process Heat Pump hot water systems require much less electricity to heat water than conventional electric hot water systems.
An Emerald Heat Pump hot water system has a low COP (Coefficient of Performance) for high energy savings – about 74-80% less energy when compared to traditional electric hot water where 1 kW of electricity generates 1 kW of thermal output.
