Bosch Heat Pump Hot Water System
The Bosch Compress 3000 is a high-efficiency residential hot water system. It operates using the same reliable technology used in refrigerators, to extract heat from the air and transfer it to water. The Bosch system is highly efficient, reducing energy use by up to 65% when compared to conventional electric storage hot water systems. The Bosch heat pump also features a backup electrical heating element to ensure security of hot water supply.
A large 270L tank easily provides hot water for a 3-4 person household, or medium-sized office. The Bosch Compress 3000 consumes only 600 Watts of electricity when operating; this energy can easily be powered by even a small solar power system. Combining solar power with heat pump technology provides fantastic savings, and is a great way to make the most of your solar investment.
Smart control options allow the heat pump to make best use of solar power and ambient air temperatures. The Bosch heat pump supports different smart operating modes, including timer, holiday, quiet, and one shoot boost.
How it works:
A heat pump hot water system only consumes the electricity required to operate the parts needed to transfer heat from the air to the water. The energy requirements of these components are 3 to 4 times lower than the energy it recovers from the air.
Typically the heat pump consumes 1 kWh of electricity to supply more than 3 kWh for water heating. With conventional electric hot water systems the electricity grid supplies all energy required to heat the water; unlike the heat pump hot water system, a conventional electric system cannot leverage the warm Australian air to produce hot water.
