Heating water can be cheaper than you think.
We all understand that heat pumps are one of the most energy efficient ways to heat your home - the same applies to heating water.
An average family of four is estimated to save 65% on water heating costs* compared to a standard mains hot water cylinder, with larger families saving even more. We recommend Aquarian all-in-one heat pump hot water systems.
Heat pump water heating systems are a great option if:
- You need to replace your current electric hot water cylinder or
- There are 4 or more people in the household or
- You're building a new home or renovating

5 questions & answers about this product
What sized households are heat pump hot water systems best for?
Heat pump hot water systems make significant savings but do have a high initial purchase price. Due to this moderate to large households (4+ people) get the most benefit. Compared to an equivalent household using a traditional mains hot water cylinder:
- A family of 4 people will save an estimated $550 - 650 per year.
- A family of 6 people can save $750 - 1000 per year.
Where can heat pump hot water systems be installed?
Aquarian 170 & 250L heat pump hot water cylinders can be installed outside or inside.
- If installed inside a duct will be required to create airflow for the unit. Clearance around the unit is also needed since it is heat/energy from the ambient air that is used to heat the water.
- If outside they can be installed on a level concrete pad or paver under the house (subject to size) or in a sheltered position. They should always be sheltered from the elements and are not suitable for beachside locations due to sea-salt corrosion.
The largest Aquarian hot water heat pump (275L) needs to be installed outside on a level concrete pad or paver able to carry >500 kg in weight.
What's the difference between an all-in-one-system vs a split system?
Split-system Hot Water Heat Pump systems
This type of hot water heat pump has the cylinder inside with the heat pump located outside.
All-in-one Hot Water Heat Pump systems
These systems have the heat pump and the cylinder integrated into one unit. Aquarian all-in-one systems tend to be more competitively priced, are quieter and can be protected from the elements indoors.
How big are hot water heat pump systems?
Aquarian 170L heat pump hot water cylinder: 568 x 1670mm
Aquarian 250L heat pump hot water cylinder: 650 x 1780mm
Aquarian 275L heat pump hot water cylinder: 650 x 1800mm
Are they solar PV compatible?
Yes Aquarian hot water heat pumps are compatible with solar PV panels. They can be programmed to ensure they heat at particular times of day to either take advantage of solar power and/or to minimise noise while sleeping.
