CO2 Heat Pump

The CO2 ECO Heat Pumps
These excellent quality heat pump hot water units efficiently produce plenty of hot water by extracting energy directly from the air! and do not require solar collectors on your roof.

These models use a planet friendly CO2 hydrocarbon (R744) gas as the medium.

One 315Lt unit is ideal for up to 6 people in a 3-4 bedroom 1-2 bathroom home.

In ambient air of 20 degrees it takes just 4 hours to heat 315 litres of water from 17 degrees to 65 degrees. An in-built freeze protection makes it suitable for all of Australia’s climates throughout the entire year.

The heat pump is made in Japan and has 3yrs warranty, and the tank is made in Australia and has 15yrs warranty (pro-rata)

*To Certegy-approved customers

Don't wait for your old hot water unit to fail!

History shows that when your hot water system fails, you are more likely to just replace it with the same type to get hot water again faster. If you plan to get a Sanden when your hot water unit fails - don't wait for it to fail, change it now as a planned upgrade. With Certegy EZI-PAY, you can replace it now, pay 20% deposit, borrow the balance, and pay it off interest free over 18 months!

Please call for current prices for STC's & VEEC's - 1300 552 976

Prices do not include delivery and installation. (typically allow approx. $1300 for delivery and changeover of an electric HWS)

Optional "Quickie Installation Kit" (recommended) includes all the extra fittings required for installation, and is only $300

Note: Hydronics use may void warranty - must be an approved installation.

1x unit could be used for dedicated hydronics-only to heat up to about 50sqm (5 squares or 2-3 small rooms)
We do not recommend multiple units for hydronics, instead use a correctly sized SX-xxx dedicated air sourced hydronics Heatpump

Please call 1300 552 976 or email for more info and/or free quote.

New Requirements for VEECs Rebates:

The Essential Services Commission have stepped up their requirements for compliance of the scheme: VEECs are now only claimable when replacing a working system. A system that is being replaced because it has broken-down and is no longer able to create hot water does not qualify for VEECs. The ESC now also require more thorough collection of information used to create VEECs. We have updated (once again) our forms to help with the collection of all the required information.

In summary in addition to the VEEC application form, they now require:

  • A Certificate of Electrical Safety (if one was issued for the job) must be supplied. The CES must include details of the decommissioning of the old system (i.e. old electric HWS disconnected from the electricity supply).
  • A plumbers Certificate of Compliance must be supplied. The compliance certificate must include details of the decommissioning of the old system, the method used to render the system unusable, and how and where it was disposed of.
  • Proof of purchase must be supplied, listing the model of the new system purchased, as registered with the ESC, and this must match the model written on the VEEC form. Also include the method used to render the system unusable, and how and where it was disposed of.
  • All plumbers taking part in the installation must be registered and thereby eligible to do the installation. A photocopy of the Plumbing Industry Commission Licence of all plumbers contracted to do the installation is required. With the photocopy make sure you include your FULL business details contact phone numbers, and email address.

Please note that to claim VEECs a working system must be decommissioned. The decommissioning details must be comprehensive. The ESC conducts random audits of selected applications and will ask questions relating to the decommissioning of your system.

Please be reassured however, that WE will help with ALL the rebate paperwork, as long as these guidelines are adhered to.
