A spa is one of the most delightful luxuries a home can have – and also one of the most expensive.
Heating a spa can cost between $30 and $50 per month in summer, and between $60 and $80 per month in winter in a temperate climate such as Auckland. Costs only increase the farther south you go.
However, there is a way to continue to enjoy your spa, or even heat a pool, without dealing with huge power bills or high energy use that can have a negative impact on the environment.
How a hot water heat pump can heat your spa or pool
A heat pump has long been the gold standard in heating New Zealand homes thanks to its high efficiency and ease of use. A hot water heat pump is the next step in the evolution of home hot water and heating technology, as it takes the same basic system and uses it throughout the home, heating water as well as interiors.
With an outdoor unit, a hot water cylinder, and an indoor control panel, a Mitsubishi Ecodan hot water heat pump can reduce the cost of heating water and your home by as much as 70%, and pay itself off within four years.
It can also:
Heat your spa or pool
Power your radiators or underfloor heating
Make your home more eco-friendly with lower power use
Supply consistent heating throughout the year
Provide 3.2kW of heat output, compared with just 0.82kW of output from electric heating systems
If you already have a hot water cylinder installed in your home, there’s no need to replace it to switch to a hot water heat pump system. Lite Energy can retrofit the system with your existing cylinder for less waste and expense.
