Description

The Geyser is a retrofit heat pump water heaterAn appliance that uses an air-source heat pump to heat domestic hot water. Most heat-pump water heaters include an insulated tank equipped with an electric resistance element to provide backup heat whenever hot water demand exceeds the capacity of the heat pump. Since heat-pump water heaters extract heat from the air, they lower the temperature and humidity of the room in which they are installed. that connects to a standard storage-type electric or gas water heater. The 16.5” wide, 16” high, 20” deep Geyser is connected to the standard water heater by a pipe within a pipe installed in the storage tank. The outer pipe draws water into the heat pumpHeating and cooling system in which specialized refrigerant fluid in a sealed system is alternately evaporated and condensed, changing its state from liquid to vapor by altering its pressure; this phase change allows heat to be transferred into or out of the house. See air-source heat pump and ground-source heat pump. unit and the longer inner pipe delivers the heated water into the tank. When installed onto an electric water heater, the heat pump usually replaces the lower element, leaving the upper element for back-up. When retrofit onto a natural gas or propane water heater, the burner is typically turned off so that the heat pump provides all of the water heating. This unit is adjustable from 90°F to 140°F, and though not Energy StarLabeling system sponsored by the Environmental Protection Agency and the US Department of Energy for labeling the most energy-efficient products on the market; applies to a wide range of products, from computers and office equipment to refrigerators and air conditioners. listed (because there is not an Energy Star category for retrofit heat pump water heaters), the company claims an average COPEnergy-efficiency measurement of heating, cooling, and refrigeration appliances. COP is the ratio of useful energy output (heating or cooling) to the amount of energy put in, e.g., a heat pump with a COP of 10 puts out 10 times more energy than it uses. A higher COP indicates a more efficient device . COP is equal to the energy efficiency ratio (EER) divided by 3.415. of over 2. Comes with a five-year limited warranty.
