HAVING PROBLEMS WITH YOUR HEAT PUMP?
Sorry to be so blunt, but if you are the unfortunate owner of a Heat Pump, you are in possession of one of the most unreliable hot water systems ever made.
99% of the time the failure is due to either the pump itself, or the operating system called the Hot Logic. Both are very expensive to fix, and heat pumps being heat pumps, are destined to fail again, in the not too distant future.
Our suggestion is to forget trying to repair the heat pump side of your tank, but to “convert” it, so it works off the “Booster” element only.
Its as simple as disconnecting the wiring to the heat pump and altering the wiring to just power the Booster element. Affordable Plumbing and Electrical has carried out 100’s of these conversions over the years and it works extremely well. So well, in fact, that we have not had a single customer complain about a lack of hot water supply or higher energy bills after the conversion.
The conversion simply changes your heat pump into a standard electric storage tank. After our years of experience with Heat pumps, the KISS principle has never been more applicable. Most are powered from your Off Peak electricity supply or straight “mains tariff” electricity. Either way, our many Heat Pump “converters” have never complained about increased energy costs.
