Efficient water heater but noisy

We replaced our Bosch heat pump with a 250 litre Enviroheat, the unit is 30 metres from our bedroom window and around a corner, I can still hear it at night, I purchased the unit because it was advertised as being quiet, it a lot noisier than the Bosch Show details

Much more efficient than our last one

Timer function works well, even retains settings after power outage.
A little bit noisy, but better than the last heat pump we had. Show details ·  1

A mazing job

Jack and Andrew arrived on time 7 am and finished at 8:15am. They are very efficient and nice, that's a mazing. So I can go to work as usual. Thank you very much guys. I strongly recommend this company to anyone who needs it. Show details

handled an influx of visitors admirably

We were concerned when a bunch of visitors came to stay unexpectedly but there was an ample amount of hot water. Very easy to adjust the unit and great service and assistance from the Ureco Hot Water Team in the early stages of getting to know the unit. Show details

A great investment for us and the planet!

We purchased this product on the recommendation of a friend, and we are very happy we took her advice. Whilst we were a little surprised at the size of the heater, the installers ensured it was situated in a suitable place out of sight. The pump runs for about 80 minutes each day and sounds a bit like a pool pump, so it is not annoying. Plus with the timer we are able to ensure it comes on at a time that does not bother us or our neighbours. The most fantastic thing though is the reduction we have noticed in our utility bills! Our gas bill has reduced by 75% and our power bill has not changed at all! It’s a win win situation for us, and more importantly, the planet! Show details ·  2

Great hot water system

Got this to replace an old rooftop hot water system and it has been great. Only need to run it from 10am-2pm to utilise maximum output from our solar system and have yet to run out of hot water.

Installed by URECO who got out to us quickly as it was an urgent job and did good work at a competitive price Show details

ONE HAPPY CAMPER

Our Dux Airoheat of 18 years finally gave up the ghost so I chose to replace with the Enviroheat 250EH1-15 Heat Pump Water Heater. JR Gas and Water arrived at my house at 7am for a seamless install. The Enviroheat unit is quiet, stylish and heated up quickly. The unit looks extremely well made and is running like a dream. Very happy with the choice and no problems with 4 people in the house, with plenty of hot water! The unit is quiter than I anticipated and sits outside my daughters window. She has no concerns over the noise and said she doesnt even notice it. Overall, for the price and build quality I cannot be happier. Show details

Great heat pump for the money

I was looking to change my gas storage water heater to a heat pump. I reviewed loads of systems and settled on the Eviroheat 250l because of its reviews and availability. I only run it from 9am to 5pm when we have solar available and there is enough water for a family of 4. It does not run outside of the set times. I've heard people moan about the noise but it is the same as a reverse cycle air conditioning unit. As we only run it during the day this doesn't bother us. Overall very good unit, cheap to run and plenty of hot water. Show details ·  1

Quiet system and an excellent replacement

My previous hot water system had died and was replaced excellently by JR Gas and Water. Not only looks sleek and futuristic - but is much quieter than my last hot water system, which I could hear all the way up on the 2nd floor. Works perfectly for a household of 3 people and was installed without any issues. Show details

Already had to replace first unit

For two people between Spring and Autumn the unit is fine. For three people it does not cope at all. We have already had one unit replaced because it was faulty. The unit we have now decides every day how much the temperature needs to drop before the unit will turn on. Some days it is a 5 degrees decrease before it will turn on and some days it is a 12 degrees decrease. There is no consistency. In winter in Victoria the unit works very badly and we have had cold water many winter mornings. I think the unit is very noisy and if l were our neighbours l would be complaining about the noise. Show details

Terrible performance in winter

Like the other ACT user, we have terrible performance of this unit in winter. Although the tank indicates it is at max temperature and full, our 250l tank drains after filling up a single 100l bath leaving no hot water until the next day. The manufacturer tells us there is nothing wrong and we should just not use our bath.
If you live in a cold climate look elsewhere. Show details

Quiet and easy to use display

Had a few options provided by JR Gas & Water and decided to go with Enviroheat as they highly recommended it compared to other brand name that I wanted to install. Not only it fits my budget well, the installation done by JR Gas & Water was quick and tidy. The Enviroheat unit has done its job so far with not too much noise but will advise keep them away from windows (min 3 meters away) as it can be loud depending on your tolerance. Show details

Good Choice

The heat pump replaced a gas storage unit. It is timed to come on mid-day and usually takes a couple of hours. It provides all the water we need for a family of five and has halved are gas bill. We have solar panels and there has not been a noticeable difference in the electricity bill. Show details

Absolutely appalling

This "heat" pump does not provide enough hot water for our family of 3 to have a short shower each day and use no other hot water in the house.

The "boost" function takes hours to increase the heat by even a couple of degrees and costs a fortune in electricity. It is woefully inadequate and I would strongly recommend against wasting your money on it.

The other problem is we have to run water for longer with this heat pump before it gets hot resulting in huge water wastage and much higher water bills.

We asked for a check to see if all working properly, which they charged us for (terrible “service”) Outcome: this is how they work.

What an appalling product. Show details

New install to replace a faulty electric hot water tank

We had an Enviro Heat Heat Pump water tank installed by JR Gas and Water. So far the unit is working flawlessly. I do recommend placing it away from bedroom windows as humming sound can be heard at night when the neighbourhood is quiet. JR Gas and Water was very prompt with replies to enquiries. I highly recommend Jarred and his team! Thank you. Show details

Enviroheat water heater

Unit has been working well summer and I winter, and capacity is fine for 2people. Controls are pretty straightforward once you find the video. Coupled with solar we have had reduction in both gas and electricity charges. A suggested improvement is a Bluetooth app to change settings and view the temperature etc indicators, similar to the solar inverter if it doesn't greatly add to the cost

Very unhappy

I originally wrote a positive review at the very beginning of getting the 250L Enviroheat unit (only because the company incentives customers to write a positive review by offering a $50 gift card for those customers who write a review).

However after less than 12 months of owning it, we have had no end of trouble with this unit. Regularly runs out of hot water during cold months, and switches off unexpectedly. Despite multiple visits from technicians no solution has been provided. Very unhappy with this unit Show details

Happy customer

Had the enviroheat heat pump installed today by JR gas and water. Unit was delivered promptly this morning and installed to a high standard. Was concerned about size and fitting in the narrow side of house but it fitted perfectly. Fairly quite. Only set to run during day time. Within 3-4 hrs had enough hot water for the kids to have their showers after school. Looking forward to the saving with the solar system as well. Show details

Great heat pump product

Had this heat pump for 1 month now and it works nicely giving us hot water for our family of 4 when we need it even in Winter or cloudy days. A bit surprised with how quiet the unit is when compared with an instantaneous gas hot water system. Great quality unit for the price paid and professionally installed by JR Gas and Water. No negatives about the unit 1 month after the install. Show details

It works

The good:
Heats water easily to 65'C. I use daytime running setting to utilize solar power. The wife is happy and I save money compared to gas system.

The bad:
Before you can read or configure the display you need to undo two screws to remove a plate that covers the display. And if you let the plate drop... good luck to your toes. The display is very hard to read in daytime. Otherwise the product works well. Show details

Installation advice

Works well but we installed it inside a shed as per the existing plumbing and the cold air outlet needed to be vented outside, away from the air intake on the unit. No complaint, instructions state to install outside. Show details

Excellent system

We replaced our gas storage with the Enviroheat 250L system a few months ago. We have programmed it to suit our hot water needs for a family of 4 and works great. Already we've had great savings in our gas bill and in the future hope to install solar power to reduce our electricity bill even further.

Great system, quiet operation, good price

We recently installed this system as our older Dux electric tank of 12 years started leaking. While we were uncertain about installing a heat pump at first, we decided that the promised reduction in operating costs presented a good opportunity to reduce out electric bill. The enviroheat system promises a 71% reduction in costs compared to an electric tank.

We have a 6.5kW PV system on our roof and we're able to set the Enviroheat timer system to function during daylight hours to use as much of that power as possible. The system is also a lot quieter than we were expecting which is great. We had the system installed for $3000.00 and all in all are very happy with the price and performance  Show details
