So Far So Good. Everyone should have one

Has worked very well in the first three weeks for a 2-3 person household. The time scheduling is great to make use of the rooftop solar. The WiFi connection has been a problem through a brick wall with the Tuya app but have used another app that was easier to connect that gives basic information on how the water temperature is going so can adjust the time schedule to minimise run time before sunlight. The daily bill is down as it replaced a very old (15+ years) heat pump system that had served us well but had been fading and running almost full time over the past few months. Bang for buck looks very good for now. Show details

Happy with installation and supply

Happy with our heat pump Dynamic/X8. Plenty of hot water even early in morning before it begins to heat.
It is noisier than 42 db but this lasts about an hour.
So far no other issues. Show details

Excellent product at a reasonable price

Our gas HWS broke down so it presented an opportunity to take more advantage of our already installed solar panels and battery. We did our homework - the Hydrotherm reviews were generally good, the price was competitive and noise levels were minimal. We asked Hydrotherm to recommend an installer in Adelaide and Adelaide Hills Hot Water did the rest. Excellent and prompt service and, while still early days, can't fault the product. Plenty of hot water despite the fact that the system has been set to take advantage of daylight hours and off-peak tariffs. Show details

Great hws with wifi capabilities

Able to tweak on and off times during off peak and solar usage. However does take a while to heat the tank to 60-65 degrees. Have a family of 4 with showers 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening.

I wish I could have upgraded earlier!

After replacing my gas hot water system and installing the Hydrotherm Dynamic X8 and feeding it with solar electricity I am hardly paying for any hot water.
I am able to set all its functions through the easy to install app (Tuya) and continually monitor the temperature.
I have it set to heat about an hour before the morning demand and heat pump with the solar heating does the rest to keep the temperature maintained throughout the day with little to no cost. Show details

Great system, very happy

Smooth change over, fits perfectly in its spot and provides ample hot water for us. Makes some noise but this is not excessive and not a problem where we have it. It's been in for a month and so far, very happy with it. Show details

Feel Good Showering

Had our system installed just in time for Christmas. We all tend to shower late in the evenings, unbeknown to me the installer had left the timer on factory setting to switch off at 5:00 pm. By 10:00 pm my first shower was tepid (yuck). Now we have adjusted the timer settings we have plenty of hot water into the evening and have not looked back. Am now keen to see our electric and gas bill and see the savings.
With every show, we now know we are doing our part in helping reduce our emissions into the future. Not only are we comforted with reliable hot water, but the feeling of knowing with every shower we are doing our part, is good. Show details

We have a Hydrotherm gas fired boiler for central heating and hot water supply for the kitchen. Can we convert to a heat pump operation and, if so, what is the estimated cost?

Hydrotherm
Hydrotherm   DM   

Hi John Thanks for your enquiry. Our heat pumps are for hot water only. You need to look for a "hydronic heat pump" if you are wanting to convert you gas boiler.
