Saving heaps

I love the fact I can set and forget. It comes on at 10.30 am used my generated solar power and switches off when the set temp is reached. No more off peak heating bills. Great to have same temperature water each day. Love the fact I can boost the temperature to 70 degrees during the day if needed and still use solar power. Fabulous purchase. Show details

Easy, quiet and just does what a HWS is supposed to do

Had one of these heat pumps installed by my local plumber. Hydrotherm were very easy to deal with and had it delivered to me.

It runs for about 2-3 hours a day and uses about 1.2KW while running. It's programmed to run when the sun is shining so I get free hot water from my solar essentially.

So happy I went with this and got my gas disconnected so I am completely off gas now! Show details

Excellent system - really works well

We made the decision to use the Hydrotherm Dynamic/X8 heat pump to compliment the installation of solar panels - now we have no gas bills and our first quarterly electricity bill is a credit of $98 - what could be better? Show details

Still happy 3 months on

Very happy with all the comms and clean install from Gavin at Melbourne heat pumps. Provided some really good advice about staying with the 280L unit which has 100% been the way to go. We don’t use huge amount of hot water as just two of us for now but it meant even on cold cloudy days in late winter the unit was only running for an hour to get back up to temp. Have found a work around app (Tuya smart) to be able to check temp etc from the phone which is probably my only gripe that hydrotherm haven’t got there own out there yet. Would recommend at this stage. Show details

This is the best investment I've ever made. The money saved on electricity far outweighs the cost. Could be a little bet pressure but it's fine for us Show details

Hydrotherm X8 - Melbourne Heat Pumps

I replaced a gas hot water system with a Hydrotherm X8. I was extremely impressed by Melbourne Heat Pumps, who were extremely professional, competent and efficient with the supply, installation and removal of my old system. They SMS'd me to let me know they could come earlier if I wished and turned up on time. I can highly recommend them. Show details

So far so good

Installed over a month ago. Cost of running is much better than gas. Unit is hotter than the gas was. Water pressure has dropped slightly, although I think this is more due to the regulator than the unit itself. Show details

Good system and good value for money

We replaced an ageing but still functional AquaMax gas HWS about a month ago and are happy that we did. So far the Hydrotherm has performed very well. We were particularly impressed by Melbourne Heat Pumps, who were totally professional, very competent and amazingly efficient with their supply, installation and removal of the old system. The unit is slightly noisy from our bedroom, but as it is set to operate between 10 am and 3 pm that doesn't bother us at all. Next step will be solar panels and hopefully very low cost hot water! Show details

Some features to like

In another home, I installed a cheaper heat pump service which has many frustrations. I find the Hydrotherm much more user-friendly and efficient. I like that the timer means the device only comes on when the solar panels are most likely to be the chief source of power. I like that the temperature adjustment is open to the user not requiring an electrician. The operation has been completely excellent and the provision of hot water has been flawless. Show details

IT DOES WHAT THEY SAY IT WOULD

To be honest we did have a problem with our first unit that was supplied to us but give Hydrotherm their due it was replaced with a new one, in saying this I should point out it was more of a water issue that he unit not performing well. Show details

Solid reliable and pretty quiet

Supplies hot water reliably and we never run out of hot water for a household of three that use hot water for nearly everything, being in Melbourne. Hydrotherm is installed behind our kitchen and barely a humm inside the house and outside it is slightly less loud than the exterior unit of a split system. The profile of the system is also very pleasing on the eye. Havent had it long enough to comment on electricity efficiency since we came off a gas water heater. Gavin from Melbourne Heat Pumps had it out to us the next day after our gas heater broke down and the installation was completed in a couple of hours and electrical another couple of hours later. It appears to have a lot of advanced features to increase energy efficiency. Show details

Quiet system, quick to heat up. Plumber said all the fittings that came with the unit were worth $500, he normally has to supply for other systems he fits. Show details

Excellent Product

This unit has operated extremely efficiently since installation. Has saved us a significant amount on our gas bill (replaced a gas HWS). Flexible control panel allows us to use solar power off our roof to heat hot water with lowest cost electricity. Show details
