Best HWS We’ve Had

Great HWS. Very hot water. Much cheaper than traditional HWS. Had small issue with water not heating due to code error. De Wet at Hydrotherm was great. Fixed over phone.

All good

Installed on a rental property in May 2021, in the Central Tablelands of NSW. Had a cold wet winter but no complaints from the tenants about any hot water or noise issues. Show reply

Shrinking our carbon footprint at little cost

Good, safe delivery from Hydrotherm. Local plumber installed the Dynamic/X8 without difficulty. I set the timer for 10am until 4pm to use solar. Great result: cheap, reliable hot water and we are completely off gas. Edit: Been operating for 12 months, now. No issues; flawless operation even during two mornings at -4°C. Solar panels plus heat-pump hot water is a winner. Show reply

Hasn't missed a beat

Our unit has been installed having replaced a gas service earlier this year. Working in conjunction with a 5Kv solar array on the roof, it fires up mid morning, runs between 1-3 hours depending on use the day (24hrs) before and then goes back to sleep till the next day.
The initial purchase price with rebates was great value and now we save everyday with the gas disconnected. The visual appearance is often commented on by visitors as the stainless steel cladding is a winner Show reply

Great heat pump unit, quiet, cheap to operate and hot water for all to enjoy

We had the Hydrotherm Dynamic/X8 installed in October of 2020 and has always supplied reliable hot water to our household, not once did we run out.

Only recently noticed the temperature controller was not behaving correctly on the unit. A quick Email to Hydrotherm customer care explaining the problem and the technician was here the very next day to repair the unit (controller board change out).

Wow, what fantastic speedy service by the Hydrotherm team. We have recommended your product to others.

Very happy customers. Show reply

So far so good after 12 months in Melbourne, no more gas

We purchased our Hydrotherm in September 2020, to replace the 11 year old gas hot water. This was our last gas appliance so the house is now running fully on solar / electric and no more gas bills. :)

After one year the hydrotherm has been working perfectly, we have set the timer to come on in mid - morning to only run when the sun is shining / solar is producing. I think once in 12 months we ran out of hot water the next morning.

The unit is very efficient, using about 2 kWh in summer and 3 kWh in winter. The unit runs for approx. 2 to 3 hours each day and is very quiet. Show reply

Great Heater pump Hot water System works well with Solar system, extremely happy

The unit has proven to be very efficient, easy set up with the led timer.

Once the unit was installed the unit heated the water as per the description in the owners manual.

The unit itself only has to be connected to a standard 10 amp plug outlet once a plumber has connected unit as specified in the installation requirements, no electrician is required to hard wire the unit to the power similar to other hot water units.

Overall the system is very impressive, I would highly recommend this system. Show reply

Four months in, through the worst of winter, (as it is in Brisbane), and we have no complaints whatsoever

We have had the Hydrotherm Dynamic/X8 installed for four months and it hasn't missed a beat. Family of four, including showers, baths, washing up etc. Not once has the hot water run out.

The price to run is as labelled.

We are very happy customers. Show reply

Working well with a family, cheaper to run also. No complaints at all, very happy

We have set up to heat during the day when the solar system on the roof provides power. Worked well last winter with a family. It makes less noise than the airconditioning unit outside. When inside can't hear it. Happy as a pig in mud! Show reply

Fantastic efficient hot water system

It’s nice looking (all stainless), the heat hump is quiet and super efficient. You can set the timer yourself to control when it heats, which is great if you have solar power and want to maximise your household usage. With the STC redemption the price was exceptionally good. We highly recommend this hot water system. Show reply

Great reliable unit so far

I've only had the Hydrotherm for about 4-5 months so I can't comment on its longetivity but so far so good.
It's quiet and reliable (so far). Easy to configure and water is very hot.
I've had great support on any questions I've asked. Show reply

Works Perfectly - Great Product - Great Service

We ordered the Hydrotherm Heat Pump Hot Water Service and it was delivered the same day. The energy savings have been good even though we have an extra person in the home. We can connect the system to solar panels but have decided not to date as it would take a long time to recoup the cost of the solar panels. We have recommended this product to other people who have had it installed.

Great Hot water System

As a plumber of over 40 years, I have recommended the Hydrotherm heat pump hot water systems to many of my thinking clients over the past 10 years, Recently I had the opportunity for the install one in my own home, the savings on running costs are great and it never runs out of hot water. Combine with a solar PV system my hot water cost nothing to heat. Great product Show reply

Great Product. Great Service

Glad to be saving on the electricity costs for years to come. The digital control panel is fantastic. Heats the water in no time. We had plenty of hot water after couple of hours of the installation. We have set the timer for the unit to work during business hours to minimise the fan noise (it is MUCH MUCH less than our air conditioning fan noise). Show reply

This is a excellent product, our family bought 3 units in two month all units are working very good

We choice Hydrotherm Dynamic/X8 because it can help us safe our electricity bill a lot once we changed it.
Dynamic/X8 is the lowest price within so many other heat pump type hot water systems we had checked in the market and it is so nice with a stanless steel cover. It is user friendy to control with the detail instructions together with their staff.

Really happy with it so far!

Works just as they said it would and we have never had any issues with running out of hot water. The metal grill at the top could be a bit more solid as we had to do some work above it and it got easily dented.  Show reply

Free hot water!

This unit, coupled with our rooftop solar power, effectively gives us free hot water.

Awesome upgrade

After looking into all the energy efficiency upgrades I could make to my home, replacing our 15 year old electric resistive unit with a Hydrotherm heat pump was a no brainer. I was able to take advantage of state and federal rebates and paid under $800 to have the new system installed. I've set it up to heat off of my solar at 9am but the water is still hot earlier in the morning.

We're very happy with the unit, it's going to save us a lot on energy bills and we're taking advantage of the power my solar is generating. I've already been asking friends if they have old electric resistive units that could be upgraded, as it's a great time to take advantage of these rebates and install a much more energy efficient hot water unit.  Show reply

Best investment ever

This is a very efficient and quiet unit that easily copes with our above average usage. We effectively get all our hot water for free now due to having solar panels (6KW) and this unit.

I was more than impressed with the quality and build of the HWS as were my neighbours' and friends. Show reply

Great system, easy to install & easy to use

Very easy to use, we're a family of six, so require a lot of hot water.
We've needed to make some adjustments along the way to the temperature control & timer.
This has been very easy to adjust.
Hydrotherm have been a great company to deal with & offer great after sales service.
Very happy! Show reply

Seamless transition to a much more efficient hot water service. Seems to be quality

Has been stable temperature.
Plumber installed a regulator on our mains which has assisted.
Now can use our solar more effectively with the timer.

Excellent unit - does everything it claims even in Victoria

I use it in conjunction with PV Solar. Set the timer for 9am until 5pm andwe have never run out of water. I also set an additional timer in winter 1am to 3am (low cost electricity) to guarantee hot water for the morning shower. 3 adults and 4 teenagers with multiple sports. Pretty much 'free' to use for 9 moths of the year. Compared to solar hot water (roof top) this is hands down better, cheaper to run and most importantly never run out of water. Show reply
