Couldn't be happier

We moved from a solar system that wasn't boosting properly to this Hydrotherm and I really couldn't be happier. The unit looks good and is quiet, we immediately noticed that our hot water was hotter, the pressure was better and we no longer run out. The service was excellent from ordering through delivery. The biggest thing was the drop in our power bills, so the Hydrotherm will pay for itself eventually. Show reply

Excellent Hot Water System

We have had no problems with the Hydrotherm system since installation about 3-4 months ago. Our demand isn't the highest but this thing doesn't skip a beat. Duvet from Hydrotherm hot water systems was super helpful and answered all of our questions. 10/10 would recommend this system. Show reply

Looks great, works well

Just had the heatpump HWS installed a week ago so too early to comment on durability, however the unit looks great and works well. It is also pretty quiet when operating so won't upset any neighbours. The good pressure hot water is great as we have moved from an old gravity pressure system and there have been no problems with running out/water temperature etc. Very pleased and my plumber also impressed and thinks he may get one.  Show reply

Immediate Hot Water Bathroom 1, Kitchen 3 M away long time and Bathroom 2 forever

Just two in the house and Washing machine is Cold Water design.
Therefore we do not really have any experience of fluctuations or high demand.
Fluctuations have not been noticed at this time.

Expensive? Not as much as Solar H2O but well worth it

My Hydrotherm Dynamic X8 was heavy to unload from the truck on delivery but went into position nicely, after the plumber and electrician had finished the installation the hot water has been great.
I actually replaced a Solar Hot Water system that was about to fail and would have cost me a lot more to replace so went with this heat pump and so far I'm very happy with it. We also have solar panels and get credit on our bills so saving more money.

Very pleased with this system

The Hydrotherm system was installed nearly 4 months ago, it was handy having a plug on the electricity cable as it took some time to get a sparkey to hard wire the system. We have had 3-4 people in the house and the hot water has been great. The power savings have been worthwhile saving 2/3 of the power. The Company was efficient and easy to deal with. Show reply

A very good quality heat pump and service

A very good quality product and great service. We are in WA as we had been looking to replace an old and small electric storage hot water system. In comparison with other offers, Hydroterm was outstanding in terms of warranty so decided to have a go. The system was delivered right in time and it's an easy unit for a certified plumber and an electrician to install.

A heat pump is very quiet. Have set it up to work on schedule from from 10am to 5pm, but usually it takes just 3-4 hours a day to keep up with 60 degrees programmed. Looking forward to see next power bill! Show reply

Excellent heat pump unit for price

Run 11am-5pm & meets demand for family of 4 in metro Melbourne. Only critique is top of unit, where rain pools within indented lid design. Efficiency great - electric boost not required Show reply

Honestly! price, customer service & product are perfect! I highly recommend over other brands, happy customer

The Hydrotherm 260L heat pump replaced an old electric 80L tank & WOW! Super hot water (perfect for winter!), it never runs out of hot water unlike smaller tanks! I can’t wait for the next power bill to see the saving too!

Also my tank is installed in the garage (I live in a small duplex) there is no noise issues & as an added bonus it cools the garage & helps to dry my cloths that I air dry in there too (heat pumps systems circulate the air & pulls moisture from the surrounding air)

Product 10/10. Customer Service 10/10. Price For Product 10/10. I haven’t received a power bill yet for Savings ?/?. IF I can edit this review I’ll try and update in the future. Show reply

Replacement Electric to Heat Pump Hot Water (Hydrotherm)

Installed a new Hydrotherm in April to replace our old electric water heater. Still early to tell on savings but from what I have read we should see a drop in power bills.
The plumber installed it in the same position as our old heater using the existing piping and base as it's similar in size.
System took around three hours to reach 60 degrees the first day and since then we haven’t run out of hot water.
Haven’t noticed any noise issues like other reviews, having it installed outside I can’t hear when it turns on or when it's heating, even at night.
The price for me was a big factor being $500 - $1000 less then other brands, maybe being a local company helps them be competitive. Show reply
