ARK270 heat pump hot water service
My ARK270 has been in for a couple of weeks now and my daily power consumption since installation has dropped $2 a day . Over the year that works out to about $672 savings compared to the electric hot water service that we removed . The best thing is no more complaining from the wife about running out of hot water . Great customer service from Paul in regards to the paper work for the government rebates . Would highly recommend this heat bank hot water service . Cheers .
Purchased in May 2019 for $975.00.
Best customer service I can remember.
We have an AirBNB house for 8 guests in Melbourne and the 315litre Electric HWS developed a serious leak. I ordered a ARK270 from Paul on Wednesday and needed to install it by Friday evening. Paul delivered it Friday morning, helped me get it in position and it was installed and hot by 5pm. Unfortunately it failed about 8 weeks later while we had guests. After 1 phone call early in the morning Paul said he would replace it with a new unit and it was installed and hot by mid afternoon. The ARK270 costs very little to run as it is only 900w and h...eats any time compared to the off peak electric HWS which is 3600w and only worked between 11pm and 7am. The house never runs out of hot water now and I could not recommend Paul and his ARK270 more highly. I will be installing one in our home very soon.
Purchased in March 2019 at Thermalark.
Cost effective, efficient heat pump
With current Vic Govt incentives it was a no brainer to switch my old electric hot water tank out and replace it with a Thermalark 270. Almost like for like replacement for electrician and plumber. All done in 2 hours. Heats water to 55C quickly (only 2 people using it), set timer to use our PV output. Only uses 800w when not using element (eco heat mode). Will be interesting to see how it goes in winter. I would recommend it and the company to anyone looking at heat pump solution. Small problem with dud screen, but could still operate and company sent a replacement quickly and was simple 5 minute job to install replacement screen and cover.
ARK270 Heat Pump Hot Water System
I have had an ARK270 hot water unit on my home for the past several years and it operates fine. Interestingly when I swapped over I noticed a large drop in my gas bill and no real increase in electricity bill. I put this down to the fact I replaced my old 3 star gas hot water system with the ARK270.
Excellent hot water.
Hot water service has been fitted and is working great. We had a small problem with the screen but were able to resolve with thermal Ark over the phone. They were contactable and helpful. Now our hot water is heated any time & is never running out with a family of seven.
Solar Hot water Heat pump
This Hot water system connects to my solar panels. It uses a heat pump to heat the water which only uses 800 kw, that's less than my dishwasher. My gas bill had decreased from $120.00 to 54.00 for the same period last year. Always got hot water this has saved me a lot of money.
Questions & Answers
Does this connect to a solar hot water sysytem? I need a quote and some information please?
I would ask that of the retailer, I found them to be very helpful and informative. Their email is firstname.lastname@example.org

Jo - No it doesn't connect to a Solar Hot water panels on your roof, in Australia this needs a special tank. Our unit has the same efficiency as a Solar Hot water system and receives the same rebates, it can be setup to use timers so that you maximise the use of your Solar PV.
We have guest accommodation for 8 people in rural Victoria would the ARK 270 be sufficient for to service this property ?

This is a hard question to answer, it depends on the number of consecutive / simultaneous showers/baths. I think the system would work well, but there maybe times when you will run out of water. The system has 270l of water and can reheat at 75l per hour. Sorry for the delayed answer to this message, I obviously missed this enquiry.
Are there recommended plumbers for installing this product (Brisbane)? I've noticed with other brands there can be an issue with installation.
