Heat Pump and Thermal Batteries

Heat Pumps Perth & Air to Energy Systems

URECO have championed heat pumps / air to energy systems in Perth for over 15 years. Air to Energy systems are growing ever popular as the hot water system of choice, especially when combined with solar power systems.

All our air to energy systems attract a rebate. And when combined with solar power they can be FREE to run. This is where the term Thermal Battery comes from. Thermal meaning Heat, Battery meaning Storage.

The Japanese CO2 heat pumps lead the market here in Perth and Australia. These have many advantages:

  • Longer Warranties
  • The Quietest systems, similar to a household fridge
  • Instantaneous style heating
  • Eco friendly, using naturally occurring CO2 as the refrigerant
  • The most efficient in class, leading to higher rebates
  • The heat pump unit is seperate from the tank offering a range of flexibility


That said, all-in-one systems, where the heat pump is integrated into the tank, are very popular in Perth. You will find that as we are not aligned to just one manufacturer that our advice is independent.

We recommend heat pumps that have timers supplied with the unit so you have control when it operates. Click below for our most popular units.

How does a heat pump work?


Heat Pumps rely on the suns energy that is available in the atmosphere 24/7, 365 days a year. No direct sunlight is required!

No roof collector is required with a heat pump. Instead the thermal collector (or evaporator) is present inside the heat pump unit at ground level. A fan draws the solar energy filled air over the evaporator to provide a constant flow of fresh air-sourced energy.

The small amount of electricity a heat pump consumes is similar to that of traditional solar when averaged out over the course of a year.

That is traditional solar requires an electrical element (or gas) to boost in winter. Whereas heat pumps very efficiently use electricity to run a compressor. The compressor excites the refrigerant, loaded with solar energy extracted from the air, so it then transfers the solar energy through a heat exchanger to the stored water.
