AmbiPower 280e Heat Pump Water Heater

The innovative AmbiPower range of Heat Pump water heaters has welcomed a new, affordable era of water heating to New Zealand. Rather than using the traditional methods of electricity or gas to heat your home’s water, the AmbiPower – a heat pump water heater – utilises heat from the surrounding air. As there is always heat in the atmosphere which can be used, the AmbiPower provides a reliable, efficient, and sustainable way to reduce your water heating energy consumption that doesn’t rely on direct sunlight to operate. The result: a water heater that can save you up to, or over, 70% on your water heating energy.
