How an Alliance Heat Pump Saves you Money

WHO IS ALLIANCE

Alliance Air is a range of exceptional quality Heat Pumps, air conditioners and Water Heaters launched by Samsung Air throughout South Africa to complement their range of Samsung products which include under-ceiling/Floor-standing and Rooftop Package Units for commercial use, as well as Water Heaters and air cons for home use.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT ALLIANCE'S HEATPUMPS?

Convenional electric-element geysers are very inefficient when it comes to heating water: one kilowatt of electrical energy produces just one kilowatt of heat energy. However, with an Alliance Heat Pump Water Heater, one kilowatt of electrical energy produces THREE TO FOUR kilowatts of heat energy!

THE RESULT IS THAT AN ALLIANCE HEAT PUMP CUTS YOUR WATER HEATING BILLS BY TWO-THIRDS OR MORE!

Alliance Air is a top-quality, competitively-priced range of products that enjoys the same proven back-up and product-delivery service that has already built the Samsung brand to a pre-eminent position in South Africa.

Alliance Air offers nationwide sales and technical support, backed by Samsung and Alliance brands.

The Alliance Heat Pumps are efficient and highly accredited and have the following accreditations, amongst others:

  • ISO 9001/1 Quality Management Procedures
  • CB International Electrical compliance (43 countries participate)
  • SABS Electrical compliance approvals
  • ISO 41001 Environmental Management compliance
  • CE European Union Consumer Electrical Safety Standards
  • TUV North American quality and safety Approval
  • CSA Canadian Electrical compliance
  • AIIM Energy and Environmental Management
  • GS Mark Germany Safety Standards compliant
  • Environmental management compliance
  • Chinese Electrical Standards

WHAT IS CO-EFFICIENCY OF PERFORMANCE (COP) AND HOW DOES IT AFFECT YOU?

To know the COP capacity of your Heat Pump is an important method to evaluate the quality of the product you choose. The higher the better! It guarantees you more savings on electricity, and shows the quality and performance of the Heat Pump.

The Alliance Heat Pumps are highly efficient and utilise the R410 super-efficient gas, and as a result, have extremely high COP rates. 

COP (co-efficiency of performance), is best described as - the change in heat at input, relative to the heat at output.

For example:
Average geyser = 1 unit of electricity used, produces 1 unit of thermal energy
(ie. Heat) – inefficient use of electricity!

 THE BEAUTY OF HEAT PUMPS, AS FOLLOWS :

  • Alliance 5kW H/=  1 unit of electricity used,  produces 4.2 units of thermal heat (saving up to 76% on your water-heating costs)
  • Alliance 20kW H/=  1 unit of electricity used,  produces 4.6  units of thermal heat  (saving up to 78% on your water-heating costs)
