Environmental Friendliness

environment logo 300Eco-friendliness and reducing electricity consumption have become critical issues in the world today. The Alliance Heat Pump reduces your cost of heating water by between 66% - 75%. Alliance Air is a company committed to eco-friendliness! GO GREEN - SAVE ELECTRICITY!

A geyser can contribute nearly 40% of total household electricity costs and in some cases even more. Installing an Alliance Heat Pump (water heater) is the quickest way to reduce electricity costs and to save our planet.

That's why fitting an Alliance Heat Pump Water Heater makes so much ecological and economic sense. As the graph below shows, a Heat Pump makes a massive difference to the annual kilowatt/hour consumption of a typical household - and resulting expenditure on electricity.

Other energy-saving tips

  • Fit fluorescent lamps as they use far less energy for the same light output as ordinary bulbs. Even better, fit LED lights, which last up to 20 years and use minimal electricity.
  • Fit a geyser blanket as this helps decrease the amount of heat lost by the water inside. Insulate hot water pipes, especially the first 1.5 or 2 metres nearest the geyser. Do not set the thermostat too high. A setting of 50-60ºC is recommended.
  • Insulate the ceiling. As much as 50% of heat losses in a house can be attributed to a lack of ceiling insulation.
  • An air-conditioner is an efficient way to heat a home, as it utilises the same energy-efficient principles as a Heat Pump Water Heater. However, to minimise cost, keep filters clean and switch off the air con when not in use. Inverter air-conditioners use less electricity than conventional ones.
  • When using a washing machine set the machine at a low temperature: e.g. 30ºC.
  • Shower instead of bathing and use an energy-saving shower head.
