Heat pump vs Solar Geyser

Heat pump

The Heat pump water heating system is a more effective and energy-saving way to heat water in comparison to a traditional geyser. Heat pumps rely on hot air to heat the water whereas a traditional geyser uses electricity to heat water.

The heat pump is an electrical device that transfers heat from a cooler area known as a heat source to a warmer area known as a heat sink. Because this is opposite the natural flow of energy from hot to cold regions, some electrical energy must be input into the system. This is used to pump and compress the refrigerant—the liquid that makes the work of a heat pump possible.

Advantages of heat pumps

  • Can provide cooling during the summer, effectively making it an air conditioner.
  • As a result, they are extremely reliable and a steady source of heat.
  • They have a long life span meaning that you will continue to save money over time.

Solar Geyser

Solar Geysers is one of the most effective and energy-saving water heating systems available. Especially in Cape Town with the warm African Sun. With solar geysers, you are able to save up to 40% on your monthly electricity bill, as well as being able to offer hot water at almost all times, even during load shedding and extended blackouts

The solar geyser is a water heating system that relied on the sun’s energy to heat up the water. The process is known as convection. The water is stored in the panels, which then heats up, allowing the water to rise up in the tank above. The hot water then moves into the storage cylinder, usually located inside the house.

Advantages of solar geysers

  • A solar geyser can help you save up to 90% on your water heating costs.
  • Solar geysers will continue to heat your water even on cloudy days.
  • Solar heating systems are strong and weather resistant.

We strive to provide you the client with the highest quality of services at the fairest price.

Our Philosophy

Vital Plumbing's founding philosophy is based on two basic requirements, these being absolutely NO compromising on a professional adept service and that of using the finest building materials available with NO compromise on the installation thereof by our well trained and dedicated plumbers. In addition to these philosophies we are constantly researching and testing new materials and installation methods that are introduced into the current construction industry in our quest to provide our clients with the best service in the quickest time at a fair price.

It is no coincidence that the majority of our work is acquired through referrals and repeat business from clients with whom we have established longstanding, solid working relations; such is the confidence of our marketplace in the study, execution and quality of our workmanship.

At Vital Plumbing we have a fear of being average in which this initiates our desire to strive for PERFECTION and complete ACCOUNTABILITY...
Big enough to take on anything... Small enough to care about every job and client.

An excellent plumber is infinitely more admirable than an incompetent philosopher. The society which scorns excellence in plumbing because plumbing is a humble activity, and tolerates shoddiness in philosophy because it is an exalted activity, will have neither good plumbing nor good philosophy. Neither its pipes nor its theories will hold water.
