|The sales person over emphasised the savings to be made - he exaggerated the heat pump operating times per day. I should have invested in an energy meter to be sure of the cost of the heat pump system before changing to solar. Usage before solar 13.5kWhr/day, after 11.7kWhr/day. An estimated saving of $200 per annum. Having the tank on the roof and having to have the tempering valve at the site of the old heat pump means that there is a much larger quantity of cold water before the hot water comes through. [more than double than previously] This means more pumping costs - we are on trickle feed council water and rain water tanks. Surely the law could allow for the tempering valve to be at the hot water tank on the roof. The over pressure relief valve could still be at ground level outside.
