Heat pump repair and replacement service.

We received a call recently from a customer in Neutral Bay (Lower North Shore) whose old Rheem heat pump had started leaking.

Once onsite, it became apparent that the Rheem heat pump was beyond economical repair. A new one needed to be installed. The customer was happy with the performance of the old heat pump, finding it very energy-efficient and cheap to run.

We gave the customer several suggestions for a replacement heat pump and they opted for the Rheem Ambiheat 270 litre heat pump (HDc270 | model: 551270). Rheem’s Ambiheat heat pump features advanced technology and superior performance, it is designed to provide reliable hot water while minimising energy consumption and environmental impact.

Designed and manufactured in Australia, the Rheem Ambiheat heat pump was the winner of the Canstar Blue Innovation Excellence Award – Home Appliances 2023

Older hot water heaters can be prone to leaks and inefficiencies, leading to increased energy bills and frequent repairs. Leaks not only waste water but also indicate potential damage to the system, reducing its effectiveness over time. Upgrading to the Rheem Ambiheat Heat Pump 270L was a smart, long choice for the homeowners.  With its advanced features, durability, and energy efficiency, this Rheem heat pump is a reliable solution for hot water needs in any household.
