- How many occupants are living in the house?
- What are the ages of the occupants?
- What energy sources are available in your home? For example gas or electricity.

Heat Pumps use no electricity when heating water and only use a very small amount of electricity to distribute the hot water. They source their heat from ambient temperature to produce hot water at a consistent 60 degrees Celsius. Heat pumps can also be used for pool and spa heating.
Heat pumps can be retro-fitted; they can replace existing hot water tanks which are located outside or in a double garage. Heat pumps look like a conventional hot water heater; only half a meter taller.
Domestic heat pumps are available in two sizes; 150 litre and 270 litre tanks.
