Why are peo­ple choos­ing Ecospring?

Melissa Ja­kich in­stalled Ecospring. We asked her why. “We wanted some­thing as en­ergy ef­fi­cient and money sav­ing as pos­si­ble,” she says. “A hot water heat pump seemed to be the an­swer, as it re­quires less electricity and pro­vides sav­ings all year ’round. This also makes it kinder on the en­vi­ron­ment. “We needed a sys­tem that could be in­stalled out­doors, but we had is­sues with high winds and over­all height re­stric­tions, so installing so­lar pan­els would have been too complicated. “I re­ally like that this model has a dis­play so I can con­trol the heat­ing times and tell ex­actly what is go­ing on. I know it has a Hy­brid set­ting for lower tem­per­a­tures, in case the water heat­ing needs a boost. But with the cli­mate here in Piha we haven’t needed to use it, even with the ad­di­tional sum­mer guests and reg­u­lar af­ter-beach show­er­ing. “We don’t have bills much be­yond $150 a month even in the depths of win­ter, and con­sid­er­ably less in the height of sum­mer. That’s why we are keen to stay with this tech­nol­ogy.”
