In essence the Madimack replaced what was going to be three different appliances. The benefits of an all in one system to service our hot water, air conditioning and under floor heating definitely had benefits through the building process but recently after receiving our power bill has proven the real benefits are still to come. Have already recommended these guys to a girlfriend who is just about to build.
The hydronic fan coil system powered by their Madimack multifunction heat pump has exceeded our expectations not only for the athletes comfort, but more importantly our running costs have been slashed. We went from paying over $2500.00 per month to under $700. I can not speak highly enough of this system!
My Wife and I used these guys for our pool heating. Richard took time to explain how the system works and how cheaper it is rather than using GAS. Not alone that but their price measures up too.Thanks again Madimack we are now seeing the rewards.
Heat pumps are used to provide heating because less high-grade energy is required for their operation than appears in the released heat. Most of the energy for heating comes from the external environment, and only a fraction comes from electricity (or some other high-grade energy source required to run a compressor). In electricity powered heat pumps, the heat transferred can be three or four times larger than the electrical power consumed, giving the system a coefficient of performance (COP) of 3 or 4, as opposed to a COP of 1 for a conventional electrical resistance heater, in which all heat is produced from input electrical energy.
Sweden is Leading the Charge
The heat pump has had a remarkable development in Sweden over the last few decades. Sweden is today number one in terms of heat pump penetration per capita. In addition, the Swedish heat pump industry has an annual turnover of € 700-700 million. Smaller size heat pumps for residential heating have had the largest impact on the Swedish market. More than half of all detached houses have a heat pump installed. Swedish heat pumps – in total – supply 30TWh of heat annually (2013), which is three times as much energy compared to wind power (Swedish wind power 2013 produced a record of 10TWh).
