How Mixergy operates with heat pumps

17 December 2018

Mixergy smart hot water tanks are designed to work more efficiently with heat pumps than many conventional cylinders do. Unlike regular cylinders which transfer heat via a large, high surface area coil, where the heat transfer becomes steadily less and less effective as the tank fills up with hot water, the Mixergy system makes use of an in-line plate heat exchanger. By using an in-line heat exchanger,  water can be pumped through the exchanger and instantly heated. This maintains the Mixergy system’s ability to selectively heat the tank and allows water to be delivered 5x faster, with a 10% increase in efficiency.
