The Outdoor Unit
The Black Diamond AquaCore Hot Water Heat Pump System incorporates an outdoor unit just like any heat pump space heating system. It uses electricity to absorb freely available warmth from the surrounding air and then transfers it to your home so it can provide energy efficient hot water heating all year round.
The system utilises environmentally conscious R32 refrigerant in the outdoor unit which has 1/3 the Global Warming Potential (GWP) of R410A commonly used in other systems, meaning it is better for the environment.
The Indoor Unit
The AquaCore ensures water is heated to 62°C and is fed directly into the top of the cylinder. This means that this water is ready to use straight away. In a traditional electric system it can take hours to heat the water cylinder enough to produce 60°C water from a cold tank situation.
Furthermore, the system features fast recovery of a full water tank and can reheat an entire 180L cylinder in 2 ½ hours where traditional electric cylinders can take up to 3 ¼ hours in winter*.

The Hot Water Cylinder
The Black Diamond AquaCore Hot Water Heat Pump System is designed to easily integrate with existing or new hot water cylinders so you can benefit from capital cost savings on retrofits.
