Make savings appear out of thin air with a Midea heat pump

Harvest the free energy from our plentiful air to heat your water with the advanced Midea heat pump from Chromagen. This renewable energy water heating technology uses up to 65% less energy1 than a conventional water heater, whilst providing reliable hot water all day and night.


Modern & Stylish

A stylish slim line single piece unit incorporates a top-mounted compressor with compact footprint

Highly Efficient

Produces significantly more heat energy than the power input; saving on purchased energy

Handy Controller

Providing intuitive operation & helpful functions such as temp setting, timer & safety lock

Built in Frost Protection

Protecting the condenser from icing for complete peace of mind

Smart Technology

Heat pumps utilise an ingenious technology to efficiently transfer thermal energy directly from the surrounding air and into the water, and so do not rely on direct sun or fossil fuels to provide an energy source.

Did You Know?
A heat pump is like an energy multiplier. From 1 kW of power input, it can create over 4 kW’s of output heat2. That’s a performance efficiency of a remarkable 400%. Where as conventional electric storage water heaters can only convert 1 kW of input power into a maximum of 1 kW of output heat.


Energy Efficiency

Did You Know?
Water heating accounts for nearly a quarter of the energy use and greenhouse gas emissions in the average Australian home.

*Estimation based on HP280 (RSJ-23/300RDN3-B) STC’s in Zone 3 under medium load, obtained from independent laboratory test results and followed by TRNSYS modelling and a retail electricity cost of $0.30c per kWh.

Operational modes

With a Midea heat pump, set up and operation monitoring is made simple thanks to an amazing, in built user-friendly controller.

ECO (Heat Pump Only) mode: The standard mode where the highest efficiency is achieved

Hybrid Mode: The Heat Pump & E-heater operate together to ensure the set temperature is achieved

E-Heater: When the air temperature drops to below 5°C, the heat pump will automatically select E-heater mode for an electric hot water boost


Wide Operating Range

Operates as low as 5°C in ECO mode & between -20°C & 45°C with additional E-heat boost

Tank-Wrapped Condenser Coil

For efficient heat transfer & preventing water contamination

Low Operating Noise

Operating at a very low 48/49 dBA you will hardly know it’s there!

Auto Disinfection

Periodically heating the water beyond its set temp to prevent the growth of bacteria and legionella

Power Outage Memory

Settings are retained in the event of a power outage

How it Works

1. A fan draws in air, containing heat energy, across the evaporator
2. The evaporator turns the liquid refrigerant into a gas
3. The compressor pressurises the refrigerant into a hot gas
4. The hot gas inside the condenser coil heats the water inside the coil-wrapped tank
5. The refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after heating the water and continues to the evaporator for the process to start again

1 Energy use reduction based on CER (AS/NZS 4234) modelling, in Zone 3.
2 Average COP is 4.15 based on AS/NZS 5125 test condition 2.
