Neopower All In One Heat Pump 260L Solar Choice Heat Pumps Score Card

Price:  $$

  • The Neopower 260L All in One Heat Pump is priced at around $2600, placing this heat pump in the lower cost category.

Efficiency: Score: 3/5

  • The Neopower heat pump has a Coefficient of Performance (COP) of 4.33. Solar Choice tries to compare COP at 20°C, heating water from 15°C to 60°C. Based on this, the estimated COP for the Neopower unit under Solar Choice conditions would be slightly lower, around 4.1 to 4.3, due to the increased energy required to reach 60°C. Overall, the Neopower All in one 250L heat pump maintains high efficiency.

Warranty Offer: Score: 2/5

  • Neopower offers a 6-year warranty on the glass lined tank, 5 years on the refrigeration and electrical components, and 1 year on the sacrificial anode, PTR valve and consumable items. While the parts & components warranty is competitive the labour warranty is for only 1 year which is lower than many competitors on the market.

Customer Reviews: Limited Score: 2/5

  • Neopower launched their heat pump in October 2023 and only had a limited number of reviews. While those reviews are positive the small sample of reviews may not capture the full range of user experiences over the long term. Potential issues, performance variations, and reliability concerns may not be fully represented. Comprehensive reviews and broader user feedback are essential for making a well-informed decision

Functionality: Score: 4/5

  • The Neopower all in one 260L heat pump doesn’t have a stainless steel tank option however it does come with LCD display, WiFi app control, additional heating element, and operates quieter than some competitors at 43 decibels. In addition it uses R290 refrigerant which has a low global warming potential of just 3. These advanced features improve the user experience and overall value of the unit.
