MPreg is one of the major hubs in the Central Heat area in NSW, with a massive heat pump that delivers hot water and hot meals to homes.
The problem is that the heat pump can’t handle the temperature changes as quickly as the rest of the system and this is what caused the problems.
In an email to Mashable, MPreg said the issue was being investigated.
“MPreg’s central heating system is not currently able to cope with the high temperatures at the centre of our heating system,” it said.
MPreg says the heat pumps are not broken. “
We are working to determine what has caused this, and we will update the community in due course.”
MPreg says the heat pumps are not broken.
It’s not clear if the heaters were faulty.
In response to the heat problems, MPre said it had installed an automatic heat pump in one of its centres and had put in a new, automated system to meet its needs.
“A new automated system will be deployed in the next week,” it wrote.
MPre also said it was working with the state to provide better monitoring of the heat supply.
The heat problems are the latest heat related incidents to emerge from NSW’s central heat zone, which includes Sydney and the Gold Coast.
Last week, the Queensland Government announced a $1.8 million heat pump overhaul.
In July, MPrec introduced a new heat pump system, which is meant to help reduce the impact of the hot weather on residents.
