Improve Energy Efficiency

Heat pumps water heaters are more efficient and require low maintenance. They are also more environmentally friendly because they are powered by electricity instead of natural gas.

In fact, a heat pump water heater can be two to three times more efficient than a conventional natural gas water heater because it transfers heat instead of generating it directly.

Heat pumps can help get hot water faster, which saves a lot of water by not having to run the shower until it heats up.

Heat Pump Water Heater FAQs

What is a Heat Pump Water Heater?

An electric water heater is an alternative to the traditional gas-burning water tank that is used to heat water. It uses electricity and the surrounding air instead of gas for fuel. Because of this, transferring heat requires less energy to control the temperature of the water. Most new electric units also have backup resistance elements – like a traditional water heater. These backup elements are reserved for situations where the ambient air temperature is not high enough.

How Does a Heat Pump Work?

Electric water heaters, or “heat pump water heaters” work like a refrigerator but reverse. Refrigerators use a compressor to pull heat and air from inside the fridge then transfers the heat externally in the room. A heat pump uses a similar compressor to take heat from the external air and transfers it internally to a storage tank that will heat the water.

What Size Heat Pump Do I Need?

To decide what pump size is right for your application, consider the size of your house and the available space for installation. These are the two biggest factors for determining what size pump should be installed.

Some common tank sizes are below:

  • 50gal.
  • 66gal.
  • 80gal.

Bigger may be better, but always remember to leave room to access and service your pump’s air filter.
