Heat Pump Water Heaters
You may not often think about exactly how it is the water in your hot water tank is heated. At the end of the day, as long as the water comes out hot, what difference does it make how it works? Unless there was a way you could still have dependable hot water while using half of the energy it takes to heat it.
Traditional water heaters use electricity or combustion to create the heat that is then transferred to the water you use in your sinks, washing machine, dishwasher and showers. But with a heat pump water heater, you can take the excess heat that is already inside of your home’s air and repurpose it to heat the water your home needs!
So, how can that work?
What Makes a Heat Pump Water Heaters Different
With direct coil water heaters, electricity is sent to a heating element inside of a large tank. This heating element stays red-hot until all of the water in the tank has reached the proper temperature. This can make up a large amount of your heating costs.
With oil or gas water heaters, fossil fuel is used to heat up the tank. This comes with the risk of releasing harmful byproducts in your living space and has many negative environmental implications.
With a heat pump water heater, a fan pulls in the ambient heat that already exists in your home and uses it to heat the condenser coil inside of your hot water tank. This uses much less energy and is two to three times more energy efficient!
