Heat Pump Water Heater – Existing Homes

A heat pump water heater is a highly efficient alternative to a traditional electric resistance storage water heater.

How Does it Work?

Smart thermostat

A heat pump water heater is a hybrid system that combines heat pump technology with the heating elements of a traditional electric resistance storage water heater. It absorbs heat from the surrounding air while discharging cooler air. The absorbed heat is transferred into the water tank.  Hybrid refers to the use of the heat pump as the primary way to heat the water.  When hot water draw is excessive the heating elements will turn on to supplement the heat pump.
