How do heat pump water heaters work?
Heat pump water heaters work like a refrigerator, but in reverse – while a refrigerator pushes heat from inside the unit out to the air around it, a heat pump water heaters pull warmth from the surrounding air and transfers it to water in the storage tank.
Is it right for you?
Heat pump water heaters are ideal for homeowners looking to…
- Replace an old, inefficient electric water heater
- Lower household energy consumption
- Take control of how efficiently their hot water heater operates
While the purchase price for heat pump water heaters is higher than the average standard electric unit, current tax credits and rebates available, as well as reducing your water heating costs by up to 50%, make them an excellent value for your home.
Where can I install a heat pump water heater?
Heat pump water heaters can be installed in a variety of heated and unheated locations such as a garage, basement or utility room. Click here for some helpful tips for self-installation to be used with manufacturer’s guidelines.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF AN EXISTING LOCATION
Many heat pump water heaters can be installed in the same spot as current standard electric water heaters and take advantage of existing connections (cold water supply, hot water outlet, electrical connection, temperature/pressure relief valve, and drain).
THINGS TO CONSIDER
- Space – Units require at least 1,000 cubic feet of air-flow around them, this is the equivalent of 10’x10’x10′ of space. Ducting kits are available which allow for installations into smaller spaces.
- Sound – Heat pump water heaters generate sounds similar to an electric fan, this is simply the sound of energy-efficient hot water.
- Cold air – While in operation, heat pump water heaters release cool, dry air into the surrounding space.
- Size/height – Heat pump water heaters are slightly larger than standard electric water heaters.
