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 held in the storage tank. Heat pump water heaters also retain the same ability to heat with elements just as standard water heaters do and are often referred to as “Hybrid” water heaters.

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
- Sound – Heat pump water heaters generate sounds similar to a small 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. This air can be ducted out of the installation area if desired.
- Size/height – Heat pump water heaters are slightly larger than standard electric water heaters.
