Save Money With A Heat Pump Water Heater

Are You Ready For The Next Innovation in Heating Water?

 

What is a Heat Pump Water Heater?

Heat pumps have been used for years in the heating and cooling industry.  Recently some innovative thinkers decided to combine the heat pump and the water heater.  What does this mean for you?  This means that your water is heated by the ambient air rather than using electric heating elements or gas burners to heat your water.  If you are trying to understand how a heat pump water heater works let us explain it to you in the simplest terms.  A heat pump water heater works opposite of your air conditioner.  Your air conditioner pulls the heat out of your house and pumps it outside.  A heat pump pulls heat from the ambient air and that heat in your water.    A heat pump is many times more efficient and cost effecctive than an electric heating element or even natural gas.  If your water demand gets to be more than the heat pump can produce at that point the electric heating elements will kick in and help heat the water then shut back off.
