So What’s a Heat Pump Water Heater?

Typically, a heat pump is used for cooling or heating a home. It actually uses refrigeration to transfer heat. (That’s how an air conditioner cools your home in the first place.) A liquid or chemical blend can be used to absorb heat and move it into or out of a space.

A heat pump water heater takes advantage of the versatility of this technology. It can absorb heat from around the outside of the water heater. Heat is transferred into a heat exchanger within the tank, which keeps the water warm.

How It Differs from a Conventional Tank Water Heater

Other tank water heaters use more conventional means of heating up water. A water heater that uses gas or any other fuel source must light a flame on a burner in order to start heating the tank from the bottom up. People often choose gas water heaters over electric water heaters because natural gas may cost less.

Electric water heaters usually use electric resistance heating. This requires a lot of energy use as generating or producing heat is such an energy–intensive process.

A heat pump water heater does use electricity, but it uses it in a much different way. Moving heat is a more efficient process then generating heat; it requires much less energy.

Why Choose a Heat Pump Water Heater Instead

What all of this means is that choosing a heat pump water heater over a conventional electric tank water heater can help you save a lot of money. Over the years, the savings can offset the initial price.

As a matter of fact, if you require an electric water heater to be 55 gallons or more because you have a larger household, you may not be able to find a conventional electric tank water heater to fit your needs. They simply cannot meet federal efficiency requirements, but a heat pump water heater can. For some people, the heat pump water heater is the only option—f but it’s an excellent one.
