Heat Pump & Electric Water Heaters
Home Energy Products offers two types of Water Heaters
Standard Electric Water Heaters:
Electric Water Heaters can easily be installed in most locations in your home. They do not need to vent to the outside of the building and do not require oil or gas to operate. Today's electric water heaters are more efficient then ever before. There are many sizes and brands available. The size of the water heater is based on the number of people living in the home. The most common size is 40 gallons. That is typically used in a home with 3-4 people living there.
Hybrid Electric Water Heaters:
Hybrid Electric models are basically standard electric water heaters, with a heat pump on top. Hybrid units do have some limitations when being installed. They must be in an appropriate size room, or a closet with louvered doors. They produce condensate, and that must be drained somewhere. Hybrid Electric Water Heaters are typically available in 50 gallon or 80 gallon sizes, and are available from several different manufacturers today. These units absorb heat from the room, which is used to heat the water. They have electric coils to boost heating when needed. You can even turn the electric part off all together (normally in warmer weather months). A 50 gallon Hybrid Electric Water Heater will typically cost around $200 a year to operate for a family of four. A standard electric water heater of the same size will typically cost around $600 a year to operate. Hybrid Electric Water Heaters are Energy Star rated, and often qualify for financial incentives.
