Learn how a heat pump water heater works below
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 than ever before. There are many sizes available and sizing is determined by the number of people living in the home. The most common size is 40 or 50 gallons and is typically adequate for a residence occupied by three or four people.
Hybrid Electric Water Heaters:
Hybrid Electric models are basically standard electric water heaters, with the addition of 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 also produce condensate, and that must be drained somewhere. Hybrid Electric Water Heaters are typically available in 50,65 & 80 gallons. These systems 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 elements off and rely strictly on the heat pump. (normally in warmer weather months). A Hybrid Electric Water Heater will typically cost around $300 a year to operate for a family of four. A standard electric water heater will typically cost around $700 a year to operate. Hybrid Electric Water Heaters are Energy Star rated, and often qualify for incentives from your local utility.
