How a Heat Pump Water Heater Can Save You Money

In need of a water heater replacement? You probably already know about the two major options available for homes throughout the country: tank water heaters and tankless models. But did you know that you may have another option?

Heat pump water heaters are an excellent choice as well, and you might save a lot of money when you upgrade your system. Learn more in the guide below!

How a Heat Pump Water Heater Works

A heat pump water heater works via a process of heat exchange: refrigeration. This may seem odd, as most people are under the assumption that refrigeration is a cooling process. Really, refrigeration moves heat from one area to another, just like how a refrigerator moves heat out of the installation.

In a heat pump water heater, this process is reversed. Warm air moves over a set of coils in the tank, and it’s absorbed by refrigerant gas in the coils. The refrigerant travels down into the tank, releasing heat to heat up the water before it moves to your faucets.

How a Heat Pump Water Heater Saves Many Homeowners Money

Heat pump water heaters are excellent fixtures for any household looking for an environmentally-friendly, reliable water heater. But it’s especially beneficial to anyone who’s been using an electric tank water heater already. Some homes don’t have the necessary gas hookup for a natural gas water heater, so they must rely on electric appliance alternatives.

Electric resistance heating, the method used in standard electric tank water heaters, is highly inefficient. Generating all of the heat uses a lot of energy. Heat pump water heaters might cost a little more upfront, but the energy savings are worth it. Moving heat around is a much more efficient process than generating heat, so you’re likely to notice a drop in your monthly costs.
