The technology used to heat homes with heat pumps has now been integrated into a unit that will allow you to heat water for your home. As with standard heat pumps, the device pulls heat from the air surrounding the water heater, using refrigerant, coils and compressors (essentially, like a refrigerator in reverse). The heat-pump style water heater is typically a hybrid, one that also allows you to generate hot water using alternate forms of energy, such as gas or electricity. The professionals at Public Service Plumbers can help you understand the benefits of a hybrid heat pump water heater, and determine if it makes sense for your home.

The Benefits of a Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater
A hybrid heat pump water heater operates on electricity, but typically costs about half as much as an electric water heater. The Rheems 50 gallon tank model has an extremely space-efficient design, allowing it to be installed in limited spaces in a basement, garage or other room. The hybrid heat pump water heater uses the same connectors as other water heaters, so requires no specialized equipment or tools, and can be easily serviced.
According to a study conducted by Consumer Reports, though the hybrid heat pump water heaters are more expensive than comparable gas or electric water heaters, homeowners save enough in energy costs to pay for the difference within five to seven years. Many of the models use less than 60% of the energy used by a typical electric water heater (electric water heaters account for about half of all water heaters sold annually).
