Heat Pump Water Heating
Many homeowners use heat pumps to heat and cool their homes. Heat pumps, which don’t produce heat, but instead use electricity to move it from one place to another, function like a refrigerator in reverse. What alot of people don’t know is that the heat that they move can also be used to heat water at the same time, making them up to two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric water heaters.
Potential Energy Savings
While heat pump water heater systems typically have higher initial costs than conventional water heaters, their operating costs tend to be alot lower, which can offset their higher purchase and installation prices. ENERGY STAR qualified heat pump water heaters can save the average household almost $300 per year on its electric bills compared to a standard electric water heater. The payback period is around 3 years as well.
