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.
While heat pump water heater systems typically have higher initial costs than conventional water heaters, their operating costs tend to be a lot 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.

I was completely satisfied by Edge Energy. They have consistently designed and reliably installed strong performance energy innovations for my home. Indeed the only reason that I installed SunPower panels was due to their recommendation.
Edge Energy responded quickly to my inquiries and provided clear answers. The technicians who oversaw the installation process were professional and I learned a great deal while interacting with them.
A friend recommended SunPower and Edge Energy and my expectations were exceeded. I have and will recommend both companies.
Edge Energy clearly prefers installing SunPower systems. They were professional and technically informed. They were reasonable and accommodating with contractural matters. The installation crews were polite and courteous. They did neat work and were very competent. They were extremely responsive to address problems that arose. I would recommend them without reservation. They put a good face on SunPower.
Edge Energy was excellent all around. Knowledgeable, friendly, willing to troubleshoot and correct issues that arose during the installation process.
