TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR ENERGY SAVINGS
Most homeowners who have heat pumps use them to heat and cool their homes. However, a heat pump also can be used to heat water. Heat pumps use compressors, refrigerant, heat exchangers and the difference in outside air temperature versus indoor temperatures to produce heating and cooling.
A heat pump water heater (HPWH) works like a refrigerator in reverse. It absorbs heat from the surrounding air using it to heat water within the tank. Because the HPWH uses heat pump technology, it can be 2 to 3 times more efficient than a traditional resistance electric water heater. This means it will cost you less to produce hot water for your home. Ask your local electric cooperative if you might qualify for a $500 rebate on a new heat pump water heater!
