Are Heat Pump Water Heaters Better for the Environment?

Because heat pump water heaters use such a small amount of electricity to heat water in the storage tank, they don’t produce as many carbon dioxide emissions as traditional water heaters do.

They’re very energy-efficient, just like tankless water heaters, so a heat pump water heater is an excellent choice for homeowners who care about the environment and want to reduce the pollutants their home puts into the air.

How Do Heat Pump Water Heaters Work?

Heat pump water heaters transfer heat from the surrounding air and use it to heat water in a storage tank. This is much more energy-efficient than standard water heaters, which generate heat using heating elements.

The results are impressive: Heat pump water heaters are 2 to 4 times more efficient than traditional models, including both electric and gas-powered water heaters.

“From my perspective, Barnett did a seamless and carefree installation of a new hybrid (heat-pump/electric) water heater for me today. They were very professional, and both the estimator and installer were willing and able to answer my questions, and both were quite friendly. I also especially like the fact that they are going to handle all the paperwork for the extensive rebates that my system qualifies for right now.”

Heat Pump Water Heaters FAQs

The optimal location for a heat pump water heater is in the garage. They can be installed pretty much anywhere there’s space, but the installation can be quite invasive if the water heater isn’t in the garage.

Whether you have a gas or electric system, a heat pump water heater is a great option. Either way, you’ll save money, but in different ways. If your current system is gas, you’ll get more rebate money.

If your current system is electric, you won’t get as much rebate money, but you won’t have to spend extra running a new electrical line. Whether you have gas or electric, you’ll save on your energy bill every month if you switch to a hybrid water heater.

People with solar power are excellent candidates for a heat pump water heater. Having solar is the best way to maximize your savings.

Since a hybrid water heater is electric and not gas, it produces zero greenhouse gas emissions. These water heaters are also the most efficient units on the market. They use less electricity and put less strain on the electrical grid than any other water heating option.

Many factors determine how much you’ll save. The bigger your household, and the more you use your water heater, the more you’ll save each month. If you have solar power, the savings increase dramatically.

No. The most popular water heater brands, such as Bradford White, are built with a heat pump inside the unit. This is why the optimal location for installation is in the garage, with plenty of ventilation.

You can always switch to a heat pump water heater down the road, but the rebates are here for a limited time. It’s never too early to save money on your monthly energy bill.

The average life span is 10 to 12 years, which is relatively similar to any other water heater on the market. However, a hybrid water heater comes with a 10-year warranty standard, four years longer than a standard gas water heater.

Installing a heat pump water heater at your home is still a good option, even if your home is on liquid propane. The rebate amount will be less since homeowners must have gas and electricity from their utility company to receive the total amount.

Yes. It may not be obvious, but many contractors use these terms interchangeably.
