The Heat Pump Water Heater Specialists

Heat pump water heaters are the newest development in water heater technology, and they have a lot to offer for the average homeowner.

Benefit from California’s Water Heater Rebate

Usually, the problem with buying more energy-efficient plumbing appliances that will save you money in utilities is that they will cost you more upfront. Not so with heat pump water heaters. Thanks to California’s rebate program, where the typical family may get $3,800 worth in rebates and low-income families get even more, head pump water heaters and gas water heaters are comparable in price. That makes switching to the more energy-efficient technology a simpler decision.

You can save money upfront, and you’ll save more every month with a heat pump water heater. While a heat pump water heater uses geothermal energy to increase your water’s temperature for much less energy expenditure, they typically come with a pretty big downside: they take much longer to recharge. The brilliant part of heat pump water heaters is that they combine this technology with a conventional tanked water heater, so your unit can switch into standard mode when it needs to heat water in a hurry. That way you get the best of both worlds and the downsides of neither.

The result is that your monthly utility bills should get smaller, thanks to a better energy factor.

How Big of a Water Heater Do I Need?

We recommend sizing heat pump water heaters a little larger than you would a typical natural gas or electric tanked water heater. For example, if you’re used to a gas water heater with a 40 gallon storage tank, you’ll probably want 65 gallons or more out of your heat pump water heater. If you’re used to a 50 gallon water heater, 85 gallons is recommended.

Heat pump water heaters operate differently than you’re used to, and this extra capacity means you won’t be suddenly left waiting for water to heat.

The best way to size a new water heater, however, is to speak with a dependable plumber. Our plumbers will be able to assess your home’s day to day hot water needs and pick a model that is up for the task. They can also determine if your need new venting or utility lines for your new heater, and how that will impact the overall cost.

Why is My Water Heater Leaking?

Leaks are one of the most common issues you can run into with a water heater. There are many reasons a water heater might leak, including a bad pipe connection, loose gaskets, a damaged drain valve, a faulty T&P valve, tank corrosion, and more. It’s also easy to mistake a different kind of water buildup for a water heater leak, including condensation or a nearby leaking washing machine.

Since there are so many different ways a water heater can leak, it’s best to call a plumber at the first sign of trouble. Our technicians can determine the exact cause and location of your leak, and more importantly, find out if it makes more sense to repair or replace the unit. For example, a cracked tank that leaks from the bottom usually requires a replacement, while an inlet connection that’s leaking from the top is a relatively quick fix.

Don’t Forget to Flush Your Water Heater

If you’re like most homeowners, flushing your water heater probably isn’t the biggest item on your to-do list. But without flushing your water heater every couple of years, sediment builds up, the pipes clog up, system efficiency goes down, your water starts looking cloudy and gross, and your water heater starts breaking more often.

The good news is that our water heater flushes are extremely fast and very affordable. Our technicians can descale most water heaters in an hour or less, and you’ll notice the difference immediately.
