How It Works

How does it work? Heat pump water heaters work like a refrigerator, but in reverse – while a refrigerator pushes heat from inside the unit out to the air around it, a heat pump water heater uses fans and an evaporator to pull warmth from the surrounding air and transfers it to water in the storage tank.

How do I know if it will work for me? Heat pump water heaters are ideal for homeowners looking to:

  • replace an old, inefficient electric water heater
  • lower household energy consumption
  • take control of how efficiently their hot water heater operates
