A heat pump water heater uses heat pump technology to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. This makes them two to three times more efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. A super-efficient Heat Pump Water Heater may reduce energy waste and hot water costs by 50 percent or more.
All EWEB electric customers may be eligible for a rebate to install a new heat pump water heater.
Heat pump water heaters can be installed in a variety of locations, including a garage, utility room or basement. Please consider the following when determining whether a heat pump water heater is right for you:
