Heat pumps are typically used to heat and cool a home. But, heat pumps can also be used to heat water. A heat pump water heater can work as a stand-alone unit or as a water heating/climate conditioning system. The efficiencies of heat pump water heaters can pay for themselves in energy savings in as little as three years.
How heat pump water heaters work
A heat pump works like a refrigerator in reverse. While a fridge removes heat from its enclosed space, a heat pump water heater takes in heat from surrounding air, transferring it to water in its tank.
Heat pump water heater options
A heat pump water heating system can be purchased as a stand-alone system with an integrated tank. Or, it’s possible to retrofit a heat pump to work with an existing conventional tank water heater.
Choosing the right water heater
Getting a water heater that is too big is just as bad as getting one that is too small. That’s why MoreVent techs take time to survey your water use before making a recommendation. In the event a heat pump water heater isn’t a fit for your hot water needs, we’ll provide you alternatives such a traditional tank water heater or tankless water heater.
Heat pump water heater installation
No matter which type you choose, installation day is the most important day in the life of your water heater. That’s why experienced MoreVent water heater installers take the necessary steps to prevent unnecessary future system malfunctions, ensuring your water heater operates safely and efficiently.
