What is a Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heater?
You’ve heard of heat pumps for your air conditioning, but did you know that the same technology an be applied to heating water? Heat pump water heaters take the heat from the surrounding air and transfer it to water in an enclosed tank. So, what makes them hybrid? Hybrid heat pump water heaters have the ability to switch over to electric resistance heating during times when there is high demand for hot water.
Energy-Efficient Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters
One of the main benefits of a hybrid heat pump water heater is energy savings. According to Energy.gov, if every residential water heater in the United States were ENERGY STAR certified heat pump water heaters, we would save nearly 12 billion dollars and prevent 140 billion pounds of carbon pollution each year. In fact, compared to a conventional water heater, you get at least twice as much hot water with a hybrid heat pump water heater for the same amount of energy consumed.
