What is a heat pump water heater?

 

A heat pump water heater is a type of water heater that uses electricity to move heat from the surrounding air or ground into a tank to heat water. It works by circulating a refrigerant through a cycle of evaporation, compression, and condensation, similar to a refrigerator or air conditioner.  Heat pump water heaters are more efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters because they do not generate heat directly. Instead, they move heat from one place to another, using only a small amount of electricity to power the heat pump compressor and fan.

Overall, heat pump water heaters can save homeowners a significant amount of money on their energy bills compared to traditional electric water heaters. They are also a more environmentally-friendly option, since they produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions than gas or oil-fired water heaters.
