“Is a Heat Pump Water Heater Right for Me?”

There was a time when we would get a lot of blank stares while talking to our customers about electric hybrid heat pump water heaters.

But ever since the federal government imposed new and stricter standards on water heater energy efficiency, heat pump water heaters are gaining added attention and new fans.  That’s because, second only to solar heat pump water heaters, electric hybrid heat pump models are the most energy efficient of them all.

More than that, they’re now the only type of electric storage tank water heater you purchase with more than 55 gallons of storage capacity.  No big deal, right?  Well, it could be if you don’t have enough space for one.  You see, an electric hybrid heat pump system can only be installed in a space approximately the size of a 12’ x 12’ room, providing enough ambient air for the heat pump function to work effectively.

That’s right, the heat pump portion of the system uses the air around it to heat the water inside the storage tank.  Electricity serves as a back-up when more hot water is needed than the heat pump can provide at any one time.

Best of all, you can save up to $370 a year on your hot water heating costs when you switch to an electric hybrid heat pump system.

Contact Arnold & Sons Plumbing today for more information and a free in-home assessment of your family’s hot water needs along with a new system quote.  We look forward to this and every opportunity to serve you.
