The benefits of heat pump water heaters

Posted: Sep 13, 2017

Heat pump water heaters (HPWHs) have been around since the 1980s, but today’s models are a far cry from their predecessors. They are performing well for customers, and when compared with standard electric water heaters, the energy savings can’t be beaten. By making a switch to a HPWH, customers can save up to 60% on their water heating costs year after year.

HPWHs can also be a business booster, since the profitability of HPWHs is typically higher than standard electric tanks, making each sale a valuable opportunity. Learn More in Plumbing and Mechanical Magazine.

What are Tiers?

Energy efficiency levels and features of electric hybrid water heaters vary by product tier. Higher tier products have greater efficiency and more advanced product features.

The higher the energy factor, the more efficient the water heater.
