Watch Video

Standard electric water heaters create their own heat, which wastes energy. Heat pump water heaters, on the other hand, efficiently pull in excess heat from the surrounding area and use it to heat your water.

Be More Efficient

By transferring heat instead of creating it, heat pump water heaters use up to 60% less electrictricy to heat the same amount of water.

Get More Control

Heat pump water heaters have operational controls that offer more flexibility than standard electric water heaters. A digital control panel allows you to easily set operation modes to maximize efficiency. Many units have a vacation mode that saves energy while you're away.
