Looking for an energy-efficient solution for hot water in your home? A heat pump water heater may be the answer. A heat pump operates similarly to a standard air conditioner or refrigerator, using electricity to move heat from one place to another rather than generating heat directly. This means it uses much less energy compared to traditional electric or gas water heaters. At A.J. LeBlanc Heating, we specialize in the installation and service of heat pump water heaters, also known as hybrid water heaters. Looking to upgrade from your old hot water tank? Let our experienced technicians help you explore your options and make the switch to a heat pump system. Contact us today for more information.
A ‘heat pump’ is a device that moves heat from one place to another; it works much like an air conditioner or a refrigerator. While a refrigerator moves heat from your fridge to your kitchen, a heat pump water heater (HPWH) moves heat from your home into the hot water tank. When operating a HPWH will dehumidify and air condition your basement.
Hybrid water heaters utilize both a heat pump and electric coils to heat your homes water. Hybrid heat pump water heaters can run in strictly heat pump mode, strictly electric mode or a combination of both. When in hybrid mode a heat pump water heater will automatically cycle between the electric coils and heat pump coils.
The greatest savings and quickest payback will occur in regions where the average temperatures are colder (i.e. NH). Operating five months out of the year in the heat pump mode where electricity rates are two to three times higher will yield more savings than operating 10 months in the heat pump mode where electricity rates are lower.
Water heaters account for 14% to 25% of the total energy consumed in a typical home today. On average, they use more energy than a household’s refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer combined. Hybrid heat pump water heaters (HPWHs) are designed to dramatically decrease the cost of operation. In fact, a heat pump water heater can translate into quite significant savings for the homeowner over the course of its lifespan. Just how significant? With up to a 2.75 Energy Factor (EF) rating (compared to an average .87−.92 EF rating of a standard electric model), these innovative water heaters can cut annual operating costs by more than half.
A heat pump removes heat from ambient air. Hence there must be a considerable volume of air available; most heat pump manufacturers recommend about 750 ft3. Hybrid heat pump water heaters often require larger clearances from walls so that air can circulate properly, and they are often taller and heavier than standard water heaters. Most closets – even closets with louvered doors – are not appropriate for hybrid heat pump water heaters.
Various operating modes allow homeowners to choose the mode that best matches their lifestyle and adapt as their needs change.
