Hot Water Heat Pumps use electrical energy to move the heat and therefore don’t actually generate the heat. This makes heat pump systems far more energy efficient than gas water heaters or other traditional electric heating systems.
Heat pump water heaters use energy from the outdoor air or ground to heat water, which is stored in an insulated hot water tank. The outside air gets heated up by energy from the sun all year round. So even when the sun is not shining brightly, or it is the middle of winter, there is still solar heat energy in the air that is available for use.
Sustainable energy is the way of the future, so it’s great to know that your power bill will be good for the environment and won’t break the bank at the same time.
