How do Hot Water Heat Pumps work?

Great news! Having a hot water heat pump can help your household reduce your electricity cost and your impact on the environment! Find out how below…

What is a Hot Water Heat Pump System?

A hot water heat pump absorbs warmth from surrounding air and transfers it into your water, which is why they are also sometimes referred to as ‘air-source heat pumps’. They operate on electricity but are roughly three times more efficient than a conventional electric water heater, so they can save money and energy while reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

How does it work?

Instead of using electricity to directly heat water, like a traditional electric water heater does, a Hot Water Heat Pump System uses electricity to operate a pump that circulates a refrigerant around the system. This refrigerant picks up heat from the air and transfers it to the water. In this way it uses much less electricity to heat water than a traditional electric water heater. It’s like a refrigerator working in reverse!
