When it comes to heating water for your home or business heat pumps offer the highest efficiency. Heat pump water heaters are 2 to 3 times more efficient than any other water heater. Whether you are trying to save money or lower your carbon footprint they are hard to beat.
You may wonder what a heat pump is. In simplest terms it's a device that moves heat from a colder spot to a warmer spot. You already have one in your home, your refrigerator.
In the HVAC world the term heat pump is more commonly used when the goal is to provide heat. Like with making hot water or heating a room. The word we use for cooling a space is an air conditioner. It's the same technology. We just have historically been more interested in cooling with these devices than heating with them. Because of their excellent efficiency this is now changing.
Heat pump water heaters are arguably the best way to make solar hot water. Traditionally solar hot water has been made by using tubes filled with fluid that heat up in the sun. This works great but only works well in our climate for 9 months of the year. With a heat pump you can make hot water with your solar electric system all year long. Usually at a lower cost.
