Heat pump water heaters
There are different types of heat pump water heaters:
Heat pump water heaters are up to 50% more efficient than standard electric water heaters. To heat water, heat pump technology is used to extract heat from surrounding air and transfer it into the storage tank.
- Integrated units: Also called one-piece, drop-ins, or standalones. Some of these heat pump water heaters can be fitted with intake and/or exhaust ducts, according to the needs of a particular installation location.
- Add-on units: Units attached to an existing storage water heater. Utilities do not typically offer incentives for this type of unit.
- Split systems: Feature a heat pump compressor that is separate from the tank to provide flexibility in installation locations.
