Water heating accounts for 15-20% of all energy use in homes with electric water heating. Water-saving devices, such as aerators, efficient showerheads and thermostatic shut-off valves, reduce the energy required to heat water as less water is consumed. BPA supports water heating by offering heat pump water heater, aerator, showerhead and thermostatic shut-off valve measures.
Water Heating at a glance
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.
There are different types of heat pump water heaters:
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.
Check out this video from Northwest Energy Efficiency Alliance, or NEEA, to learn how heat pump water heaters work.
User-friendly digital temperature controls with vacation settings and options for operating modes.
