Electric Hybrid Hot Water Heaters are Gaining in Popularity

Did you know that electric hybrid hot water heaters provide property owners with an innovative and energy-efficient water heating solution? In fact, they are built to be the most energy-efficient solution available on the market. In essence, electric hybrid hot water heaters use your home or building’s electricity combined with a heat pump technology system. A fan, located at the top of the hybrid electric heat pump’s water tank, pulls air from the surrounding area through an evaporator. The refrigerant in the evaporator unit actually absorbs the heat in the air.

In addition, the refrigerant travels through a compressor that raises both the pressure and the temperature. The heated refrigerant then passes through a condenser coil that’s located around the water tank. The coil transfers the heat to the water contained within the tank. The bottom line is that an electric hybrid hot water tank uses a combination of electricity and a heat pump that utilizes the existing heat within your property to heat the water in the tank. The technologically advanced hot water heating system saves a significant amount of energy and money because the pump utilizes heat in your property that’s already being produced.

This will save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars on your energy bill each year when compared to a standard hot water tank. Although electric hybrid hot water heaters tend to be a bit more expensive, they do have a significantly longer lifespan. When you combine that with the fact that they save you a lot of money on your energy bill, it’s a no brainer. In addition, there are many tax credits and rebates available the lower the initial installation costs. In the long run, you will earn back all of the money that you invested in the electric hybrid hot water heater.

By using the existing heat in your home or building, an electric hybrid hot water heater can actually save you over 60% on your electric bill. It will also reduce the negative impact that your water heater has on the environment, which is a key to going Green!
