How Does a Heat Pump Work With a Water Heater?

If you’re familiar with a heat pump, you know that it’s a type of heating and cooling system that operates similarly to and air conditioner, except it can switch the direction it moves heat so it brings heat into a home. A heat pump water heater uses this same technology, only it applies it to water in a tank.

With a conventional electric water heater, the heat comes from running currents through heating elements inside the tank, i.e. electrical resistance heating. But a heat pump water heater doesn’t generate heat at all. Instead, it uses refrigerant to move heat from the air around the water heater and then release it into the tank through a heat exchanger.

Advantages of Using This Technology

Making the change from the standard electric water heater to a heat pump water heater brings a number of benefits. The most important one is the difference in cost to run a heat pump model. Electricity is generally a more expensive form of energy than natural gas, which is why natural gas water heaters are preferred for homes with gas connections. A heat pump water heater runs on electricity, but it consumes far less than a regular electric model. This is because a heat pump only draws on electricity to run the components that allow it to move heat, rather than expend large amounts to generate heat in heating elements. Making the switch to a heat pump water heater can result in large annual savings for a home on electrical bills.
