Why Electric Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters?
  • An electric hybrid heat pump water heater uses electricity differently — moving heat rather than generating it, so you use 2-to-3 times less energy. Less energy means more savings on your bill.
  • You can select a specific water temperature, choose different operating modes depending on demand, even set it to “vacation” when you’re gone.
  • They help dehumidify damp spaces, such as your garage or basement where they are typically installed.
  • Electric hybrid heat pump water heaters typically come with 10-year warranties, and have an average life span of 13 years.
  • You may apply for a Federal tax credit until December 31, 2020 for qualifying, purchased units on top of your PSE discount. For updated details and to learn more click here.

Is a new heat pump water heater right for you?
  • Use this interactive decision tool to find out.
  • Your new electric hybrid heat pump water heater should be located in a space with about 1,000 cubic ft. For example, in a basement with 7-foot ceilings, a water heater would need open floor space of roughly 10 by 14 feet around the unit.
  • For the most efficient operation, the air temperature where the water heater is installed should average 40 degrees Fahrenheit or above. Garages and unfinished (unconditioned) basements are ideal for heat pump water heaters.
  • Because the heat pump exhausts cool air in the area where it is located, the water heater must be installed in a location that would isolate cool air, or is ducted to the outside. Examples are in a garage or unheated/unfinished basement, attic or crawlspace.
  • Electric hybrid heat pump water heaters make about as much noise as an air conditioner. Consider this when making your purchase and placement decisions.
