Swap Your Water Heater and Save $1,000

Heat pump water heaters warm your water just like standard models, but with much less energy, saving you thousands over the heater’s lifetime. On top of your year-round savings, we’re offering $1,000 or $80/MMBTU of annual savings back on your purchase of a new heat pump water heater.

The system works like a refrigerator in reverse. While a refrigerator pulls heat from inside and dumps it into the surrounding room, a heat pump water heater pulls heat from the surrounding air and dumps it—at a higher temperature—into a tank to heat up the water inside.

Heat pump water heaters are up to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters since they use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly.

Useful Tips:

  • Locations that remain in the 40º–90ºF range year-round. Heat pump systems typically work more efficiently in warmer climates because they remove heat from the air.
  • 1,000 cubic feet of air space around the water heater.
  • An installation space with excess heat, such as a furnace room. Heat-pump water heaters will not operate efficiently in a cold space. They tend to cool the spaces they are in.
