Swap Your Water Heater and Save $1,000
Water heating is typically the second highest energy expense in your home and can account for up to 19 percent of your home energy costs. 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.
The system works like a refrigerator in reverse. While a refrigerator pulls heat from inside and releases it into the surrounding room, a heat pump water heater pulls heat from the surrounding air and releases it—at a higher temperature—into a tank to warm up the water inside.
Benefits of a Heat Pump Water Heater
According to an EPA study, a family of four could save $350 annually by switching to a heat pump water heater from a conventional electric unit—that adds up to thousands in savings over the heater’s 10-to-15-year lifespan.
If every residential electric water heater in the country were replaced with a heat pump water heater, 140 billion pounds of annual greenhouse gas emissions would be prevented, equivalent to the emissions from more than 13 million vehicles.*
- 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.
Get $1,000 Off a More Efficient Water Heater
We’re offering a $1,000 rebate when you purchase a new heat pump water heater. A desuperheater is a small, auxiliary heat exchanger that uses superheated gases from the heat pump's compressor to heat water. This hot water then circulates through a pipe to the home's storage water heater tank.
If your home is in the area affected by the Westchester natural gas moratorium, you can receive up to an additional 30% off your installation, on top of our other rebates.
