The Energy Show Podcast: What You Need to Know About Heat Pump Water Heaters



Listen to this episode of The Energy Show to unlock the future of home domestic hot water heating.

It’s not a matter of IF your hot water heater dies – but WHEN. According to the Department of Energy, the average lifespan of a hot water heater is 13 years. So if your hot water heater is over ten years old – or if you’re planning to electrify your home — the time to PLAN for a Heat Pump Water Heater (HPWH) is NOW.

Heat pump water heaters have become consumer favorites — and the bête noir of natural gas companies – because they have efficiencies in the range of 200-300%. Much more efficient than gas water heaters (70-80%), electric water heaters (99%) and tankless water heaters (70-99%). Plus, there are no dangerous exhaust fumes or methane fuel.
