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

Podcast

Overview

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.
