How Heat Pump Water Heaters Work
The combination of a heat pump and a water heater isn’t a complex one. A heat pump is designed to move heat from one place to another by circulating refrigerant and putting it under pressure with a compressor. The heat pump absorbs heat from the air along a coil, then moves the heat to another coil where the heat is released. The heat pump in an HVAC system moves this heat between the air outside and the air inside. The heat pump in a water heater moves this heat from the air outside the water heater to the water inside the water heater tank. It’s basic but also ingenious, because it allows for electrical-powered water heating without using electrical resistance.
Replace an Electric Water Heater With a Heat Pump Water Heater
Electrical resistance heating is what you see in toaster when the current running through wires turns the wires hot. A standard water heater does the same thing, except with a coil of wires inside the tank. This type of heating consumes a large amount of energy and leads to high electrical bills. Heat pump water heaters don’t have this problem, because they only use electricity to power the components to move heat, not directly generate it. The same way that a heat pump replacing an electric furnace saves money, a heat pump water heater replacing an electric tank water heater saves money.
