Heat Pump (hybrid) Water Heater Service in Spokane, WA
Whether you’re looking to make your home more eco-friendly or lower your monthly energy bills, a heat pump water heater can be a smart investment for your home.
Compared to a standard electric water heater, a heat pump water heater uses 60% less energy. That can save you up to 10% on your monthly energy bill – or roughly $3,500 over the life of the water heater. Plus, the larger your household, the more you could potentially save.
How a Heat Pump Water Heater Works
Instead of generating heat directly, heat pump water heaters operate by moving heat from one place to another. Essentially, the heat pump works like a refrigerator in reverse – by pulling heat from the surrounding air and directing it into the tank. This process is 2-3 times more energy efficient while still delivering all the hot water your home needs.
Hybrid Function and Increased Control
Another advantage of heat pump water heaters is the ability to switch to standard electric resistance automatically. This is why heat pump water heaters are sometimes called hybrid water heaters. The hybrid mode can be beneficial during periods of high hot water use.
With a heat pump water heater, you have full control of various settings through the unit’s control panel. For example, if you did not want your system to automatically switch over to electric resistance, you can set it to regular heat pump mode. You can also select a specific water temperature or set the water heater to “vacation” when you’re away and do not need to store hot water.
Service Life and Warranty
Heat pump water heaters have a longer lifespan (around 13 to 15 years) than traditional electric water heaters (around 8 to 12 years). You can increase the service life even further with a water softener or water conditioner.
At Gold Seal, we offer a 6-year labor warranty and a 10-year manufacturer parts warranty on the heat pump water heater we install. So you can enjoy dependable hot water and peace of mind for many years to come.
