Heat pump technology is already at work in your home, enabling your refrigerator and air conditioning system to function. Heat pumps exploit the special properties of a refrigerant by pumping this compound through evaporating and condensing cycles to “move” heat from one location to another.
A HPWH moves heat from the room where the appliance is installed to a heat exchanger (condenser) located inside or around the hot water storage tank. As shown in the drawing, an electric resistance heating element is incorporated into the design in case backup heating is required. Like other ENERGY STAR® water heaters, heat pump water heaters are insulated to reduce standby heat loss.
To find out whether or not you should have a heat pump water heater installed, it’s helpful to examine the advantages and limitations as described below.
