How Does a Heat Pump Water Heater Work?

Rather than generate heat directly, heat pump water heaters transfer heat from one place to another using electricity. Air conditioners and refrigerators already use heat pump technology. An HPWH is like a refrigerator working in reverse.

While refrigerators remove heat from an enclosed compartment and expel the heat to the surrounding air, HPWHs take the heat from the surrounding air and transfer it to an enclosed tank to heat water.

When you have a high demand for hot water, an HPWH can automatically switch to standard electric resistance heat. That’s why they’re often referred to as hybrid water heaters.

What Are the Benefits of Heat Pump Water Heater Installation?

Like other appliances, heat pumps have their advantages and limitations. For instance, HPWHs typically cost more than standard tank-type water heaters. Nonetheless, some of the reasons to invest in an HPWH include:

  • Lower heating costs and greater efficiency: When compared to conventional water heaters, HPWHs are twice as efficient.
  • Rebates or incentives: Depending on where you live, there may be rebates or other incentives that will help to absorb the high initial cost of investing in an HPWH.
  • Cooling and dehumidification: In addition to heating water, an HPWH will cool and dehumidify the space in which it is installed. This can be a huge plus for hot and humid areas like laundries and kitchens that can benefit from cooling.

If your water heater is acting up or past its prime, we also offer professional water heater replacements.

When to Call for Heat Pump Water Heater Repairs

While modern systems are built to last when professionally installed and serviced, there will come a time when you’ll need professional heat pump repair services in Portland. If your unit fails to meet your hot water needs, or you hear a strange or loud noise coming from inside the tank, then there’s likely a problem that needs to be addressed.

The Sunset team who sold and installed a new furnace and AC unit in my condominium were wonderful. They were knowledgeable, professional, thorough, respectful and friendly. They went the extra mile to be sure other residents were not impacted and I was happy. They took special care to leave no trace of their being here, except for new and vastly improved heating and cooling system.
