What Makes a Heat Pump Water Heater Installation Different?

Conventional water heaters raise the temperature of the water in their tanks by burning natural gas or using electrical resistance from heating elements in the tank. This process, although efficient, does consume a large amount of energy. A heat pump water heater provides an alternative to this.

Rather than generating heat like a traditional tank water heater, heat pump water heaters transfer heat from one place to another via a flow of refrigerant—this means it essentially works like a heat pump air conditioner does.

The Benefits of Heat Pump Water Heaters

The main benefit of the heat pump water heater is how efficiently it operates, as described above. This is the main reason many homeowners throughout Winnetka and beyond choose these systems for their homes. It takes very little energy to move heat, and therefore saves you money on energy costs.

Heat pump water heaters are affordable, efficient, effective, and long-lasting. And while any large home comfort appliance will eventually need repairs of some kind, they’re also extremely durable. To get the most out of your water heater, you’d do well to consider the heat pump system.

Turn to Our Team for Your Heat Pump Water Heater Services

The best way to fend off the biggest and costliest of repair needs for any appliance in your home is with routine maintenance. Your heat pump water heater is no exception.

All storage-tank style water heaters have a component in them called an anode rod. This is what absorbs rust and corrosion so the inside of your tank doesn’t have to. The anode rod needs to be replaced every 3-5 years or so.

Scaling from hard water is another problem that can afflict your heat pump water heater, but this is something our team checks on during your maintenance session. Of course, if you do need repairs in between maintenance appointments, we can handle that too. In fact, we provide 24/7 repairs since we know that no emergency happens at a convenient time!
