Frequently Asked Questions
Water heaters that use electricity to transfer heat from one place to another are called electric hybrid water heaters or heat pump water heaters.
An electric hybrid water heater costs more than a normal one, but utility rebates, tax credits, and promotions can greatly reduce the purchase price. Furthermore, the unit usually pays for itself in about three years by significantly reducing household energy consumption, saving you money almost immediately.
Electric hybrid water heaters can be placed anywhere, from an unheated garage to a heated utility room. Space, sound, air temperature, and the size/height of the device are all factors to consider.
