Heat Pump Water Heaters In Santa Rosa

A heat pump water heater works like a refrigerator in reverse. Instead of using a compressor to pull heat from inside the refrigerator and transferring it to the surrounding room, a heat pump uses the compressor to take heat from the surrounding air and transfers it inside a storage tank, where your water is heated. It is a type of electric water heater.

Why Are We Moving Towards Electric Appliances?

Fossil fuel reserves in the world will be used up in 40 years. If we use creative (and more destructive) practices to extract those reserves we could extend this period to 52 years. Forty or 50 years is faster than the blink of an eye in the history of our planet. Fossil fuels will have to be replaced with renewable and mixed sources of energy. We will receive this energy in the form of electricity. Fossil fuels add to greenhouse gases and are a contributor to Global Warming. Electric appliances move us towards a lower carbon footprint.

How Much Energy Does My Water Heater Use?

Your water heater is one of the more robust consumers of energy among your home appliances. In the average home, the hot water heater is responsible for about 17 percent of the total energy use.

Gas vs. Electric on Operating Costs

Since Natural Gas prices are less than Electricity prices, generally speaking a gas water heater costs less per month to operate than an electric water heater. Heat pump water heaters are three and a half times more efficient than a standard electric water heater. If we use a 50-gallon gas water heater as our standard we can compare operating costs.

  • 50-gallon heat pump water heater costs the same or less to operate than a 50-gallon natural gas water heater
  • 50-gallon standard electric water heater costs three times more to operate than a 50-gallon natural gas water heater
  • 50-gallon standard electric water heater costs three and a half times more to operate than a 50-gallon heat pump water heater
  • 50-gallon propane gas water heater costs three and a half times more to operate than a 50-gallon heat pump water heater.

Heat Pump Water Heaters are Not for Everyone

Not everyone drives a hybrid or electric car. Logically not everyone will initially want a heat pump ecofriendly water heater.

They are just like a refrigerator. They make noise. We usually locate them in garages and have never had a noise complaint. I would not sleep next to my refrigerator, and I would not want to sleep close to a heat pump water heater (they can be programmed not to run during sleeping hours).

They are storage water heaters. Some people prefer instant hot water from a tankless water heater. Tankless can be exterior mounted. HPWH’s have to be indoors or in a structure.
