How Hybrid Heat Pump Water Heaters Work
Hybrid heat-pump technology with traditional electric elements use a fraction of the energy compared to traditional products. The integrated compressor and evaporator use a fan to draw in ambient heat from surrounding air to heat refrigerant. Then the heated refrigerant runs through coils that wrap the tank all the way to the bottom, transferring heat into the water tank.
This innovative process creates the same amount of hot water as a traditional electric water heater, while reducing heating expenses by up to 67%. They also throw off cool air to the surrounding area. This can further lower energy costs by reducing the heat when installed in a garage.
