How Do They Work?
Heat pump water heaters are also call hybrid water heaters, because they often work in conjunction with small gas or electric water heaters. They pull heat from the air around your home, then use it to warm the water in the tank. Because the heat from the air is an infinitely renewable resource, it costs much less to generate than heat from a gas or electric source.
Heat pumps can’t provide enough hot water heater to meet the needs of most St. Louis and surrounding areas homes, which is why they work as part of a hybrid gas water heater or hybrid electric water heater in most cases. Even so, the savings can be considerable, and when you factor in the amount of hot water your household needs to run on a daily basis, you can see the benefit.
Every Home Is Different
Hybrid water heaters come in different models and styles, which can be a huge boon in determining the one that works best for you. Hybrid electric water heaters tend to work best in vacation homes in the St. Louis, MO area, or homes that don’t have access to municipal gas lines. Hybrid gas water heaters tend to cost less (natural gas is cheaper than electricity), and work better in homes that have access to natural gas.
