According to Energy Star, heat pump water heaters are revolutionizing the way we heat water. These water heaters utilize newer technology and can cut water heating costs by more than half.* They use less energy and saving about $325 a year on utility bills,
* Based on DOE test procedure and comparison of a 50-gallon standard electric tank water heater using 4879 kWh per year vs. the GeoSpring Hybrid Water heater using 1830 kWh per year.
Water Heater System - electric heat pump
Combining this hybrid water heater with a solar PV system, delivers you and your family cleaner, healthier, softer and silky-smooth water. A unique feature of most models is the Vacation Mode, which will save you energy while you're away. This setting allows the system to drop the water heater temperature setpoint to 50°F to save energy, while also preventing the water from freezing. All you do is set the number days you will be away. The units automatically resets, and starts to heat your water one day before your return. So vacation away with all the money you save from this green upgrade!
The Department of Energy states this about a heat pump, hybrid water heater: "Heat pump (hybrid) water heater systems typically have higher initial costs than conventional storage water heaters. However, they have lower operating costs, which can offset their higher purchase and installation prices." ** And with the price of fuel rising each year, this might be the best solution for your home, especially if you are planning to install a solar PV system.
• 100% electric
• Free electricity for at least 20 years (after 6-8 year average payback)
• No more carbon monoxide poisoning issues - at all
• No more worries about the pilot going out
• Fight global warming at home with no CO2 emmissions
• Hedge against the rising price of fuel, and increasing utility and inflation rates
Solar PV panels capture the sun's free energy and sends electricity to the main electrical panel, just like the utility grid.
