How Do Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Tank Water Heaters Work?

As the most efficient tank water heater available, hybrid heat pump water heaters are designed to use your home's electricity alongside heat pump technology. State's hybrid heat pumps offer Uniform Energy Factor (UEF) ratings up to 3.45, which means they are ENERGY STAR® Certified.
At the top of the hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater unit, a fan draws in air from the surrounding space through an evaporator. After absorbing heat from the air, refrigerant in the evaporator runs through a compressor to raise temperature and pressure. The heated refrigerant goes through the condenser coil around the tank, transferring heat to the water. Instead of relying on electricity or gas to heat the water directly, State hybrid heat pump water heaters use the heat already available within your home to heat your water.

Innovative State hybrid electric heat pump technology does contribute to savings on energy costs. To lower operating costs, the heat pump draws on heat already available in your home, which can lead to hundreds of dollars of annual savings in comparison to a traditional electric tank water heater.

State offers models with 6- to 10-year limited warranty options. Although the lifespan of a heater varies depending on proper maintenance, water quality and use patterns, State heaters are frequently in service beyond the warranty period when properly installed and maintained in areas with good water quality.

A hybrid electric heat pump water heater requires the same installation process as a standard electric water heater. While the initial cost of this type of water heater is typically higher and affects installation costs in total, it can help you conserve energy and save money in the long run. Additionally, utility companies tend to provide rebates to help with the upfront costs.

A range of sizes is available to meet your needs. State's three options for hybrid electric heat pump water heaters are 50, 66, and 80 gallons. Consult your local plumbing contractor to decide on the right size and model for your daily needs. You may also visit State's online XPERT Product Selector and answer a few questions to get started.

State's heat pump technology transfers heat from the air in your home into the water within your water heater. If you live in moderate climates and have a basement, garage or other large spaces, a hybrid heat pump water heater operates very well. State also offers a ducting kit for smaller spaces like closets to allow the heat pump to use air from an adjacent room. Consult your local plumbing contractor to find out if a hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater is the right fit for your home's needs.
