The Hybrid Electric water heater utilizes heat pump technology to provide a more efficient way to heat water with electricity.
- Heat from the surrounding air is pulled into the heat pump through a fan at the top
- The heat is absorbed by the refrigerant in the heat pump's evaporator coil
- The temperature of the refrigerant is increased as it is pumped by a compressor
- Hot refrigerant is passed through the copper condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water
