Heat Pump Water Heaters in Clovis, NM

Once upon a time, there was only one option for residential hot water: a heater that stored a supply of water in a large tank kept under constant heat from gas jets or electrical heating elements. However, the science of water heaters has advanced over the years, and now you have more choices when you’re looking for a water heater to install in your home. There are tankless models, which provide heat directly to the water as it is needed. And there’s also the heat pump water heater, which uses the technology of air conditioning systems to bring heat into a water heater tank.

There are number of reasons to place a heat pump water on your list of possible installations. To find out more about these systems, call Mark Carpenter Plumbing.

How Does a Heat Pump Water Heater Work?

A heat pump water heater is a combination of a storage water heater with a heat pump. Heat pumps are usually found as heating/cooling devices for homes: they use the circulation of refrigerant to move heat from the air in one place and release it in another. In the case of a water heater, the heat pump’s evaporator coil draws in heat from the air around the heat pump. A condenser coil then releases this heat into the water tank, raising the temperature of the water. The system runs off electricity, but doesn’t use it to directly heat the water, as with a standard electrical heat pump.

Reasons to Consider Installation of a Heat Pump Water Heater

The main reason to consider a heat pump water heater for your home is that it’s a highly energy–efficient device. If you house doesn’t have access to a gas line for a water heater, going with a heat pump model is usually a more cost–effective solution than an electric water heater. The heat pump components only use electricity to move heat from one place to another, rather than using electrical resistance to create heat. This consumes far less electricity, and this makes heat pump water heaters more economical systems.
