If you have an aging electric water heater and you’ve been planning to replace it, you’re in for a very nice surprise, especially if you’re looking for a replacement system with at least 55 gallons of storage capacity.
Back in 2015, the design of electric water heaters of that size changed forever. In fact, and in the strictest sense, you can no longer purchase an electric water heater of 55 gallon or greater capacity. They’ve been replaced by electric heat pump water heaters, and for you, that means an expect savings of $350 per year in energy costs.
Heat pump (also known as electric hybrid heat pump water heaters use a small amount of electricity to move heat from the surrounding air to the water. And since it’s more efficient to move heat rather than generate it, the heat pump water heater can deliver hot water up to two and a half times as efficiently as a common electric resistance water heater. That’s where the savings come from.
With a heat pump water heater from Anthony’s Plumbing, Heating & Air, you’ll also enjoy quiet operation and a longer system lifespan – up to 20 years – than older, conventional electric water or gas water heaters.
