The water heater is likely the most important appliance in your home. It makes it possible to clean your dishes properly, do your laundry, and heat the water to a comfortable temperature when bathing and showering.
But standard water heaters are also among the most inefficient appliances. They account for an average of 18 percent of your electricity costs, according to the Energy.gov website. And the older your water heater, the less energy efficient it is.
What is a hybrid hot water heater?
A conventional hot water heater includes a reservoir of hot water that’s ready for use when you open your tap. While these water heaters are inexpensive, they are also inefficient, causing standby heat loss since they are constantly heating the water in the tank.
A hybrid hot water heater, also known as a heat pump water heater, uses hot air to warm the water in the tank. But it can also be used in electric mode so that it operates as a standard water heater. You can even combine modes for those times of high demand.
Three reasons to install a hybrid hot water heater
- Energy efficiency. You’ll save hundreds of dollars a year in energy costs.
- Smart technology. Many hybrid hot water heaters are smart appliances, meaning they have Wi-Fi technology that allows you to manage and track your hot water usage from your mobile device.
- Even if you need hot water for more than one activity at the same time (showering, dishwashing), the hybrid hot water heater delivers an adequate supply.
Because of their energy efficiency, hybrid hot water heaters are also environmentally friendly.
