What is a Heat Pump Water Heater?
A ‘heat pump’ is a device that moves heat from one place to another; it works much like an air conditioner or a refrigerator. While a refrigerator moves heat from your fridge to your kitchen, a heat pump water heater (HPWH) moves heat from your home into the hot water tank. Most HPWHs include an integrated hot water tank and a ‘hybrid’ mode (i.e. they can also run as standard electric water heaters if necessary).
