Air Source Heat Pump Water Heaters

Air source heat pump water heaters, as the name implies, are to transfer the energy from the air to the water through the refrigerant. Traditional electric water heaters and gas water heaters obtain the heat energy by consuming electricity or gas, while air source heat pumps (ASHPs) achieve the purpose of heating the water by absorbing the heat in the air. Under the condition of consuming the same amount of electric energy, they can absorb the heat energy that is equivalent to three times of the electricity to heat the water.

  • How to Install A Heat Pump Water Heater?

    Turn off the electricity to your electric heating system and the house's primary water supply.
    Then, attach a hose to your tank's bottom and route it to the outside. Remove the old water heater and dispose of it.
    Remove the pipes connecting to the water heater using the pipe cutters.
    Install your new heat pump system.
    Connect your latest heating system to the main supply line with pipes that are the same size and kind as the current water line.
    Now, install the vacuum valve at the top of your water heater to keep it from falling in on itself if the power goes out.
    Ensure the heat pump water heater has the pressure and temperature release valve that fits appropriately.
    You require an expansion tank or expansion valve in some systems.
    Restart the water and power.
  • How Much Noise Does A Heat Pump Water Heater Make?

    Note that heat pump water heaters may generate 40 to 80dB noise levels or even more. It's roughly as loud as a hairdryer, noisy low-end restaurant, or a vacuum sweeper, according to the decibel level of the noise charts. While the noise level may be problematic at the first time, make sure you place it somewhere where you don't hear it or a place where the noisy sound will not bother you.
  • How Efficient Is A Heat Pump Water Heater?

    Heat pump water heater systems have many modes and settings to help you save much more energy. They use seven times less energy when compared to the gas water heaters. And 3.5 times less energy than the electric heating system. Heat pumps are devices that transfer energy from one location to the other. They are highly efficient since they do not generate heat; instead, they move it from one place to another.
    Heat pump water heaters are not only highly efficient, but they also use electricity, resulting in a formula for more safe water heating. 
  • Should I Get a Heat Pump Water Heater?

    The heat pump collects heat from the air and transfers it to heat the water inside the tank. The heat pump runs on electricity, though the heating system is about three times more effective than a standard electric heating system. They help save money and energy and cut greenhouse gas emissions when utilized correctly. 
    Also, a traditional electric water heater has a life expectancy of between 8 to 12 years. As a result, it will need to be updated every 10 years or so. A heat pump water heater can last anywhere from 13 to 15 years making it an excellent investment because of its extended life expectancy and energy savings.
  • How Does A Heat Pump Water Heater Work?

    High-efficiency heat pump water heaters use 7 times less energy than gas water heaters and are 3.5 times less energy compared to electric water heaters. A heat pump water heater draws heat from the ambient air and transmits it — at a high temp — to heat the water in the storage tank, similar to how a refrigerator draws heat from within a box and delivers it into the air.
    Heat pumps need a coolant that evaporates at lower temperatures to operate. The gas temperature rises as it is compressed, making it warmer than the tank water. The heated gas goes through a condenser and transfers its heat to the water, reverting to a liquid.
  • What Is A Heat Pump Water Heater?

    Rather than generating heat directly, heat pump water heaters utilize energy to transport heat from one location to another. As a result, small heat pump water heaters can save two to three times as much energy as traditional electric resistance water heaters.
    To move the heat, heat pumps work like a refrigerator in reverse. On the other hand, a heat pump takes heat from the air around it, raises the temperature, and then deposits it in the tank to warm the water. The majority of households use heat pumps to heat or cool their houses. However, a heat pump heats water as well, either as a standalone system or as part of a combined water heating and air conditioning system.



  • How Does a Split Heat Pump Work?


    A split-system heat pump is a technology that transfers heat from one location to another using a network of pipes, vents, and other components. It functions similarly to a standard central heating system. Instead of a single boiler, the system transfers heat from the outside unit to the inside unit Read More

  • How Often Should A Heat Pump Cycle Turn On And Off?


    Heat pumps are known for their energy efficiency, but if the units cycle on and off too frequently, there might be some internal problems the increase energy consumption and cause the damage of heat pump components. This is a common problem of heat pumps, known as short cycling. When a heat pump short cycles, your unit cannot maintain the desired temperature in either heating or cooling mode, so it turns on and off constantly. Read More

  • How Long Does It Take to Heat Pool Water with a Heat Pump?


    The amount of time it takes to heat a swimming pool with a heat pump depends on a few factors. If it's a smaller swimming pool such as a spa pool, it takes around 45 and 60 minutes. But generally, it heats a pool after about 24 to 72 hours at 20-degrees Fahrenheit. However, it's a critical question Read More

  • Questions About Ductless Heat Pumps


    When purchasing your home, you want to be sure that you're getting the most reliable and efficient air conditioning system possible. Central AC systems can be a great option for many houses. But if your residence is an older model that doesn't have ductwork, installing these units may be quite costl Read More
