How do hybrid electric heat pump tank water heaters work?

Hybrid electric heat pump tank water heaters are built to be the most efficient tank water heater on the market. Engineered to utilize your home’s electricity along with heat pump technology, the A. O. Smith line of hybrid heat pumps provide up to a 3.45 Uniform Energy Factor (UEF) rating, which conserves energy and is ENERGY STAR® qualified.

A fan at the top of the hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater pulls air from the surrounding space through an evaporator. Refrigerant in the evaporator absorbs heat from the air. The refrigerant runs through a compressor, which raises the temperature and pressure. Finally, the heated refrigerant is passed through the condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water. So, rather than using only the electricity in your home to heat the water, A. O. Smith hybrid heat pump water heaters utilize heat within your home to heat the water in your tank.

With A. O. Smith hybrid electric heat pump technology, you can save energy costs within your home. The heat pump uses heat available in your home to minimize operating costs, which can save you hundreds of dollars annually compared to a standard tank electric water heater.

A. O. Smith hybrid electric heat pump water heaters are built with an innovative anode to make sure your water can continue heating within your home quickly and efficiently. A. O. Smith also offers models with 6- to 10-year limited warranty options.

Choosing a hybrid heat pump water heater for your home will help save money throughout the water heater’s life and follows the same installation process as a standard electric water heater. The initial purchase cost of a hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater is usually higher, which can change the cost of installation depending on your plumbing contractor. However, many utility companies around the United States provide rebates to assist in the initial upfront costs of the electric heat pump. Use A. O. Smith’s Rebate Finder to search for rebates in your area.

A. O. Smith offers three different sizes of hybrid electric heat pump tank water heaters to meet your home’s needs—50, 66 and 80 gallons. When choosing the proper water heater, you should consult your local plumbing contractor to provide the correct size and model for your home. Consult A. O. Smith’s online XPERT Product Selector.

Due to the hybrid electric heat pump technology transferring heat from the air in your home into the water heater, a hybrid heat pump water heater operates best when installed in a large space like a basement or garage. For closets or other smaller spaces, A. O. Smith offers a ducting kit to allow the heat pump to use air from an adjacent room. You should consult your local plumbing contractor to see if a hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater is the right fit for your home.
