Heat Pump Water Heaters: The Cool Way To Get
Hot Water

Did you know water heaters are the second highest source of energy use in your home? Here’s another fact: You can save up to 50% on water heating energy costs — up to $3,500 over the lifetime of your equipment — by upgrading to an ENERGY STAR® certified heat pump water heater. And we can help you save even more with a residential rebate.

3 Easy Steps to get started


Make a plan for installation.

Selecting the location for your heat pump water heater is a little more complicated than your traditional water heater. Fortunately, ENERGY STAR created an easy survey to make sure you’re ready to install. Answer four simple questions to stay ahead of installation considerations.


Purchase an energy star certified heat pump water heater.

Check out ENERGY STAR’s product finder and purchase a recommended heat pump water heater from their list. Then they can connect you to an installer.
