At Sierra Pacific Home & Comfort, Inc., we know you have many options when it comes to choosing how to heat the water in your home. As an appliance you rely on heavily on a daily and even hourly basis, it makes sense that you want the right water heater, one which fits your living space as well as your budget.
One of the choices that more and more residents throughout Sacramento, CA are making in this regard is to have a heat pump water heater installed—a device which can offer you significant energy savings. To learn more about these systems and to schedule your installation, contact our team: Sierra Pacific, The Guys In The Big Red Trucks.
How Does a Heat Pump Water Heater Work?
Heat pump water heaters use thermal energy from the air, in order to heat the water within their tanks. Traditional storage tank water heaters, in contrast, raise the temperature of the water within their tanks by either burning natural gas or using electrical resistance from heating elements in the tanks. The heat pump system transfers heat form one area to another, the same way that an air conditioner moves heat from inside a home and exhausts it outside.
There are many advantages to installing and using a system like this. First off, it’s typically more cost–effective than using a standard electric or natural gas water heater, since the electricity is only used to operate components that move heat, not generate it. This type of water heater is also a safe alternative to using natural gas without suffering from the energy costs that come with electric–powered water heaters.
Heat Pump Water Heaters in Sacramento, CA
If you live in Sacramento or any of the surrounding communities, then you get even more of a benefit from having a heat pump water heater installed. The Sacramento Municipal Utility District (SMUD) heavily endorses the use of these systems, mostly because they consume so much less energy in order to get the same job done as traditional water heaters.
Heat pump water heaters don’t use fuel to heat up the water, and use about a third less electricity than the traditional electric water heater, resulting in a system that’s two to three times more energy efficient. This cuts down your energy costs alone, but as an additional benefit, you can typically expect to find rebate offers available on the SMUD website.
