Heat pump (hybrid) water heaters
Heat pump water heaters are revolutionizing the way we heat water. Utilizing super-efficient
technology, they use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of
generating heat directly. Therefore, they can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional
electric resistance water heaters.
