Hot Water Heat Pumps
Most homeowners who own heat pumps use them to heat and cool their houses. But heat pumps can also be used to heat water-as a stand-alone water heating system, or as a combination of water heating and space conditioning systems.

You don't need solar panels, and the government provides generous rebates, so they are a particularly economical and renewable hot water supply method!
How does the heat pump water heater work?
Use energy from thin air! The air source electric heat pump absorbs and transfers heat from the air to heat the water. It works like a reverse refrigerator, transferring heat from the air to the water stored in the heater.
1. The refrigerator draws heat from the box and then discharges it to any room where it is.
2. The electric pump water heater absorbs heat from the surrounding air, and then pours it into the water tank at a higher temperature to heat the water.
3. Heat pump water heaters are sometimes called "hybrid" water heaters, because during periods of high hot water usage, 4. They can automatically switch to standard resistance heating. You can use the control panel of the device to set the water heater to various settings, including hybrid mode. If you don't want it to switch automatically, just set it to regular heat pump mode.
Many control panels have multiple settings and modes to maximize energy savings. If two children are showering in different bathrooms at the same time while running the dishwasher, you can switch them to "high demand" or "hybrid" mode to get enough hot water. Hybrid mode is the most energy-efficient mode in daily use.
