Save energy in your home by updating your water heating appliances.

Heat Pump Water Heater

Typically Homeowners who have a Heat Pump use them to Heat or Cool their home. However a Heat Pump can also be used to heat a water heater.

Unlike the Conventional Water Heaters Heat Pump Water Heaters use only one source to heat the water. They use electricity which moves the heat from one place to another instead of in one place. This alone makes them up to three times more efficient then your conventional water heater system.

Conventional Storage Water Heaters

Conventional Storage Water Heaters are the most popular type of water heater.

A Single Family Conventional Water Heater stores between 20 to 80 gallons of hot water. The way they work is the Hot water is released from the top of the water heater when you turn on your water tap. The water heater fills up from the bottom everytime the water heater gets low to ensure that there is always water stored in the tank for future use.

Solar Water Heater

Solar water heating systems have both a tank as well as solar collectors. They can be a very effective way to heat the water in your home, since they use the sun to heat the water, which is essentially free. In a two tank solar water heater system the water is preheated before it enters into the conventional storage thank. In a one tank system there is a backup heater and it's combined with solar energy storage in one tank.

There are three types of collectors in a solar water heater.
