Rheem Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater

Rheem hybrid heat pump water heaters work much like a refrigerator in reverse. The heat pump extracts the heat from warm air, intensifies the heat with a compressor, delivers the heat to the water, and exhausts the cooler air. Because it uses the warm ambient air temperature to do most of the work, it is a very efficient way to heat water.

Available in 50, 65 or 80 gallons.

FAQ

  • How can a heat pump water heater be efficient, isn’t it an electric water heater?

    Yes, it is powered by electricity, but it’s very different from an electric tank water heater. The tank water heater has an electric heating element that actually heats the water, so electricity both powers the unit and heats the water. The heat pump water heater uses electricity to power the unit, but the outside air as the primary fuel for actually heating the water, and you can’t beat free air as a fuel source.

    Just as the air source heat pump is an amazingly efficient source of heating and cooling, the hybrid heat pump water heater is a great source of efficient hot water. The energy efficiency of heat pump water heaters are well known, and most Seattle area electric utilities will provide you with a hefty rebate for installing one vs a standard tank electric water heater.
