Heat Pump Water Heaters

Heat Pump Water Heater Services in Cedar Grove, NJ

Water heaters come in all shapes and sizes, and here in Cedar Grove, NJ, we’ve seen them all. Most people are familiar with the classic tank model, which often uses gas-fed heat to warm the water in a huge tank. But that is not the only model out there. For our specific weather, we often recommend a heat pump water heater, which is a form of hybrid electric water heater and makes an efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to the traditional water heater. Instead of creating heat by burning fuel, it pulls heat from the surrounding atmosphere, which uses less energy and subsequently costs you less than a traditional electric water heater.

Naturally, you need the right company to install, maintain, repair and replace heat pump water heaters in your home. At MarGo Plumbing Heating Cooling Inc., we have considerable experience on that front, not only with regular heat pump water heaters, but with hybrid gas water heaters and hybrid electric water heaters as well. Contact us today to discuss your options, and let us show you what this exciting technology can do for you!

How Do They Work?

Heat pump water heaters utilize principles similar to air conditioning to heat your water. Tubes circulate a type of refrigerant through a condenser and evaporator array, pulling heat from the outside air and then depositing that high temperature into the water in the tank. You may see an issue with this notion: our summers in Cedar Grove, NJ provide plenty of hot air for the system to draw upon, but winters are seemingly too cold. This may lead you to believe that you need a hybrid gas water heater system instead, but this isn’t an option if you have no access to natural gas, or don’t wish to use natural gas. The good news is, modern heat pumps have reach a level of technology where they do not accumulate excess strain in drawing thermal energy from the air when temperatures drop too low. They are able to pull in enough heat from the air even in sub–freezing weather.

Why Should I Install Them?

Even with a hybrid model, heat pump water heaters make a lot of sense. They don’t consume fuel in the summer; they simply transfer the heat directly into the water. That means you won’t have to pay nearly as much for running it in the warmer months as you would a traditional tank model. That also means less wear and tear and a reduced chance of repairs, since burner arrays and their attendant safety features literally aren’t used for much of the year. Heat pump technology has advanced a great deal in recent years, which means that yours can run later in the year without having to rely on gas or electricity.
