What better way to efficiently heat the water you need than by utilizing heat that already exists with a heat pump water heater?
According to the EPA, water heating accounts for 18% of a home’s energy use, on average. Heat pump water heaters are two to three times more efficient than traditional gas water heaters, and by making the switch, you can reduce your home’s overall energy usage. The Clean Energy Connection provides homeowners with a list of verified contractors ready to perform your water heater replacement or installation.
Say Goodbye to Natural Gas Water Heating
Reducing our reliance on natural gas and other fossil fuels for residential energy is a large part of meeting California's decarbonization goals. By switching to a heat pump water heater, you are doing your part to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
There are several benefits of switching from natural gas to heat pump water heaters, including:
- More efficient operation
- Can run on renewable energy (either through residential solar installation or by purchasing clean energy from your utility provider)
- Has none of the safety concerns associated with combustion gas water heaters
Heat pump water heaters can also qualify for energy efficiency rebates. When you find a contractor through the Clean Energy Connection, they will help determine your eligibility for any available rebates offered by your local utility company, which can make upgrading more affordable.
