What is a Hybrid Water Heater?
There are at least two different types of water heaters that fall under the term "hybrid." The first combines the power and storage of the conventional tank water heater with the efficiency of a tankless system. This system utilizes a high–efficiency heat–exchanger to heat your water on–demand, but it also contains a small reservoir of pre–heated water so that there is no delay in delivering hot water to your fixture. This system makes a great choice for numerous homeowners in our area looking to cut down on their hot water related expenses.
Perhaps more common than the system above is the hybrid heat pump water heater. This system combines a conventional tank system with the common HVAC technology. A standard air–source heat pump heats and cools the home by utilizing refrigerant to transfer thermal energy from one place to another. The hybrid water heater adopts this technology and uses the ambient air surrounding the tank to heat your water supply. It also has a backup mode for those especially cold days when operating in heat pump mode would not be as efficient.
Is Professional Hybrid Water Heater Installation Necessary?
Definitely. As with any other type of water heater installation, your new hybrid system needs to be chosen carefully so that its hot water capacity matches what your household uses on a daily basis. We will work with you to calculate an estimated hot water usage and then find a system that matches your needs exactly. Moreover, you need to make certain that your new hot water system is integrated carefully into your plumbing.
