Water Heating

Smarter Water Heating

Electric Thermal Storage (ETS) Water Heaters draw electricity overnight and store hot water inside their Envirofoam®-insulated tank to help lower costs. Heat Pump Water Heaters (HPWHs) use electricity to move heat already present in a household’s ambient air instead of generating it.
