The next generation of efficient water heaters has arrived, and you stand to benefit. Using advanced technology, they harness the warmth already present in a household’s ambient air. This allows the pump to produce hot water while consuming around half the electricity used by conventional models.
Your cooperative can help with your investment.
HPWHs are the first electric water heaters to earn the ENERGY STAR® rating. They achieve their outstanding efficiency by using electricity to move heat, not generate it. Think of the process as operating like a reverse refrigerator.
By harnessing the warmth already present in a household’s ambient air and using it to heat water, these units can add a savings of up to $300 a year.
While HPWHs are capable of producing enough hot water for the entire family, built-in electric resistance elements automatically contribute to heating in case the surrounding air becomes too cold, or if you need extra hot water.
It’s extra insurance that you’ll have all the hot water you need, whenever you need it.
As an added benefit, HPWHs give off cool exhaust air, which can assist in home cooling and dehumidification. Or, this air could be directed outdoors through ductwork.
And they operate without combustible elements, offering increased safety compared to gas water heaters. For even more peace of mind, you can rest assured in your investment, thanks to a lifetime warranty.
Qualified professionals can get your pump hooked up quickly, and your home won’t be turned upside down during the process.

Liquid refrigerant is vaporized by the evaporator.
A fan moves heat from the surrounding air, which is absorbed by the refrigerant before traveling to the compressor, which increases its pressure and temperature. This also serves as a dehumidifier.
The vaporized refrigerant runs through the condenser coil inside the storage tank, transferring its collected heat to the water inside.
Heat loss is minimized by professional-grade insulation.
Heating elements use electricity to contribute to water heating only when necessary, to ensure you always have enough hot water.
