Heat Pump Water Heater Rebates
Water heaters are typically the second highest source of energy use in your home behind heating and cooling systems. If you currently have a standard electric water heater, you can reduce your hot water costs by up to 60% by installing a heat pump water heater (HPWH). That means greater energy efficiency and big savings on your utility bill. HPWHs have similar tank sizes compared with standard electric water heaters and feature the same range of temperature adjustments.
To help you decide whether switching to a HPWH is right for your home, here is an easy-to-use interactive tool.
