Heat Pump Water Heater Services in Westchester County, NY
Most of us are accustomed to the traditional tank water heater with its tall metal cylinder. It’s a simple system and a popular choice, which is why it remains the staple for most Westchester County households. But it’s not the only kind of water heater out there, and for homes with certain specific needs, an alternative system may be an excellent way to keep your water piping hot.
Consider, for example, a hybrid water heater, which facilitates a heat exchange with the nearby air to help warm your water. They’re a recent technology, which means they cost more to install than traditional water heaters, but the benefits you get in return can be tremendous. The experts at Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators have all of the information on both gas hybrid water heaters and electric hybrid water heaters, and can perform maintenance, installation, repair, and replacement services on them both. If that sounds like a good fit for your home, pick up the phone and call us today!
Hybrid Water Heaters Use Innovative Technology
The technology behind hybrid water heaters varies by make and model, but most of them obey the same principles. A heat pump pulls heat from the outside air, and then transfers it to a series of coils or pipes, which then heat the water in the tank. In periods where demand is particularly high (as it can sometimes get in Westchester County), the heat pump water heater can switch to a more direct fuel source, either as a hybrid electric water heater or a hybrid gas water heater. Either way, the system is much more efficient than standard water heaters, which brings with it several tangible benefits.
How Does That Help My Home?
Studies show that up to 17% of your entire household energy use can come from your water heater. A hybrid water heater can cut into that tremendously, since it uses far less fuel than other water heaters and instead employs the renewable energy of the sun and outside atmosphere. As a result, you can save a great deal on monthly costs by having one installed. A hybrid water heater also does wonders for the environment, since the fuel consumption and emissions in such a unit are much lower than in other units. Repairs are usually minor, though they require a service with experience in such systems, such as Yost & Campbell Heating, Cooling & Generators to conduct, and they often last longer than other heaters as well. For the right household, that can make a world of difference.
