Heat Pump Water Heater Services in Chapel Hill & Durham, NC
A heat pump water heater uses a different means of warming your household water than the traditional methods. Heat pumps function like refrigerators only in reverse: using refrigerant to warm the water in the heater before distributing it to your home. It’s quite efficient, using much less energy than traditional water heaters and saving you a great deal of money in the process. But it also means that specific knowledge is needed to install, repair, and maintain them properly.
That’s where we come in. Our trained professionals know the specifics of heat pump water heaters. If you need a new system installed, we can make sure the job is done right! We can also help you out with all of your routine maintenance needs!

HOW DO HEAT PUMP WATER HEATERS WORK?
If you opened up the internal workings of your heat pump water heater, it wouldn’t look all that different from the system in your refrigerator. The main differences are that the process is in reverse. Refrigerators use refrigerant gas to pull heat from inside the fridge, then release hot air outside of the system to compensate. Heat pumps, on the other hand, pull heat in from the outside air and release it into your water tank. The system can be retrofitted with traditional water heaters in some cases, and our mild weather makes it an excellent fit for our climate regardless.
