How Does a Heat Pump Work
Heat pump hot water systems operate on a principle like that of a refrigerator but in reverse. Instead of expelling heat, they extract it from the surrounding air or ground and transfer it to the water. This makes them highly efficient, as they don’t generate heat directly.
One of the primary benefits of heat pump hot water systems is their high efficiency ratings. They can produce up to three times more energy than they consume, making them an eco-friendly choice. This means lower energy bills and reduced carbon emissions.
Due to their higher efficiency and reliance on ambient heat sources, heat pump hot water systems have a lower environmental impact compared to traditional electric water heaters, which rely on electricity generated from fossil fuels.
