Heat Pump Water Heaters

Most people don’t think about their water heater until they have no hot water or a giant puddle from a leaky tank. Then they have to think fast: repair or replace.

We suggest thinking about your water heater’s role in your energy bill. Switching to a heat pump water heater can cut your water heating energy costs by up to 60%. Heat pump water heaters are twice as efficient as standard electric water heaters. Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from the air and transfer it, at a higher temperature, into the tank to heat the water.

Our Heat Pump Water Heater Program provides rebates and quality assurance to PUD customers who install qualified models.
