Applying the latest heat pump technology to domestic water heating leads to an opportunity for considerable savings. A combination heat pump/water heater uses a built in comprerssor and and evaporator coupled with a fan to draw in environmental air, extracting the heat from it and using it to heat the water.
The resultant savings over standard electric water heaters can be as much as fifty percent here in Maine. Coupled with a $300 rebate through Efficiency Maine and a $300 federal tax incentive, the payback time could be less than 2 years.
We recomment the GE GeoSpring heater, because it is made in the USA and is locally available, and very well made.
