Hybrid Water Heater in Chesapeake, VA by House Call Company

If you need a new water heater you may consider other options besides the traditional. Storage tank water heaters are fairly dependable, but tankless water heaters are on the rise due to their superior efficiency and small size. But one other option is often overlooked, despite high efficiency and performance levels: the hybrid water heater. The House Call Company team is happy to tell you more about this high-efficiency product and to provide you with superb services that will allow the system to last for many years, including professional maintenance, repairs, installation, or replacement.

What Is a Hybrid Electric Water Heater?

The most common hybrid water heaters work by using a heat pump as a source of heat, rather than a fuel source like natural gas or electric heating elements. Heat pumps use refrigerant to move heat from one area to another, and are commonly used for heating and air conditioning purposes. In a hybrid heat pump water heater, the heat pump uses refrigerant to absorb heat from the air around your home. The refrigerant then moves through a set of heating coils, which heat up the water. This process uses less energy than a system that generates heat, as moving heat is a more efficient process.

Another type of hybrid water heater combines the storage tank water heater with tankless technology. Tankless water heaters use less energy than storage tank heaters because they don’t have to keep water hot throughout the day. While heating water on demand is more efficient, it can take a while for the water to heat up completely, which means that you may waste a lot of water waiting for your shower or sink to get warm.

This type of hybrid water heater consists of a small reservoir of hot water. This remains hot at all times, but it uses a lot less energy to do so than a conventional system because the tank is so small. An on–demand tankless–type system is used in combination with this reservoir so that you have a consistent supply of hot water.
