All Things Plumbing & HVAC: The Orange Coast Plumbing Blog

Need to know what’s an emergency and which problems can wait? Which problems you can solve DIY? The Orange Coast Plumbing blog helps you understand common plumbing, heating,  and air conditioning issues.

A heat pump water heater transfers heat from the ambient air into your water tank instead of burning natural gas or electricity. An HPWH can be up to three times more energy efficient than traditional electric water heaters. It’s much quieter than conventional models; if you’ve ever been disturbed by the sound of your old unit at work, this can be a godsend.

So how much money can you save with an HPWH unit? According to the US Department of Energy, you might expect yearly savings of up to $330 and energy savings of up to 60%.
