Heat Pump Water Heaters
Water heating is one of the costliest sources of energy consumption for Vermont households, typically costing at least $400 annually.
Heat pump water heaters can cost half as much to operate as traditional electric resistance water heaters, and can save over $1,400 over the lifetime of the unit. Not only do they heat water, heat pump water heaters also air condition and dehumidify the space around them.
