Heat Pump Water Heaters in Butler County, PA

When it comes to water heaters, natural gas proves to be an inexpensive and effective fuel source. Yet, not every home in Butler County has access to natural gas. Their only option is to resort to electric water heaters, which are more expensive to run simply because the cost of electricity is higher. Between a gas water heater and an electric water heater, are there any other options for reliable and inexpensive heating?

There is, and it's called the heat pump water heater. These systems save hundreds of dollars on heating expenses by using a method of heating that doesn’t involve combustion or electrical resistance. Our licensed master plumbers here at Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. have decades of combined experience in installing water heaters. Our goal is to only install systems that keep your home safe, healthy, comfortable, and energy efficient, and heat pump water heaters are one of them.

What’s So Special About Heat Pump Water Heaters?

As their name suggests, these systems are part heat pump. You may be familiar with heat pumps in the realm of heating. These systems transfer warmth from the air outside and send it into the home. The same process can be used to heat your water, too.

Since this process does not require combustion or electrical resistance to create heat, it’s actually far less energy intensive. It simply uses warmth that’s already in the air rather than creating heat out of nothing. Heat pumps severely cut down on the costs associated with electric fuel sources, and they’re good enough to rival natural gas systems. Heat pump water heaters have earned their place among the most efficient water heaters on the market.

How Often Do They Need Maintenance?

Heat pump water heaters will perform efficiently and without much complaint for many years. Even so, we recommend you have yours scheduled for annual routine maintenance along with the rest of your plumbing system.

In the event that the water heater has issues outside of maintenance periods, you’ll have Kennihan Plumbing & Heating, Inc. at your side to come make the repairs. Watch out for strange noises or gradual decreases in the water heater’s ability to maintain warm temperatures. When that happens, let us know immediately. We want your water heater to live up to its life expectancy and to perform efficiently throughout that time.
