Each year, thousands of Mainers buy hot water heaters, replacing old worn out models. Before you make a change, consider buying a heat pump hot water heater – ENERGY STAR reports that these high-efficiency units can save a four-person household more than $3,000 over ten years, compared to electric, tank-style hot water heaters.
Few people are familiar with a new technology commonly called a “hybrid hot water heater”. These water heaters utilize heat pump technology for optimal energy efficiency, yet also have electric heating elements to satisfy demand when necessary. Other benefits include warranties of 10+ years, and the ability to dehumidify they space they are in.
If a hot water heater is more than 10 years old, NOW is the time to replace it with one of these units and take advantage of a $750 Rebate being offered by Efficiency Maine. Heat pump water heaters can save more than $3,000 over the life of the unit, compared to tank-style water heaters, so don’t wait for yours to break – replace it now to begin to save and get this healthy rebate toward your cost!
