Heat Pump Water Heaters
Why Installing a Heat Pump Water Heater Makes Sense
Hot water can be a costly proposition.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), the average household spends 14 to 18 percent of their monthly utility bill on water heating. A heat pump water heater can slash those costs significantly. On average, the typical Tier 3 heat pump water heater is 3+ times more efficient than a standard electric water resistance heater.
Electric resistance and natural gas water heaters are the most common for residential and commercial use in our market.
A heat pump water heater does not generate heat. Instead, it is an electrically powered alternative that uses refrigerant to remove heat from the air outside the unit and release it into the water tank. It transfers heat rather than creates it. Doing so requires far less electrical power (about one-third of the power) to move heat than to generate it directly.
There are a couple of different types of heat pump water heaters available. The most common type has an integral heat pump unit that is attached directly to the top of the water heater storage tank. There is also a unit available that operates using a separate outside heat pump unit with a connected storage tank in the home. Both have their pros and cons and our comfort advisors can help provide a solution that is best for you.
In addition, almost every utility in our market is offering a $500 rebate just for installing a new heat pump water heater making this upgrade even more affordable.

Advantages of a Heat Pump Water Heater
Our relatively mild winters here in Tacoma, Seattle, and the Greater Puget Sound Region make heat pump water heaters a practical choice for heating water in your home.
A well-maintained heat pump water heater will provide quality service for 10 to 15 years. And since they draw thermal energy from the air, these systems are significantly more efficient than conventional gas-burning water heaters and electric resistance water heaters that constantly run to generate heat.
An ENERGY STAR® certified heat pump water heater, for example, can save an average household about $350 in electric bills each year compared to an electric standard water heater. That’s extra money in your pocket.
They’re also environmentally friendly—no greenhouse gas emissions or the risk of a gas leak. That means less impact on the power grid.

Protecting the environment is an essential part of our business at Resicon LLC. We want to spread the word about how a carbon dioxide heat pump water heater like Sanden’s CO2 water heater benefits both you and the environment.
Using carbon dioxide (CO2) refrigerant is a new technology in North America that offers superior energy efficiency for water heating compared to hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) refrigerant systems. Our team of experts strives to bring you the highest-quality and newest-technology systems for your home’s or business’s comfort.
With these newer technologies, you can also expect improved energy efficiency and energy savings.
The SANCO2 unit from Sanden is a climate-friendly, more efficient, and less costly system to operate compared to traditional electric water heaters. The SANCO2 does not even need to use an electric backup system to deal with drops in outdoor temperatures even well below zero degrees Fahrenheit.
Only a few contractors in the Tacoma, Seattle, and the Greater Puget Sound Region have experience installing SANCO2 carbon-dioxide-based water heaters. We have installed dozens.
