What Makes a Heat Pump Water Heater Different?

Natural gas water heaters are the most common type in residential and commercial use in our market. Buildings and homes without natural gas or propane available typically use an electric water heater that heats the water in the tank with electric resistance heating elements. This is a highly inefficient and costly way to heat water. A heat pump water heater is an electrically powered alternative that uses refrigerant to remove heat from the air outside the unit and then release the heat into the water tank. It requires far less electrical power (about 1/3 the power) to move heat than to generate it directly.

The Benefits of a CO2 Heat Pump Water Heater

The heat pump water heater is also an option for buildings that have natural gas or propane water heaters. Gas burning systems place greenhouse gases (GHG) into the air, which are a major contributor to the growing issue of climate change. And, thanks to the latest available technology for heat pump water heaters that use carbon dioxide (CO2) for refrigerant, a heat pump water heater will outperform a gas or propane system.

The conventional refrigerant used in most electric heat pump water heaters is a hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) chemical blend like R410–A. But many commercial and industrial systems have switched to using natural refrigerants such as carbon dioxide. 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 doesn’t even need to use an electric back–up system to deal with drops in outdoor temperatures.
