Water heaters are often one of the most overlooked energy hogs in our homes. Traditional water heaters will continually heat your water regardless of whether you’re using it or not. On average, they consume 5,000 kwh of energy per year, which is about 2 months’ worth of electricity consumption – just for hot water!
This is why we recommend hybrid water heaters. Hybrid water heaters (or heat pump water heaters) are a mix between traditional water heaters and tankless water heaters. They allow for variable settings to save up to 70% off of this portion of your energy use. Even better, switching to a hybrid water heater can reduce your solar production requirements by thousands of dollars!
Super Solar is proud to offer professional hybrid water heater installation to the Tampa Bay area as part of our whole home efficiency solutions. Proper water heater installation relies on many factors, like climate, building code, safety issues and more. As a local Rheem Pro Partner, we not only provide excellent products, but our certified professionals will be sure to meet the specific standards set by the Department of Energy.
