An energy efficient water heater is important because heating water for your home is second only to heating and cooling your home when it comes to your energy dollars.
In the past, electric water heaters have not generally been an energy efficient hot water heating system… nor have they been environmentally friendly. But now there is a brand new integrated air-source heat pump water heater from Rheem, called the HP-50, which offers more than twice the energy efficiency of a standard electric storage water heater. The energy efficient design will help a family reduce its carbon footprint by nearly two tons every year!
This energy efficient hot water heater is a 50 gallon tank, but it’s only 21 inches in diameter – a great, slim design that is ideal for both new homes and drop-in replacement of your existing water heater. The Rheem HP-50 is Energy Star qualified and… the best part… this energy efficient hot water heater qualifies for a federal energy tax credit… as well as many local rebates and incentives. If you currently have a gas water heater – and have 240 volt access nearby – you can even replace your gas water heater with this more energy efficient hot water heater.
Another great feature, a touch pad control panel that gives you complete temperature control. It’s important to dial down the temperature setting on your hot water heater to avoid a scald risk. Besides allowing an easier way to dial up or down the water temperature to suit your needs, the Rheem HP-50 control panel has several settings to help you save energy – including a vacation setting.
The Rheem HP-50 is a very energy efficient water heater. It’s cheaper to run than an electric OR gas water heater. And its energy star rating allows it to qualify for a federal tax credit… and possibly even local credits through your state or utility company.
