Heat pumps don’t rely on combustion to work. Instead, they use electricity and refrigerants to move heat from one area to another; making them more efficient and safer than their gas counterparts. Today’s heat pumps are typically over 100 percent efficient.
Energy policy conversation in California includes replacing gas water heaters with heat pump water heaters and replacing gas furnaces with heat pumps for space heating. They’re a perfect solution in regions with small heating loads like most of California. Heat pumps are poised to be the heating solution for buildings and are front and center in efforts to reduce GHG emissions. If you’d like to contribute to the state’s initiative and help lower GHGs, SDG&E offers a $250 instant rebate for electric heat pump water heaters. Get long-term energy savings today.
