HOW DO HYBRID ELECTRIC HEAT PUMP WATER HEATER WORKS?

O. Smith line of hybrid heat pumps provide up to a 3.45 Uniform Energy Factor (UEF) rating, which conserves energy and is ENERGY STAR® certified.
A fan at the top of the hybrid electric heat pump tank water heater pulls air from the surrounding space through an evaporator. Refrigerant in the evaporator absorbs heat from the air. The refrigerant runs through a compressor, which raises the temperature and pressure. Finally, the heated refrigerant is passed through the condenser coil around the tank and transfers the heat to the water. So, rather than using only the electricity in your home to heat the water, A. O. Smith hybrid heat pump water heaters utilize heat within your home to heat the water in your tank.
