Heat pump water heaters use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly, like a refrigerator running in reverse. While a refrigerator pulls heat from inside a box and dumps it into the surrounding room, a heat pump water heater pulls heat from the surrounding air and transfers it – at a higher temperature – into the tank to heat the water. The best locations for a heat pump water heater are in a basement or garage, where the unit will not be drawing heat out of a living space. Learn more about heat pump water heaters.
