If you live in Waterbury, Bristol, Torrington, Litchfield, or the surrounding area you’re probably accustomed to the traditional tank water heater present in the vast majority of our homes. It’s a tried and true technology, but it’s not the only one out there. If you’re looking for something more efficient to heat your water, you might consider a heat pump water heater from the experts at Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC. We’ve installed a number of such systems over many years, and while it’s not for everyone, those in the right circumstances will find the benefits immeasurable.
Our heat pump water heater services include more than installation too: we can set up an annual or semi-annual maintenance session to keep your system in fighting shape, as well as offering 24–hour repair service for those times when things don’t go as planned. Call us today or contact us online to schedule your free estimate!
Heat pump water heaters operate by pulling heat from the nearby air, using a compressor system similar in some ways to a heat pump or air conditioner. It then uses that heat to warm the water in its tank. Unlike traditional water heaters, it doesn’t use its power to heat the water directly. Instead, it simply facilitates the transfer of heat from the air to the water. There are stand-alone heat pump water heaters available, but also systems that you can use to upgrade your existing water heater, preventing you from having to pay for a full-bore replacement. Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC can provide a number of options for you depending upon your precise needs.
In the first place, heat pump water heaters use a great deal less energy than traditional water heaters. That saves you big money on your monthly bills. It also reduces wear and tear on the system, lowering the chances of a repair bill in the future. Heat pump water heaters function best in environments with mild temperatures, but when used in conjunction with a household heating system it can "piggyback" on the warm air in your home to do its job. That kind of synergy improves the overall efficiency of your home, helping you get the most bang for your energy buck while ensuring that you still enjoy plenty of piping hot water in your pipes.
Pelletier Mechanical Services, LLC has the experience and know–how to help you select a heat pump water heater that’s right for your circumstances. We pride ourselves on individual attention and finding the perfect system for your home. We won’t start installation until you are perfectly satisfied with the choices and, you can be sure that the job will be done right.
