Hybrid Gas & Electric Water Heaters:
Hybrid Water Heaters use the most modern water heating technology to deliver huge energy savings.
It seems hard to believe but, even though Water Heaters are the second largest energy consumer in most homes (that's more than your refrigerator, dishwasher, clothes washer and dryer combined), Energy Star did not start regulating their efficiency until 2008. This action forced the industry to develop more energy efficient water heaters like the new hybrid systems.
With the increasing popularity of Hybrid Automobiles, you might be tempted to think that Hybrid Water Heaters use gas or electricity to charge some sort of battery, but the fact is that Hybrid Water Heaters combine the best of Tank and Tankless water heater technologies.
Conventional or "Tank" water heaters heat water from the bottom up, this means that a fair amount of heat is wasted. Tankless Water Heaters do not store water, so they continually provide hot water to all areas of your home. Hybrid Water Heaters use a variety of technologies to heat more efficiently and they incorporate a reservoir.
Hybrid Water Heaters are available in Gas and Electric. Gas models offer an endless supply of hot water, efficiency ratings of up to 98%, and a 15 year warranty. Hybrid Electric or "Heat Pump" Water Heaters come with a 10 year warranty and they are the only type of water heater capable of meeting the new DOE energy standards for water heaters above 55 gallons.
