Rheem Water Heater introduced an air-source HP-50 Heat Pump Water Heater that offers an Energy Factor (EF) of 2.0, or more than twice the energy efficiency of a standard electric storage water heater. Rheem says that the energy-saving design will help a family reduce its carbon footprint by nearly two tons annually. In addition, the new water heater qualifies for a federal tax credit as well as many state and utility rebates and incentives.

The water heater measures only 21 inches in diameter and 75.5 inches tall, making installation easier in spaces with restricted access — including attics and basement mechanical rooms.

Instead of heating stored water directly with a conventional electric element — or with a burner, as in the case of a gas unit — a heat pump water heater transfers available heat from the ambient air, intensifies the heat and transfers the heat into the water, a far more cost- and energy-efficient process.
