Heat Pump Hot Water Systems
What is a Heat Pump Hot Water System?
As the name implies, a heat pump water system is an electrical device that extracts heat from one place and transfers it to another, generally from its surroundings, to heat water rather than using an electric element to heat the water.
It is said to be more energy-efficient than other hot water systems.
