READING, MA — As part of its Energy Star Appliance Rebate Program, RMLD offers residential customers a rebate of $500 on the purchase of an Electric Heat Pump Water Heater.
An electric heat pump water heater works by pulling heat from the surrounding air to heat the water, and is two to three times more efficient than traditional electric water heaters that generate heat using electrical resistance. Because these devices work by pulling heat from the surrounding air, they work best when housed in a space with existing heat, such as a furnace room.
Electric heat pump water heaters are also available in hybrid models that contain traditional electrical resistance heating which can be used during periods of high demand to ensure there is a sufficient supply of hot water.
