Hybrid water heaters (also called heat pump water heaters) last 50% longer than conventional electric water heaters and save up to 60% on your costs to heat water. Many models have better controls and can be Wi-Fi enabled.

Placing a hybrid water heater in spaces that need cooling, such as rooms for aging wine, will cool and dehumidify the surrounding space without any additional energy.
