Emerson Climate Technologies supports water heater manufacturers around the world by providing specifically-designed compressors for heating water and refrigerant controls for commercial applications.
Hot water is an everyday need for modern living. Traditionally, water is heated by burning fossil fuels or using electric heaters. These traditional methods of water heating operate at an energy efficiency of less than 1 – meaning that the heating provided is less than electrical energy or fuel consumed.
Heat Pump Water Heating (HPWH) is a more efficient solution for heating water. It utilizes naturally available heat from water, ground and even winter air and applies a vapor compression refrigerant cycle, consuming nearly one quarter of the electrical energy required for traditional water heating. At 75% reduced energy consumption, this contributes to cleaner air.
