Enough Free energy to drive 10,000 miles
Switching to a heat pump water heater saves enough energy every year to power an electric vehicle over 10,000 miles, read on to see how this is possible.
A standard electric water heater uses 3493 kWh(kilowatt hours) per year.
A heat pump water heater uses 866 kWh per year.
That's a savings of 2627 kWh per year
A Tesla Model 3 Long Range AWD uses .25 kWh per mile
2627 ÷ .25 = 10,508 miles
A Chevy Bolt EV uses .28 kWh per mile
2627 ÷ .28 = 9382 miles
10,000 miles of free driving just by switching your water heater and your car.
Heat pump water heaters and electric vehicles are eligible for incentives that make switching even more affordable.
