How do heat pump water heaters work?

Heat pump water heaters are similar to your fridge but a hot water heat pump works in reverse. Hot Water heat Pumps use electricity to move heat from one place to another, instead of generating heat directly. To heat water, the evaporator absorbs whatever heat energy is available from the air and vaporizes the refrigerant.

This vapor is then compressed raising its pressure and temperature. The now hot vapor passes through pipes permanently bonded to the outside of the water tank, and as the refrigerant vapor condenses back to a liquid, the heat is transferred to the stored water.
