What is a Hybrid Water Heater?
For many years, homeowners were limited to two water heater options – tankless and tank-type. These two types of waters heaters were either electric or gas.
Now a third option, the electric hybrid water heater, is available. The electric hybrid is 3.5 times more efficient and is just as reliable as the standard tankless or tank-type water heaters, and they require fewer modifications to install than their tankless counterparts!

Is a Hybrid Water Heater Right for My Home?
Hybrid water heaters are a unique system when compared to other options out there on the market. The performance and efficiency of these systems depends largely on the conditions where they are being used. They work by transferring surrounding air to the system which produces an exhaust. They also require occasional filter cleanings. Here are some considerations to see if it’s right for you?
- Do you have a place in your home to install where cooling and noise won’t be a problem?
- Do you have a space in your home that offers 1,000 cubic feet of open surrounding air?
- Do you have a tall enough space to accommodate the unit?
- Do you live in a locale where the weather does not regularly drop below freezing?
- Do you live in a locale that stays between 40-90 degrees year round?
