Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters

Lower your water heating bills and save on equipment costs.

A heat pump water heater can significantly reduce your monthly water heating costs. Additionally, residential customers of the Mass Save® Program Sponsors can receive a rebate of up to $600 if they have a licensed plumber install a qualified heat pump water heater when replacing an existing electric storage tank water heater, or building a new home.
