Hybrid Water Heaters
What’s the big deal about hybrid water heaters?
A hybrid water heater provides the same supply of hot water you’ve grown accustomed to, but with less cost!

Hybrid water heaters save a lot of money and energy when they are in heat pump mode, which means they need a lot of air to operate properly. A hybrid water heater needs to be installed where it has access to 700 cubic feet of air; this is equivalent to an 8’x10’ room. Garages are the ideal place, but you can install them in your basement as well. Mechanical closets are not typically going to be good options unless you vent the water heater to get air from outside. Vent kits are available at most hardware stores.
Cowlitz PUD offers a $600 rebate if you replace a standard electric water heater with a hybrid water heater. We do not require you to have your water heater installed by a licensed contractor. There is a video on our website if you want to see how to install one.
