Installing Heat Pump Water Heaters (HPWH) in new homes is one of the easiest and most cost-effective ways to incorporate high efficiency water heating into buildings. Yet, the vast majority of builders are not familiar with and not using advanced water heating technology.

Join the Advanced Water Heating Initiative (AWHI), EEBA and Electrify Now for a webinar that will profile three American homebuilders who are installing heat pump water heaters in new homes and loving it. Our discussion will highlight the experiences these builders have had with this important technology and cover the following topics:
• Installing HPWHs in new, all-electric homes
• Why builders are installing and love HPWH
• What are the benefits and challenges of installing HPWH in new homes?
• Are builders modifying their home designs to fit and take advantage of HPWH?
• What are homeowner’s saying when they buy homes with HPWHs?
• Any lessons that can be applied to installing HPWHs in existing homes?

Webinar attendees are eligible to receive AIA credits (*pending)

Panelists Include:

  • Juan Fernandez – Owner, CVF Homes in San Antonio Texas
  • Leigha Dickens – Green Building Program Manager, Green Built Alliance in Asheville, NC
