How do Heat Pump Water Heaters work?

Heat Pump hot water systems work like a refrigerator but in reverse, they absorb heat from the air and vaporise the refrigerant, which is then compressed raising its pressure and temperature. The water runs through a network of pipes, then the hot water is stored for your use.
