A Sanco2 Hot Water Heat Pump uses industry-leading technology found in refrigeration and air conditioning units, where energy is drawn in from the ambient atmosphere and transferred into heat.
Using radically less electricity when compared to conventional hot water systems, this system will save you up to 80% of your hot water energy costs, year after year. And no, it doesn’t involve cold showers!
Go Green With a Sanco Water Heater
The SANCO₂ Water Heater takes convenience and cost savings to the next level. It is the perfect choice for California homeowners who want to reduce their carbon footprint without compromising comfort.
Heating water uses the most energy in your Concord home after heating and cooling. Imagine how much energy a conventional storage tank uses, constantly warming water even when nobody needs it!
An Eco-Friendly Water Heater
The SANCO₂ is the most environmentally friendly water heater on the market, using a CO2 refrigerant that has a low Global Warming Potential (GWP). This unique system reduces greenhouse gas emissions and eliminates the production of carbon monoxide (CO).
- The highest first-hour rating of any residential electric water heater
- A faster recovery time than its competitors
- One of the most comprehensive warranties on the market
- 80 percent savings over electric resistance water heaters and 40 percent savings over a hybrid heat pump water heater
How Does it Work?
All the heat from your water heater starts through the heat pump installed outdoors next to your Pittsburg home. Cold water enters the bottom of the tank and travels through pipes into the heat pump. The CO2 refrigerant (plus any heat from the outside air) heats the water before sending it back to the tank.
Installation is simple, only requiring two water pipes connecting the tank to the outdoor water heat pump.
Available Tax Credits
The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) offers several incentives to help you go green. Purchase a heat pump water heater, and you could qualify for $1,750 in rebates, depending on your income.
You also qualify for a 30 percent tax credit up to $2,000, regardless of your income, when you purchase an ENERGY STAR® certified heat pump water heater! Our team will help with the paperwork to ensure you get the best deal.
Advantages of a Heat Pump Water Heater
The SANCO₂ transfers heat instead of generating it—without burning fossil fuels. As a result, it is up to three times more efficient than a gas-burning storage-tank water heater. That results in hundreds of dollars in savings per year for an average household in California.
Heat pump water heaters warm your water without warming the planet. Pair your SANCO₂ with solar energy to enjoy practically zero carbon emissions! Move toward an environmentally friendly way of keeping your home comfortable—and save money in the process.
What Sets the SANCO₂ Apart From the Competition?
The SANCO₂ is the only residential heat pump water heater that uses an inverter compressor to move the refrigerant. An inverter compresses varies the speed of the compressor, allowing it to run continuously at slower speeds, saving you money on energy use.
The variable-speed fan and water pump operate similarly to the inverter compressor, allowing them to run at an operating speed based on load requirements to optimize energy use. Compare this to a standard storage-tank water heater that constantly burns fuel to warm water.
The SANCO₂ is backed by over 30 years of experience in the growing heat pump water heater market, offering the best warranty protection of any heat pump water heater in the North American market.
Heat Pump—A 10-year warranty on all parts, PLUS a 10-year unit replacement warranty if any refrigerant-carrying component fails
Stainless Steel Tanks—15-year warranty, limited lifetime
Glass Lined Tanks—10-year warranty
System—3-year labor warranty
More homes throughout Antioch, Brentwood, and other parts of California are installing heat pumps as municipalities around the country continue to adopt new guidelines that prohibit natural gas connections for household appliances.
The SANCO₂ heat pump water heater offers you the next generation in heating water. It provides an eco-friendly solution that keeps your family safe and comfortable.
