When selecting the right water heating system for a commercial setting application, the challenge is finding the solution that excels in a variety of areas. There are usually multiple business goals to consider. They may be to save more energy and money, improve building efficiency ratings or to find a low maintenance solution. See how the Rheem® Commercial Heat Pump Water Heater Split System addresses these goals while keeping in line with regional decarbonization regulations.

How Sustainability Leads to Savings

With sustainable choices becoming more important, it makes sense to think long term. Energy regulation compliance and green building ratings require a highly efficient water heating system.
The new Rheem heat pump system reduces carbon footprint and operating costs by up to 75%. With an efficiency that exceeds 4.0 Coefficient of Performance (COP) at 80°F ambient and 60% relative humidity, it uses less energy than electric, gas or propane. There are rebate incentives and tax credits available that help offset the initial expense. All this adds to the ROI for this super high-efficiency choice that brings energy cost savings.

Tested Performance and Durability

Finding a water heating system that will last is a top factor in a commercial application. You want to pick a product that has proven itself. It must operate in your climate and last long enough to be worth the cost. This Rheem solution has been used in Australia for more than 10 years. It’s a new option for the North American market, but it has stood the test of time.

It can be used in most mild climates. With automatic defrost and electric tank back-up for lower temps, the system provides max hot water outlet temperature up to 150°F. It’s built with high-quality components and epoxy-coated evaporator coils that provide protection in corrosive marine environments.
