Water heating is the second largest source of energy use in most households. Home Energy Medics installs energy efficient water heaters in homes throughout Northern Virginia, Maryland, and the metro DC area that help you save money and energy while providing enough water for your entire family.

Our team of award-winning whole home experts installs two main types of hot water heaters: heat pump water heaters and tankless water heaters. Reach out today to find the right upgrade for your home.

Heat Pump Water Heater Installation

Heat pump water heaters (HPWHs) use the same underlying technology as heat pump space heating systems, moving heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly like traditional water heaters do. This process makes them significantly more energy efficient!

Benefits of Heat Pump Water Heaters

Energy Efficient: HPWHs can be up to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric water heaters.

Save Money: Lower operating costs compared to traditional heaters.

Eco-Friendly: Reduced greenhouse gas emissions, making your home better for the environment.

Tankless Water Heaters Installation

Gas tankless water heaters provide hot water on demand, heating water directly without the use of a storage tank. This reduces energy wasted as it only heats water you’re going to immediately use.

Advantages of Gas Tankless Water Heaters

Continuous Hot Water: Never run out of hot water; ideal for large families.

Saved Space: Compact size frees up valuable space in your home.

Energy Savings: Only heat water when it's needed, reducing energy bills.

Making the Switch: From Gas to Electric

Local homeowners interested in electrifying their home and moving away from combustion appliances know that replacing their fossil fuel-burning water heaters is a big step in the electric direction. Home electrification allows you to run your home more efficiently using cleaner energy. And, once you switch to all electric appliances and systems, you can power your home for free with solar panels.

For homeowners considering switching from gas to high efficiency heat pump hot water heaters, Home Energy Medics can help you choose an energy-saving model that’s sized to provide all the hot water your family needs.

Incentives for Energy-Efficient Water Heater Installation

Home Energy Medics can help you take advantage of a number of hot water heater incentives that will help you lower the upfront costs of installation, including:

  • Federal Tax Credits: Significant tax savings for installing energy-efficient systems.

  • Local Utility Rebates: Many local utilities, including Pepco, BGE, and Dominion Energy, offer rebates for energy-efficient water heater installations.

  • Financing Options: Flexible financing solutions to make the upgrade more affordable.

Incentives are often changing, but our team stays up to date on the latest requirements and qualifications and can help you maximize your savings—talk to us today to see how much you could stand to save.

Looking for Duct Sealing? Did you know...

There is a substantial amount of energy loss when your HVAC system works overtime to make up for leaks and gaps in your ductwork. In addition to increased energy bills, the unnecessary strain on your system can significantly shorten its lifespan or lead to costly repairs. Air duct leaks can also create indoor air quality issues by allowing dust, allergens, and other pollutants easy access to the air circulating through your home. Having properly sealed ducts keeps these pollutants out of the air you breathe and balances temperatures, leaving your home feeling more comfortable.


I hired Home Energy Medics August of 2021 to soundproof my bedroom. I live in a condo and could hear the neighbors above and next door to me and it was disrupting my sleep.
