Heat pump water heater was designed and a prototype was developed and constructed. The performance of the heat pump water heater prototype is described by presenting some experimental test data. The experimental measurements include temperature, flow rates, and power consumption. The testing procedure consisted of evaluating the recovery rate and the coefficient of performance (COP) of the system. The results strongly indicate that heat pump water heater system design is very practical and it provides the consumer with a more efficient hot water heater alternative.
