Heat pump water heaters will not operate efficiently in a cold space


The least expensive way to heat domestic hot water is with natural gas



a heat-pump water heater transfers heat from the room to a tank of water — in effect, cooling the room

Most heat-pump water heaters have controls that allow a homeowner to choose one of three modes of operation:
•Heat-pump-only mode (a mode that is energy-efficient, but that doesn’t allow long showers).
•Hybrid mode (heat-pump operation plus electric resistance backup).
•Electric-resistance-only mode (a mode that you could choose during cold weather, when you might not want the appliance to cool the space where it is located).
most heat-pump water heater manufacturers advise that the room should measure at least 750 or 1,000 cubic feetIn the worst-case scenario, all of the heat scavenged by the water heater during the winter is robbed from a home’s conditioned space

OP your savings are less than calculated over 2 years. The utility co's jack the rate every year.

I pay 3x for electricity now than 3 years ago and use 1/2 the amount with all my upgrades. The high efficient upgrades will never pay me back at this rate.

Wouldn't it actually pay back faster since the rate per kwh you pay goes up?

Hot DAMN! Great deal -- TU & Rep'd. Too bad I can't take advantage of it, but again, great deal!

Not only will your payback be ~2-years, but you also get a BRAND NEW water heater -- as they don't last forever, depending on the age of your current/former heater, all the better!

TU & Rep'd (even though I can't take advantage of the deal).

Yes- Dated contractor invoice, including name & license #, HPWH make, model and size, customers name & address, and installed cost.

I can't speak from experience other than installing gas water heaters that the task is easy and takes an able body or 2 no under an hour to do and doesn't justify the cost of service charged by many. The requirement for a permit is equally another ridiculous money grab in the name of safety.

Just a $30 rebate [sce.com] here in SoCal. laugh out loud

There has to be another deal site for State specific deals you might or might not be able to use.
I feel it's a waste of SD'ers time to wade through the it's only in my State posts or YMMV for a lucky guy in one city that gets a good deal.

I import my water from the icebergs that used to be home for polar bears. What's the best way to heat this foreign water?
