With our electric hot H20 8 years old, and the tax credit expiring 12/31/2010, I decided to purchase a Electric Heat Pump Water Heater.
Our home is currently 100% electric, no gas applicance nor furnace.
Lowes had 10% off (for $1450), plus 30% fed tax credit (additional $435 off), plus 10% state tax credit ($145 off) means cost is approx $905.
This was installed week of 12/27, has anybody else here installed one of these Electric Heat Pump Water Heaters?
I've read the heat pump makes noise, did you experience relatively "loud" noise?
My noise level is not bad at all, being located in same room at GeoThermal unit (dedicated HVAC utility room with closed door).
