Waiting too long for hot water? A recirculating pump can solve that problem



Many large homes have the hot water heater located far away from the master bathroom. This causes you to wait for hot water since the lukewarm water in the lines must be drained out.

The solution to this is a recirculating pump. That used to require a line that was attached to the furthest fixture from the hot water heater. However, now there is a solution that allows a pump to be installed on the water heater and a small non-electric valve under the furthest sink.

Also, you can set the pump timer so that you are not wasting electricity when it is not needed.

today and we can get you instant hot water to your master bathroom and kitchen.

GE GeoSpring Hybrid Heat Pump Hot Water Heater Installed



We replaced an older 80-gallon electric hot water heater with a GE GeoSpring Hybrid hot water heater. Our customer purchased the water heater at Lowes and he bought their extended warranty.

GE is no longer producing the GeoSpring. However, there are still a few left at Lowes and they are discounting them.

For future installations, we can install the A.O. Smith Hybrid hot water heater and our pricing is comparable to the GE GeoSpring.

Hybrid hot water heaters are highly recommended for those looking for energy efficiency. You can save up to $400 per year on your electric bill and have plenty of hot water available.

Advantages of Hybrid Electric Hot Water Heater Versus Natural Gas Power Vent Hot Water Heater'

Leave a Comment
Hybrid Hot Water Heater Instead of Natural Gas Power Vent Hot Water Heater


In the past, natural gas hot water heaters were the choice for energy conscious consumers. They were less expensive in terms of monthly energy costs. However, now heat pump electric hot water heaters, also called hybrid hot water heaters, are changing that.

The hybrid hot water heater has several advantages over a gas hot water heater.

Hybrid Advantages

Does not need an 18" High Platform to be installed in a garage

No flame burning in the unit - safer

Lower Energy Costs $151 per year estimated in warmer climates

Blows cool air and dehumidifies the space

Quieter - A power vent gas hot water heater is loud when running, sounds like a small jet engine. The Hybrid has a fan that is only 51db about like a refrigerator. A power vent gas is 74 db.

No exhaust fumes that exit the unit outside your home. Again, safer and not risk of CO2 poisoning.

Disadvantages

Not ideal for cold climates - Would require extra ducting to vent cold air outside.

Needs extra lines for condensate drains

Requires 220v service

Here is an example of a switch from a natual gas power vented hot water heater to an electric hybrid hot water heater. This water heater is installed in Evergrene subdivision Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. The owner is very happy with the switch. They enjoy the little air conditioning boost in their garage and the decrease in sound levels.

Hybrid Hot Water Heater Versus Tankless

Hybrid Hot Water Heater Versus Tankless



Tankless hot water heaters have been the choice of energy conscious consumers over the past 15 years. The new trend is hybrid hot water heaters that combine tankless technology with a tank. Which is better? I'm vote Hybrid/Heat pump style hot water heaters, especially in warm humid climates. Update: FPL weighs in on the issue and the Heat Pump Hybrid wins with them as well, read more here.

The tankless hot hot water heater is only on when there is a demand for hot water. This saves money over the traditional tank style heater. The old tank style can lose energy from heat loss because the hot water is stored. The disadvantage is that many tankless heaters may need to be installed near the point of use. If a whole house tankless is used, then you have issues with having to run the water to drain the water in the line before you get to the hot water. You can install a recirculating pump to eliminate this lag. However that requires and electric pump and possibly a tank. The tank is what we were trying to avoid with this installation. Another disadvantage is flow rate, many tankless hot water heaters have low flow rates and the tankless heaters with high flow rates that can handle a whole house tend to be very expensive.

The hybrid heat pump hot water heater use electricity to move heat from one place to another instead of generating heat directly. Therefore, they can be two to three times more energy efficient than conventional electric resistance water heaters. To move the heat, heat pumps work like a refrigerator in reverse.

Heat pump water heaters require installation in locations that remain in the 40º–90ºF (4.4º–32.2ºC) range year-round and provide at least 1,000 cubic feet (28.3 cubic meters) of air space around the water heater. Cool exhaust air can be exhausted to the room or outdoors. Install them in a space with excess heat, such as a laundry room or a garage. The heat pump also dehumidifies the space where it is installed.

The energy costs of a hybrid hot water heater are slightly lower or equal to the tankless style heaters.

If you live in a warm climate, the clear winner is the Hybrid Hot Water Heater (Heat Pump), if you live in a colder climate the tankless would be a great option.

Rheem Hot Water Heater From 1984 to 2017 Still Going

Rheem Hot Water Heater From 1984 Still Going

This customer had a hot water heater from Rheem and the date of installation was 1984. That was 33 years ago. We installed a new Rheem Hot Water Heater and if the new one performs like this, the customer will not need a new tank until 2050.

This is one reason that we install Rheem hot water heaters. They seem to outlast the other brands.

BTW, the hole in the wall and other plumbing, is not our work. We cleaned up the old work and installed a new hot water heater.
