Water Heater Installation in Boyton Beach, Florida
Here is an example of a recent water heater installation in Boyton Beach, Florida. The old water heater was located in the garage next to the furnace. The estimated yearly energy costs was listed as $555 per year. The customer has has 2 teenagers, so the costs were probably more.
Originally we quoted an electric tankless hot water heater that would heat water for the whole house. Tankless electric water heaters require much more electricity when in use. So to add the new panel and the new breakers, would have made the cost too high.
Our solution was to install a hybrid or heat pump hot water heater. This did not require any extra electrical work and the energy savings beat a tankless hot water heater.
As and added benefit, the hybrid hot water heater will blow cool air into his garage which is only partially cooled by his AC.
Other benefits include Wifi connections. The customer can set his hot water heater, turn it off, put it on vacation mode or change the temperature. He can do this through the Rheem App that he downloaded for his iPhone.
