Convenience

  • Offers easy replacement of standard electric water heater
  • Fits in similar footprint as a standard 50-gallon water heater with a height of 60-1/2" and a width of 21-3/4"
  • Uses existing water and electrical connections

eHeat™ Mode

Maximize your savings. In this mode, the water heater only operates the heat pump to heat the water. This is the most efficient mode, and allows for the greatest amount of savings.

Hybrid Mode

Use less energy while still experiencing fast recovery times. While the unit uses the heat pump as its primary means to heat the water, the standard electric elements may activate if a faster water temperature recovery time is needed. When the system determines that demand has been met, it will automatically revert back to using the heat pump only. This is the default mode the electric water heater is shipped in.

High Demand Mode

This is a great feature if you have guests spending the weekend and need increased amounts of hot water. High Demand mode operates very similar to Hybrid mode, but lets the system know in advance that it will be experiencing a larger water demand than usual. The water heater will be faster to react to temperature recovery by cycling on the heating elements sooner and for a longer duration of time.

Standard Electric Mode

This mode shuts off the heat pump and only uses the electric elements to heat the water, just like a standard electric water heater. Standard mode allows for operation in extremely cold situations (less than 45°F) where heat pump functionality would not be ideal.

Vacation Mode

With this setting, the system will drop the temperature set point to 50°F to save energy, while also preventing the water from freezing. Simply set how many days you will be away, with a minimum of 3 and a maximum of 90. The unit automatically heats the water to the previous set temperature the day before you are expected to return. Now you can experience a hot shower the moment you return home.

How It Works

A compressor and evaporator are integrated into the electric water heater unit and the evaporator draws in ambient heat from surrounding air using two variable speed fans. Condenser coils wrap the tank all the way to the bottom to transfer this heat into the tank and heat the water.

Air Filter

In the Hybrid, eHeat and High Demand modes, the water heater moves air through the system and out the back of the unit. An air filter is in place to protect the evaporator from accumulating dirt and dust. A clean air filter is important to get the highest efficiency. When the filter requires cleaning, a red indicator light above the "Filter" button will become illuminated, and an audible beep will sound. The filter can be wiped clean with a damp rag or rinsed with warm water.
