You guys are correct about a heat pump being more energy efficiency than a resistance heating element. I recently installed a hybrid hot water heater. I have an external energy monitor on this circuit. The hybrid hot water heater used 1/4 the energy of a standard hot water heater. With the tax credit, the heater will pay for itself in 4 years.

The one I just had put in the cabin is better than an electric heater down to around 0 deg F. Around here, dropping below freezing is rare event. -- Try my Sensible Email package! https://sourceforge.net/projects/sensibleemail/ SensibleEmail download | SourceForge.net<https://sourceforge.net/projects/sensibleemail/> sourceforge.net Download SensibleEmail for free.
