Great Product

Comments about 50 Gallon Voltex Residential Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater:

I installed this product 2 weeks ago and it has been great. The recovery time on this unit is fast so we can consume a lot of HW at once and have not been able to run out. Doing landuray, filling a extra deep bath and taking a shower afterwards and no issues with running low on HW. So far great unit and great price. It does really cool down the basement which is great in the summer, maybe in the winter we will switch to electric only from hybrid.

Comments about 50 Gallon Voltex Residential Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater:

Here in NH the primary heating fuel is oil, and my oil boiler also has a direct coil hot water heater. This is great during the winter, because the boiler is already hot, but I have been burning over 150 gallons during the summer.
I installed the Voltex water heater last weekend and am finally able to shut down the boiler for the summer.
For the most part, installation was easy. I also ordered all my pex fittings here, and plumbing was simple. My only complaint is the size of the electrical box on the water heater. It takes some persuasion to get the wires tucked into it due to the small size.
So far I love the unit. It definitely makes my basement cooler, which will be nice once it warms up a little more. It seems to be providing plenty of hot water so far in efficiency mode, but I haven't used a ton. Later this week it should get a work out once everyone is home.
Still early for savings estimate, but with federal and local incentives, it should pay for itself in about 3 years.

Unit was damaged, but works great.

Comments about 50 Gallon Voltex Residential Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater:

It is easy to install. Runs very quietly. Keeps the garage cool. Havent had it long enough to evaluate the savings.

Had a dent in the front of it from the factory. It wasn't done in shipping. Everyone that sees it, being new technology a lot of friends want to look at it, thought it shouldn't have been sold as an undamaged item.

        Comments about 50 Gallon Voltex Residential Hybrid Electric Heat Pump Water Heater:

        I had read that the SHPT-50 is both quieter and more efficient than its closest competitor, the GE GeoSpring 50. I wanted to try one and had the opportunity last week. So far so good!

            A:

            The unit may provide up to ½ ton cooling capacity and de-humidification (6,000 BTU). For your installation the water heater must have unrestricted airflow and requires a minimum installation space of 700 cubic feet to operate correctly.
