Advice on size and brand of Hybrid (Heat Pump) Hot Water Heater
I’ve got a 60 gallon, indirect (oil) fired hot water heater that is on it’s way out. I’d very much like to replace it with a Hybrid Heat Pump Hot Water Heater.
I wanted to get your thoughts on which brand was best. And also advice on how large of a system.
I’ve got a large family with 6 people in it. There are 5 women / teenagers in the house. I’ve read the hybrid Heat Pump HW heaters are very efficient, but can take a while to heat up the water. In a house of six, where we take A LOT of showers, we don’t have the time to wait, nor do we want to run out.
Do you recommend I keep with a 60 gallon, or upgrade to an 80-90? And if I have the 60 and the old-school resistance heat coil kicks in how much will that hit my wallet a month?
