Can heat pump water heater freeze pipes in basement
We just bought a 1900 farmhouse in rural Massachusetts and were considering putting in a heat pump water heater in the basement, which is unfinished with stone foundation and concrete floor. Our HVAC guy warned against it, suggesting it could cool the basement too much in winter and freeze our pipes. So wondering if this is a real problem, and if it is could we put in a vent system that would allow us to use external air during the winter months and switch over to using basement air during the summer months.
