Forcing Heat Pump Water Heater Mode
I would like to switch from an electric water heater to a hybrid heat pump water heater.
I am in southern NH, so fairly cold in basement in winter.
I don’t want to over cool the basement as it is used by people to some extent.
I have a dehumidifier in the basement which runs for most of the year.
I would like to use the heat pump water heater whenever dehumidification is needed, and when its not too cold down there. Basically I could make or break a relay when those conditions aren’t met and we’d like to switch to electric mode.
I see notes here and there that if certain sensors fail the units will default to electric only. Any notes or ideas on any scheme to have a relay switch the heat pump into electric only?
