Heat-pump water heater
My future house will be in an rural area without natural gas lines (propane tank is an option). I’d like to go all electric (solar), and use a heat pump water heater (A.O. Smith 80 gallon). I was going to build a detached garage and have the mechanical room in the house for all the various system components, but this could be a problem for the water heater since it needs open space to function (garage). What do you think? Skip the detached garage idea?
