How much dehumidifcation can I expect from a heat pump water heater?
I’m considering installing a heat pump water heater in the basement of my home in central PA.
As part of my payback time calculation, I’d like to try to determine just how much dehumidification I can expect it to do in the basement. I currently run a dehumidifier in the basement to maintain the humidity at 55% which costs in the area of $0.70 per day to run this time of year. Additionally, my water heater accounts for about $260 of electricity usage every year.
I’m specifically looking at a 65 gallon Rheem model — does anyone know how I might go about determining just how much humidity it will be removing
