Mini split to make up heat lost to hybrid water heater?
We have an 80 gallon State hybrid hot water heater in our finished basement (new construction). It keeps the basement really cool in summer, as it sucks heat out of the already cool basement (in Maine). My question relates to winter: should I use the minisplit that we installed in the basement to make up for the heat loss from the hybrid hot water heater; or should we run the hybrid hot water heater in “electric only” mode to stop it from eating up the heat?
