Quietest heat-pump water heaters?

Dylan Kinsey | Posted in Mechanicals on

Hey There Fellow Tradespeople,

Wondering if anyone has any recent experience in shopping for heat-pump water heaters. Would love to know what some of the quietest models and makes are. I’ve Googled around and stumbled onto several outdated sources on this. Any thoughts out there? Thanks!

    My Rheem 65 gallon is speced at 49 dBA, which is pretty quiet considering. Many dishwashers, which run longer cycles, are louder.

    Thanks for your response Norman! I'll look into it. : )
