Swimming pool heat pump for domestic hot water
I am looking for an efficient way to heat water in my new ICF home. I want to stay away from gas appliances and rely on my PV panels. I have looked into systems such as Chiltrix, Sanden, and Daiken Altherma but they are all over $4,000.
I am also trying to avoid Hybrid heat pump water heaters as I live in Northern Utah (zone 6B) and have read that they aren’t the quietest.
Can anyone talk me out of using a heat pump water heater such as this: (https://amzn.to/2M4wfLY) paired with a marathon 105 gal. water heater? I realize that it is designed for pool use but I could pair it with glycol and a heat exchanger to keep the lines from freezing. Any cautions or concerns?
