Select from Efficiency, Hybrid, or Electric modes to match heating requirements to environmental conditions.
The most energy-efficient setting works by extracting warmth from the surrounding air, concentrating the heat and transferring it to the water.
This mode uses the heat pump for efficiency, but will use the element for quick recovery following increased hot water usage.
In Electric Mode, the unit operates as a electric water heater, utilizing the elements only for conditions when limited ambient heat is available.
One touch operation maintains tank temperature at 60°F (15.6°C) during vacation or extended absence to reduce operating costs and provide freeze protection.
The greatest savings and quickest payback may occur in regions where the average temperatures are colder. Operating five months out of the year in the heat pump mode where electricity rates are two to three times higher will yield more savings than operating 10 months in the heat pump mode where electricity rates are lower.
