The Rheem EcoSense 50 gal. Hybrid Heat Pump Water heater is the most efficient electric water heater in its class. The integrated heat pump module removes heat from the surrounding air and transfers it to the water inside the tank. An energy factor of 2.45 reduces operating costs by $329 annually when compared to a standard 50 gal. electric model. Incoloy stainless steel elements provide backup heating capacity during periods of high demand or when ambient air drops below 37 degree F. The water heater features a full-color touch screen LCD display with intuitive controls and diagnostic capabilities. A 240 volt electrical connection is required for installation. The patented magnesium anode rod design incorporates a special resistor that protects the tanks from rust, providing longer tank life. Factory installed temperature and pressure relief valve and 3/4 in. water connections are included with the water heater for easy installation. This model has a 12 year limited tank and parts warranty plus a 1 year in home labor warranty. This Rheem EcoSense Hybrid model is Wifi compatible allowing for remote monitoring of the water heater's operation (WiFi Module REWRA631EWH sold separately).
